The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and The Supersuckers, two of the hardest working bands in the land, are joining forces for the Distinguished Delinquents co-headlining tour that kicks off October 7th in Englewood, CO. The special guest on all of the dates will be Jesse Dayton. The dates below are the initial dates of the tour with more dates to be announced.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band bridges genres and eras with an intensity and effortlessness few contemporary artists possess. Buoyed by the Rev’s supercharged six-string virtuosity — a unique style of fingerpicking inspired by his Delta blues heroes, but taken to new, original heights. The Big Damn Band — which includes Breezy Peyton on washboard and Max Senteney on drums has always been strong on authenticity, blending blues, ragtime, folk, country and other traditional styles with the sleek modern energy of do-it-yourself, homespun, punk-fueled rock. Constant touring lead the band to be awarded “Best Band of the Warped Tour” and to the stages of famed festivals such as Austin City Limits, Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, WOMAD, Telluride, Cambridge Folk, All Good, King Biscuit and DelFest, among many other prestigious gigs. The band’s latest record, So Delicious, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart and #3 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart and their songs have earned placements in the hit Showtime series Shameless. www.bigdamnband.com
