“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
Sometimes it’s the simple things that feel so good. Deuce ‘n a Quarter is a modern blues band that blends their talents, influences, and hardships into a simple yet strong rhythm and blues sound that leaves you feeling good! With an authentic new vibe and old soul feel, it’s easy to relate to and connect with their music and live performances.
The band has an established reputation for always being professional, easy to work with, and a crowd favorite! Their accolades include the following: Ohio Music Awards winner for best blues CD 2015 & 2018, Columbus Blues Challenge winner 2015, 2018, & 2022 and International Blues Challenge quarter finalist in 2016 & 2019. The band has a lengthy list of noteworthy performances at reputable festivals and notable venues. Although each band member would agree that the song is the only star on the stage, they all have a list of credits and standout performances where they shine brightly.
Original music is their forte, and they haven’t slowed down since the release of their debut album in 2015. After the release of the single “Why?”—a song written after the untimely death of front man Brian Peters’ eldest daughter in 2019—they made two trips to Baton Rouge to record with the American Bluesman Kenny Neal. That album is scheduled for release sometime in 2023, so stay posted for the official release date. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy the ride with Deuce ‘n a Quarter!
