The Big Damn Blues Revolution Tour feat. The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Jimbo Mathus and Alvin Youngblood HartPop/Rock
The only thing that’s outsized about Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is the sound made by the gonzo, slide-playing frontman, the bucket-pounding drummer and the golf-gloved washboard player; that’s the entire lineup. They’re country-blues eccentrics whose take on the music emphasizes backwoods primitiveness. But Rev. Peyton’s burly, braying delivery can’t hide the fact that he also comes up with some genuinely tuneful licks. The whole thing’s meant to make audiences lose their shit, as portrayed in the circus-meets-barn-dance video for their song “Clap Your Hands.” Joining them on this tour are fellow country-bluesmen Jimbo Mathus and Alvin Youngblood Hart, who are sometime band members in the South Memphis String Band. Mathus’ eclectic showmanship dates back to the ’90s surprise-hit swing outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. But his new album, White Buffalo, is rich in myth and roots-rock moxie.
