Peter Veteska and Blues Train was formed in 2013 and is led by New York Blues Hall-of-Famer Peter Veteska on guitar and vocals; B3 legend Jeff Levine on keyboards; and top-flight Jersey Shore musicians Alex D’Agnese on drums and Coo Moe Jhee on bass. Well known throughout the mid-Atlantic region, the band has also performed at events and festivals from Maine to Florida.
From their debut, self-titled album released in 2015 through today, Peter Veteska and Blue Train's critically-acclaimed music has been played on radio and streaming services in 15 countries. Grass Ain't Greener on the Other Side, the band's fifth album, spent 3 weeks in the top ten Blues Albums on the Roots Music Report and 3 months in the top ten on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay charts.
In a review for Blues Blast magazine, Marty Gunther describes Veteska as "one of the most talented but overlooked artists in the blues world today." Now, with the release of So Far So Good, the band's sixth album in seven years, the Blues Train travels onward toward continued international acclaim. So Far So Good has spent 2 weeks in the top ten on B.B. King’s Bluesville on SiriusXM, 2 months in the top ten on the Living Blues chart, and an impressive 21 weeks as the #1 New Jersey album on the Roots Music Report chart to name a few of the highlights.
“Peter Veteska has established himself as one of the classiest artists in the New York metropolitan area in the past decade…one of the most talented but overlooked artists in the the blues world today.”
Marty Gunther, Blues Blast Magazine
“Inevitably, there’s something to be said for reliability and a desire to convey an essential sound without attempting to add or embellish it simply for the sake of enhancing it unnecessarily. Veteska & Blues Train deserve credit for being able to tap those traditions while also imbuing them with their particular skill and savy.”
Lee Zimmerman, Living Blues Magazine
“Peter Veteska’s vocals are always powerful and heartfelt. His Stratocaster is always tough, mirroring his vocals, avoiding cliches, and arriving at some nice, unexpected turns of phrase.”
Bob Montelione, Big City Rhythm and Blues Magazine
