LangLab, in conjunction with Finncade Shows, is proud to bring to South Bend for the first time Side One Dummy Records recording artists and Indiana's own Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band to LangLab. Their nationally established, incendiary live show is going to be a treat and we can't wait to present it at LangLab! Special guests to be announced very soon!
Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
Roaring 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. Locked in with an audience, the band create their own community and welcome 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.
In 2009, they toured opening for Clutch, an extensive headlining tour of Europe and began their relationship with the Van's Warped Tour, playing 12 dates in 2009 on the Kevin Says stage. They were on the entire 2010 Van's Warped Tour on the Alternative Press stage and they received the Best Band of Warped Tour award, voted by the crew, bands, and promoters. They've also toured with Flogging Molly, Rev. Horton Heat, Derek Trucks and Mofro just to name a few.
This band is fun sure, a lot of fun, but they are for real. From virtuoso musicianship to great songwriting, Between The Ditches has got it all. All from a little Brown County, Indiana band that's got the nerve (and the right) to call themselves, Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band!
We can't tell you how excited we are to bring this event to South Bend. Come and invite your friends! Doors open at 7:30pm with an 8:00pm start time. $10 cover. All ages welcome!
