The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is a three-piece American country blues band from Brown County, Indiana, consisting of Reverend Josh Peyton on vocals and guitar, his wife Breezy Peyton on washboard and vocals, and Max Senteney on drums. Their music combines traditional blues and country styles with modern elements, and is known for its raw energy and high level of musicianship. The band has released several albums and toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe.
“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
“With his wife, Breezy, serving as a one-woman amen corner, and Max laying down the floppy-boot-stomp drums behind Peyton’s spiky, waspish National steel slide guitar on tracks like “Something for Nothing”, the result is a peculiarly infectious blues crusade, touching on themes of money, morality and social responsibility.” – The Independent (UK)
