The band is fresh, new, and different on the disc, without losing the blues feel.”

Blues again draws large crowd - Ohio’s Deuce ’n a Quarter, led by front man Brian Peters, brought their rich sound to the Blues by the Bay stage Saturday. ”

John Morris - Iosco County News-Herald

Like a well-oiled General Motors vehicle, the CD goes from zero to 60 right out of the gate....”

— Karen Nugent - Blues Blast Magazine July 2016

Deuce ‘n a Quarter is not only a great band to witness live but they are easy guys to work with on a festival level. They are openly grateful for the opportunity to play, thankful for any support and hospitality and they work hard to publicize every event they play via social media. Jeffrey Allens gritty guitar work and Brian Peter’s heartfelt vocals and harmonica solos make this band more than just another bar band. Radio ready originals and classic covers bring together a sound for blues and blues rock fans. Don’t hesitate to book these guys for your next festival, club, or corporate event. ”

— Bob Thomas, Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival

A hot Columbus blues band fronted by the strong voice and wailing harp of Brian Peters. ”

Raul Watson - Blues-E-News

Rich, smooth, and clean. No one feature overwhelms another. Plenty of power lurks beneath the hood, reserved for right moments. ”

Daniel Killinger

Brian Peters blows the helloutta that harp!”
