The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band released Poor Until Payday, the band’s ninth studio album, last fall, and the trio has been on the road ever since. The Reverend and his bandmates perform at The Hamilton Live on Sunday, July 21, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!

After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton — the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country — has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings out there. This following ate up the band’s latest offering, Poor Until Payday, (the second on their own Family Owned Records label through hip Nashville indie Thirty Tigers), a country blues record that was made the right way — two feet on the ground and both hands getting dirty.

With all the power of a freight train, the Big Damn Band is known for its live shows. Rev. Peyton delivers guitar pyrotechnics the old fashioned way — 10 fingers, a 6-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. When he lifts the guitar behind his head to play there’s nothing but skill and 16-gauge nickel strings to make the sounds coming out of the speakers.

Beside him on stage are just two other people. 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.
