The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band continues its’ run on the road with a brand new batch of headlining dates across the U.S. this fall!
THE WORD IS OUT! FOLLOWING A 6 WEEK TOUR OF EUROPE AND OVER A DOZEN DATES ON WARPED TOUR, THE REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND IS SPREADING THE WORD WORLDWIDE!
“Funny, you’d never peg Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band as a Midwestern group. With its sparse, blues-rooted compositions of washboard, acoustic guitar, drums and vocals, the band’s music seems more at home in juke joints of the Mississippi Delta or the streets of Memphis.” — Ricardo Baca, The Denver Post
“The old-school band plays a passionate and at times poignant style of blues.” — Ed Condran, The Intelligencer, Philadelphia, PA
“The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band stomps and hollers like nobody else.” — Chris J. Magyar, Good Times, Santa Cruz, CA
“The name might just be the best descriptor of the band’s sound, a hybrid of roots blues and punk-rock intensity.” — Vince Darcangelo, Daily Camera, Boulder, CO
“Gifted at guitar/dobro, writing, and singing. The Rev. Peyton is a triple threat.” — Tim Richards, Blues News International
“The artistic formula resonates with Peyton, his wife Breezy and his brother Jayme, who have toured the United States relentlessly since mid-2006.” — David Lindquist, Indianapolis Star
“The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band actually isn’t that big! The modest three-piece from Indianapolis makes up for its size deficiency with a high-energy sound steeped in classic Blues tradition.” — Mike Breen, Citybeat, Cincinnati, OH

About The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band:
With ordained minister, Kentucky Colonel, and Wildman virtuoso The Rev. Peyton up front on the national guitar, his wife the lovely and equally insane Washboard Breezy, and little brother Jayme Peyton keeping time on the kick and snare, this is a band that somehow crosses the barriers between indie rock/punk rock kids, scenesters, and traditional blues fans.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is touring in support of their latest release ‘The Whole Fam Damnily’ which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Blues chart. In 2008 the band played in over 50 cities nationwide including over 50 dates supporting Flogging Molly, Hot Buttered Rum, and headlining their own gigs. In 2009 they continued touring including 6 weeks in Europe and over a dozen stops on the Warped Tour. The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band can be heard on Sirius, XM, and FM, college and specialty stations across the U.S. Furthermore, some of the tunes have been featured in several independent films and documentaries including “Mississippi Cold Case”, the Jerry Springer Show and Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know on NPR.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has toured 48 states and has been featured at Austin’s SXSW, the Monolith Festival in Denver, Lillehammer Blues Festival in Norway, the Sunflower River Blues Fest, and the Victor Wooten F.U.N.K Fest, Summercamp Festival in Chillicothe, Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale and appearances at the Rib America Festivals.
