Friday After 5 Party at The Pier featuring Deuce ‘n a Quarter @ Owensboro Convention Center
Aug 25 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Friday-After-5-ColorDeuce ‘n a Quarter is a Columbus Ohio based band fronted by the strong voice and wailing harp of Brian Peters. He is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections in Mid-Ohio with Steve Perakis on bass, Andre Scott on drums, Jeffrey Allen on guitar, and John Sipher on keys. Their rich and smooth sound of original music is treated like an old friend, as they faithfully add to the musical expressions of their many legendary influences. Teamed with Brian’s lyrical narrations, the band fosters the acceptance, even the romanticism of life’s physical and emotional hardships which, after all, is what the blues is all about!
