Band Member Bio's
For Brian Peters singing and playing the Harmonica is what he was born to do! Influenced by his great uncle Joe Dalton who introduced and shared the love of blues and country music with him at a young age. Brian now shares that same love for music in his heartfelt voice, soulful harmonica playing and songwriting. He may be the front-man for Deuce 'n a Quarter but he is quick to say that the song is the only star on stage and it's the bands job to make it shine. 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 Ohio jazz great Dave Wheeler. He has performed with many great groups over the years but has finally found a home where he uses his experience and melodic touch to seamlessly join this group and their music together.
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.”
Bassist Martin O. Brown draws from a broad range of genres including Americana, blues, folk, gospel, jazz, rock and country. He has played worship services, stage plays, live club performances, benefit concerts and music festivals. Martin firmly believes in the idea of bringing an open mind and open ears to whatever music context he finds himself in. This has enriched his playing style and deepened the connection with those he’s privileged to share the stage with.
With talent, passion, and real life Deuce 'n a Quarter has become more than a band, they invite you to take the journey!
