Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is back at Arlington Arts Centre this month, to perform its own blend of rootsy, country blues.
Through extensive touring, high energy showmanship and pursuit of musical authenticity, the trio are favourites wherever they perform, having built up loyal fan bases across the globe.
The Big Damn Band features the vocals and the finger picking guitar style of ‘Reverend’ Josh Peyton, his wife Breezy Peyton on washboard and vocals and Max Senteney on drums.
Perhaps best known for his viral ‘shotgun guitar’ video achieving more than one million views on YouTube plus many more on social media, the Reverend is now on tour, with the release of his latest album, The Front Porch Sessions.
The album demonstrates the Reverend’s guitar mastery and his impactful song writing. His new songs are just as vintage in their blues tones as the originals he covers.
Now boasting ten albums and hundreds of live shows under their belt, the Big Damn Band has a vast wealth of experience to pull upon during a show.
From the feel-good vibes of Pot Roast and Kisses to the darker themes of Devils Look Like Angels, the band brings passion and energy to the fore throughout every performance.
The Reverend himself, the frontman of the band, lends both a low, worn voice and a skilled guitar hand to the band. Breezy plays the washboard to supplement Senteney’s throbbing drums and, between the two, their songs have a head-bobbing rhythm which brings out the Reverend’s twanging guitar style and rough voice.
The Big Damn Band bring an energetic dynamic to the stage that takes the audience on a journey to the Indiana country blues scene which inspires the band.
Playing at Arlington Arts Centre on August 24, the gig begins at 8pm.
Tickets cost £16 and are available online at arlingtonarts.co.uk, or by calling the box office on 01635 244246.
