Fænomenet The Reverend Peyton´s Big Damn Band fra det sydlige Indiana leverer en svedig omgang hillbilly delta Blues. En top musikalsk orkan af roots, Americana og blues der har ry for at vælte enhver scene.

…deliver a sound that lives up to their name, with thick, bass-heavy, blues-based guitar figures and growling vocals accompanied by muscular but minimal drumming and the metallic percussive scratch of a washboard (making them one of the first rock bands to regularly feature the latter instrument since Black Oak Arkansas).

Det er det store amerikanske musiksite AllMusic.com, der skriver sådan om fænomenet The Reverend Peyton´s Big Damn Band – nok kun en trio, men så absolut leveringsdygtige i stor og tung lyd!

The Reverend Peyton himself går også og hedder Josh Peyton. Opvokset i Indiana og inspireret af sin fars pladesamling der bl.a. var fyldt med Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan og andre der trak tungt på amerikansk musiktradition.

Som 12-årig fik Josh en guitar og en forstærker – og en musiker var født. Som i alle den slags gode historier dannede Josh selvfølgelig et band og måtte derefter gå en masse grueligt igennem. Heldigvis mødte han undervejs sangerinden og vaskebræt-spilleren Breezy. De to forelskede sig, både sådan helt personligt og musikalsk – og dannede sammen Big Damn Band, der debuterede i 2004 med albummet ”The Pork n´ Beans Collection”. Selvfinansieret og selvudgivet – og solgt af bandet selv ved deres mange koncerter rundt omkring i USA.

Sidenhen er det blevet til en lang række udgivelser fra The Reverend Peyton´s Big Damn Band, i dag bestående af Josh, Breezy og trommeslageren Ben ”Birddog” Bussell. Med masser af svedig musik på sporene og underfundige titler som ”Big Damn Nation” (2006), ”The Whole Fam Damily” (2008) og ”Between The Ditches” (2012).

Trioen spiller op mod 250 koncerter om året, og er præcis så tighte som det lukkede gab på en aligator! Så glæd dig til en forrygende omgang tung og sumpet Delta-blues, spillet så det både lyder tidløst og af lige nu.

Eller som PopMatters.com skrev i deres anmeldelse af “So Delicious”: “This music may be simple, but it is mighty satisfying. In the processed world in which we live, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band reminds us of what has been lost and shows us how to git it back.”

“… the reincarnated Mississippi moan of guys like Son House… a burly soul punishing the senses with a Deltapunk attack and a heavy helping of rural realism. You can’t ignore his Big Damn Band’s gospel.”

Elmore

“The tent revival, almost punk energy of the Big Damn Band is a refreshing splash of coldwater to the face. Between The Ditches doesn’t keep it in the road – it takes up both lanes as it barrels along.”

Living Blues

“The country blues is a gift of 20th century American music, and it’s awesome to see a band tap into its legacy with so much gusto and original vision.”

Music City Roots

“These guys are a hillbilly blues throwback ensemble, though, and no amount of refinement can really push them off their mark. Peyton’s voice still croaks, shouts, and roars, and his unique, kinetic slide guitar playing, whether it’s a ’30s National guitar, a cigar-box guitar, a Gibson flattop 1929 L2, or an Airline Map electric guitar, still drives and churns like a runaway train.”

Allmusic

“The latest from Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Between The Ditches on SideOneDummy Records is, in short, a revelation. An amazingly well crafted, controlled explosion of talent, the range and depth of the music performed by the trio is remarkable.” – American Blues Scene

The Independent (UK)

"The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is a twenty-year-old bourbon in a room of vodka Red Bulls and PBRs; vintage yet timeless, exciting and still welcoming…”

MXDWN.COM

“The focal point and ring leader Reverend J. Peyton is the star of the show here flashing a guitar style that elates the ear, at times flying all over the fret board and equally delicately picking with ease.”
