Band Member Bio's
For Brian Peters singing and playing the Harmonica is what he was born to do! Influenced by greats like Sonny Boy, Little Walter, William Clarke, Charlie McCoy and Paul Delay, he has developed his own sound and style. His soulful voice and harmonica playing quickly landed him his first steady gig with The Shaun Booker Band. Since then Brian has found his place as a singer/songwriter & front-man for both Deuce 'n a Quarter and Mill Street Blues. Brian is a proud user of Windy City Harp Amps!
Jeffrey Allen from Southern California cut his teeth at a young age on Hollywood Fats, Kid Ramos, Junior Watson and the great T-Bone Walker. Relocating to Central Ohio in the 90’s, he has played with several blues bands and continues to spread the West Coast style of blues music. Jeffrey is endorsed by Hamiltone Guitars, SIT strings & IntuneGP guitar picks!
John Sipher studied improvisation with Columbus jazz great Dave Wheeler. He played with local legends Willie Pooch, Dave Workman, and Stan Smith in the early 70s. In 2009 he joined Ellie Lee and Blues Fury.
Andre R. Scott developed a love for music at an early age, but didn’t start playing seriously until well into his adult years. Some of the musicians who have influenced André are Stevie Wonder, Steve Gadd, Gerald Heyward, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Ferrone, Teddy Campbell, Calvin Rodgers, Bernard Purdie, Neil Peart, JoJo Mayer, Chris Coleman and many, many others. André loves the challenge of playing different genres of music, as he often says…”I just wanna play.”
