Ernie Peniston was inducted into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame in 2003. He is a product, in part, of the Minneapolis music scene, and he has shared the stage with Prince, Morris Day, The Temptations, Koko Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, James Brown, Albert Collins, and many others. He also spent four years as the frontman with Blind Pig recording artists, Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings, traveling the US and Europe. A happenstance meeting in 2013 between Peniston and former EPB guitarist Joe Collins and a daisy chain of phone calls thereafter pulled together friends and musicians from across the country to re-form the Ernie Peniston Band. This reunion led to a string of engagements, culminating (so far) with the release of “Live at the Muddy Waters” (recorded earlier this year) and an appearance at the opening night of the 30th Mississippi Valley Blues Fest (Ernie played the first one in 1985).Peniston formed The Ernie Peniston Band in the Quad-Cities in the late 80’s, and the current players are a reiteration of an early 90's lineup of reacquainted consorts from all over.
