The Petersens, an award-winning family band, will knock your sox off with Mayberry RFD humor and a top-notched bluegrass sound. The band performs traditional bluegrass standards of Bill Monroe, Doyle Lawson and Rhonda Vincent as well as contemporary standards of Alison Krauss and Balsam Range. To the mix, The Petersens add twin fiddle tunes, gospel acapella, original songs and yodeling to completely satisfy the bluegrass appetite of the audience.
The Petersens have a weekly show at the Little Opry Theater in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex and have been performing there since 2010. The group has recently been in the spotlight in the midwest after lead singer and banjo player, Ellen, competed in the reality TV show American Idol.
The band is available for festivals, churches, and special events including dinner entertainment, family reunions, and weddings.
