The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band may technically only be comprised of three people, but their name is no misnomer. Although the family-based act—which is comprised of fingerstyle guitarist Reverend Peyton, his wife and washboard player Breezy Peyton and drummer/brother Jayme Peyton—have only been around for three years, in that time period these country-blues aficionados from rural Indiana have played more than 250 shows annually and logged more miles on their van than most acts who have been around for a decade. “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,” the Reverend himself answers when asked what a typical Big Damn Band performance is like, “we’ll play with anyone, really.” While many bands in the country and traditional genres like to talk about their authenticity, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band have proved it by sacrificing everything in order to make the group a success. “We sold everything we owned in a big yard sale and just hit the road,” Peyton explains in his deep Hoosier drawl when asked how the band got rolling. “We started out doing just local stuff, then it started growing before we knew it, we’d sold five thousand copies of our demo record just out of our van,” he continues. “Then we made [2006’s] Big Damn Nation and thought, ‘Hell, let’s just do it and start traveling and see what happens’… and it’s been working. It’s a hard way to go, but I think that in this day and age it’s the way you gotta get your music out to people. Radio ain’t going to be playing us, you know what I mean?”
