Firehouse Sessions – The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

Play

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band had the whole WFHB building shaking with their foot stomping country blues rave up. Playing three songs off their brand new album “So Delicious” they took us from the happy (Pot Roast and Kisses) to the angry (Scream At the Night) to the boastful and blistering (Front Porch Trained). These Brown County ambassadors of hot licks and ear to ear smiles gave us the perfect primer not only for the new album, but also the six month long world tour they’re about to embark on.
