The following night, the band heads to Indianapolis to play at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art.
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is known for their incendiary live shows promises to bring the heat – with a ferocious blues explosion. Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills, the band plays a brand of Americana and Blues music that stands alone. The band’s new album, “Between The Ditches,” chronicles their Indiana roots. The Rev. J. Peyton, his wife Breezy and distant cousin Aaron “Cuz” Persinger, who make up the trio, are a living breathing embodiment of the traditions and hard work ethic native to their Brown County, Ind., home.
