REVEREND PEYTON'S BIG DAMN BAND

FACEBOOK | WEBSITE

2019 BMA Award Nominee The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band are the greatest country-blues band in the world. They are led by Reverend Peyton, who most consider to be the premier finger picker playing today. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy, country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. Now The Big Damn Band is back with an explosive new record and world tour. Reverend Peyton's guitar work on the new record Poor Until Payday is phenomenal and howls the blues. Poor Until Payday is a bluesy ode to the blue collar - working class and it delvers in spades!

BOBBY THOMPSON

FACEBOOK | WEBSITE

It’s been said that creativity takes courage, and self-expression is a way to show the world your inner soul. With a new group of songs and a new full-length album in the works, Bobby has let down his guard, and become more than the instrumentalist he gained a reputation for. He recently won a WAMMIE (Washington Area Music Association) award for 2018 best blues album, and although there are strong overtones of the blues in his writing, he sees himself essentially as a folk-blues singer-songwriter, sometimes solo, and sometimes with a little amp, and a band. He will as easily spend an evening entertaining a small listening room with his acoustic guitars and his songs, and the next night, he will have the dance floor packed grooving to the same songs with his band.

“I want to carry on the tradition, of blues and folk music, without mimicking, but with solid interpretation and writing. People like Taj Mahal, John Hammond Jr., and Mississippi John Hurt are top-shelf in my vinyl catalog. Lightnin' Hopkins and Townes Van Zandt were friends. Bob Dylan sang blues songs. Blues music and folk music are close relatives. That's the tradition I want to continue in with my songwriting and performances.”, Thompson states.

He is currently working on his 7th full-length album, with a promotional EP release in June, followed by east coast tour dates. Known for rarely slowing down, he’s fronted bands like Blueheart Revivial and Revelator Hill, and been a sideman for artists such as Justin Jones (930 Club Records), Laura Tsaggaris, and he once even toured with SOJA for three months back in 2009. He’s taken all he has learned, playing an array of musical styles, and packaged them into who is he is today: a quintessential rock’n roll performer, that doubles as acoustic singer-songwriter, easily balancing between the two.
