"We come from the same tradition as Charley Patton and Furry Lewis," says the Reverend.

Santa Fe, New Mexico is in for a treat when the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band hits the stage at the Santa Fe Sol Stage and Grill from 8 – 10:30 p.m., Friday, November 16, 2012. Known by fans for delivering a unique brand and style of music the band covers a lot of ground including punk rock, old style country-blues and popping indie rock that just brings down the house. This event is featured on Santa Fe’s premier on-line visitor guide SantaFe.com.
The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band—embraced equally by traditional country-blues, indie rock, and punk audiences—plays an infectious, updated version of the sound created by country blues legends Son House and Furry Lewis. "We end up playing with a lot of punk rock bands and any kind of roots acts from bluegrass to alt-country to rockabilly to you name it. We'll play with anyone, really," says frontman Reverend Peyton in his deep Hoosier drawl.
Formed in rural Indiana, the band's 2006 debut impressed Irish rock act Flogging Molly so much that the band invited them out on the road. "They said that they do to Celtic roots music the same thing that we do to old country blues: Write songs about things that are happening now and people we know," whether it's a number about being too poor to afford health insurance of just missing Mama Peyton's fried potatoes. The band's live shows are a decidedly raucous experience. "We come from the same tradition as Charley Patton and Furry Lewis," says the Reverend. "Patton was playing with his teeth and behind his head in 1930; now people say that's punk rock, but they've been doing that for a hundred years.... Country blues was the first punk rock, if you ask me." The band's latest disc is ‘Between The Ditches’.
