Rev Peytons Big Damn Band

Touring is a family thing for them. The Reverend on the driver’s seat, his wife “Washboard” Breezy next to him and brother Jayme in the back of the van. That is how they cruise through Vienna, telling stories and making nasty jokes while we direct them to the location of the video shoot. The mood is relaxed and fun, although only a few days before most of their personal belongings were stolen out of their van during a show in London. At least the Reverend’s ancient guitars weren’t touched. Together with Breezy’s characteristic washboard percussion, Jayme’s improvised drums and the Reverend’s propulsive voice, these vintage guitars shape the agitating, restless blues sound that makes crowds go wild everywhere. The energy comes across, no matter whether they perform on stage or play two recent songs (“Persimmon Song” and “The Creek’s Are All Bad” from the album “The Whole Fam Damnily”) standing knee-deep within purple meadow flowers in some urban no man’s land.
