Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band Rocks the 930 Club

It was all ages at the Nightclub 9:30 Saturday May 14th as the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band rocked the venue opening for the Reverend Horton Heat. The little man was so excited to see his second concert with the RPBDB, perhaps the most unique and entertaining trios touring today. Unique in that the Cuz plays a drum kit that includes a 5-gallon bucket; Ms. Breezy keeps the rhythm on the washboard, and the Reverend holds down the bass and lead guitars on the same acoustic guitar. Very quickly into the evening the Rev tutored those unfamiliar with the band on his unique playing style by playing Yankee Doodle with the top two bass chords and Dixie on the bottom chords - simultaneously. Now that's talent. Besides this showing off, the band played mostly from The Wages and The Whole Fam Damnily. The former is their latest and is a great CD; we heard Clap Your Hands; Sure Feels Like Rain, Two Bottles Of Wine, Lick Creek Road, & Everything's Raising. From the latter we heard Mama's Fried Potatoes and Your Cousin's On Cops. The next chance we will get to see the band is at FloydFest, July 28-31st where they will be performing two days. A video of Mama's Fried Potatoes is available at MyJoogTV. We will get better video at that festival, for certain.
