Reverend Peytons Big Damn Band - photo by Birch MillerRoaring out of the southern Indiana foothills comes Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band playing a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone – Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire – best know, this trio is a force to be reckoned with. The growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for his country home and family and an uncanny ability to breathe new life into old forms of music give them a pedigree many Americana acts would kill for and an ironclad work ethic keeps them on the road 250 dates a year, playing for the people with hurricane force.

The Rev. J. Peyton, his wife Breezy and Ben “Bird Dog” Bussell are known for their incendiary shows and celebrating their most recent release, Between The Ditches, they’ll be heading to Portland with just the right place to put forth their music at Dante’s on Saturday, July 26th. Tickets are $10.00 and available in advance at Dante’s is located at 350 W Burnside St. Showtime is 8:00 pm. 21 and over only.
