Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band / Rosco Bandana
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band comes roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills playing a brand of Americana and delta blues combined with hillbilly fervor and musical precision sharp as razor wire. This trio is a force to be reckoned with.
The growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for their 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. An ironclad work ethic keeps them on the road 250 dates a year, playing for the people with hurricane force. Locked in with an audience, the band created its own community and welcomed the crowd into it, transporting them away from their troubles to joyous release, the way great musicians have done for centuries. The Rev. J. Peyton, his wife Breezy, and distant cousin Aaron “Cuz” Persinger, are a living, breathing embodiment of the traditions and hard work ethic native to their Brown County, Indiana home. Their new album Between the Ditches is a chronicle of this lifestyle.
Rosco Bandana is a Gulfport-based band whose act includes blues/Americana style music blended with modern folk and a hint of Gypsy fanfare. This newly formed band has been shaking up the local music scene with its energetic live performances.
