The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band (from the album Poor Until Payday available on Family Owned Records)
Preaching a truth that is poked and prodded by a hellhound stomp, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band are here to spread the word. Young or old, a have or a have-not, the title of the recent release from The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is a universal statement with Poor Until Payday. Battering each message with a beat that breaks brimstone down to a dance floor, Poor Until Payday hammers its proclamations to a wall of sound when “It is or It Ain’t” lays out its facts while “Get the Family Together” embraces brethren outside of a funeral gathering, “So Good” testifies to the glory of the band and a DIY guide to life is offered by the preacher man at the microphone with “I Suffer, I Get Tougher”.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band are torch-bearers of classic Country Blues, the good rev a lifelong devotee of front porch Blues, honing his craft studying with the late David ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards, Robert Belfour, and T-Model Ford. Reverend Peyton and the band immersed themselves by following the trail of their sound with a pilgrimage to its birthplace at various crossroads in Clarksdale, Mississippi and the Chess studios in Chicago, Illinois. Putting on their finest duds and dressing up with acoustic Blues, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band puts on “Church Clothes”, shuffles down “Frenchmen Street”, fortifies their resolve with “You Can’t Steal My Sunshine”, and bear down on the beat with heavy steps through “Me and the Devil” as Poor Until Payday makes a wish for good times on the title track and wrangles rhythm in a mighty groove for “Dirty Swerve”.
