Lawrence Peters

Air Date: 06-13-14

The Lawrence Peters Outfit is a scrappy honky tonk band from Chicago, boasting a mutt pedigree as long as any you’ll find in the city’s country music scene. The group’s sound is deep-rooted in generations of country music tradition, with debts owed to Webb Pierce, Jimmy Martin, Hank Williams Sr., Harlan Howard, Dwight Yoakam and Ola Belle Reed.

Lawrence Peters sings and plays snare drum, leading the band through his finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The Outfit includes Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar, and Josh Piet on upright bass. Their debut album What You Been Missin’ was released nationally on January 17th, 2012, and the Lawrence Peters Songbook was released a month later.
