Reverend Peyten’s Big Damn Band, after twelve years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the Big Damn Band is known for its spirited live shows. Rev. Peyton delivers guitar pyrotechnics the old-fashioned way — ten fingers, a six string, and an amp cranked at full tilt. In the country blues style, he plays the bass with his thumb, while picking the lead with his fingers at the same time. Beside him on stage are his wife, “Washboard” Breezy Peyton playing with all the nuance and percussive power of a New Orleans drum line, and keeping the train moving is Max Senteney on a lean drum kit including a 5 gallon maple syrup bucket. Together they play Peyton’s wildman country blues that’s as much ZZ Top as it is Bukka White.
