REVEREND PEYTON SHOWCASES SONGS FROM THE PORCH Charismatic roots preacher breaks it down on career-defining The Front Porch Sessions, slated for March 10, 2017 release
BROWN COUNTY, Ind. -- Southern Indiana-bred singer-guitarist Reverend Peyton is the bigger- than-life frontman of Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David "Honeyboy" Edwards. That passionate inspiration has made Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band America's foremost country blues outfit and fuels the Rev's new release, The Front Porch Sessions. Peyton's dazzling guitar mastery is equaled here by his knack for vivid, emotionally impactful songwriting, and his originals are matched in their authenticity by the deeply felt vintage blues tunes that he covers. The album showcases the Rev's irrepressible personality while echoing the enduring spirit of such acoustic blues icons as Charlie Patton, Blind Willie Johnson, Bukka White and Furry Lewis, whose "When My Baby Left Me" receives a memorable reading. The Front Porch Sessions will be released March 10, 2017 on Family Owned Records/Thirty Tigers. "It started as a literal whim on my part, but it turned into something really special," Reverend Peyton says of this new collection. "I wanted it to feel like you're on my front porch. You can almost hear the wood creaking." The Front Porch Sessions maintains a potent level of intensity throughout, from the upbeat optimism of the album-opener "We Deserve a Happy Ending" to the blunt slice-of- life rural reality of "One More Thing" to the rollicking, playful swagger of "Shakey Shirley," "One Bad Shoe" and "Cornbread and Butterbeans." Meanwhile, the instrumentals "It's All Night Long" and "Flying Squirrels" demonstrate the Rev's nimble, imaginative guitar work.
A seated acoustic evening with the Trashcan Sinatras.
The three founding members of the band, Frank, Paul & John, will be playing 2 sets of songs reflecting all the periods of their 30 year career. Some songs never played before, some never to be played again.
As John from the band says
" "Most of our songs are written with acoustic guitars and voices in quiet, solitary rooms, so it will be nervy but exciting to bring that sound out of the backroom and into the light,"
Come along early as there is no support. Grab yourself a good seat and see what songs the evening brings...

Originally formed in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced hardcore punk band called Virulence, FU MANCHU has since become one of hard rock's most celebrated names. The band released its first single "Kept Between Trees" in 1990 and in the years following, helped give rise to a celebrated style of heavy music tagged "stoner rock" alongside peers such as Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep. Since its inception, the quartet has built itself a fanatical army of loyal enthusiasts all drawn to the group's ridiculously catchy, unpretentious music, guitar-driven sound and carefree lyrics centered on "old muscle cars, choppers, vans, skateboarding and science fiction." Over their career, the band has released 11 albums and has performed to sold out audiences all over the world.
"a transcendent distillation of Seventies rock heaviness and Eighties punk aggression...what Black Sabbath would sound like with suntans and a fleet of dune buggies at their disposal...the ultimate desert-rock " - ROLLING STONE
"stoner-rock icons... unyielding, heavy-rock" - SPIN
"melodic smoke-soaked bluesy-metal" - THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Invoking the legendary thunder of Blue Cheer as well as the clanging cowbell boogie of Mountain, this quartet creates a near-perfect facsimile of circa-'71 heavy rock. " - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"flawless...(a) Frankenstein monster from the discarded body parts of Black Sabbath and less obvious influences such as ZZ Top, Devo and the Cars." - MTV NEWS
"The amped-up sounds of four asphalt-tearin', Vans-wearin' dudes engrossed in their perpetual search for the perfect wave and the perfect riff. The music of FU MANCHU may be loud and unruly enough to send your average pop geek ducking for cover behind a stack of Emitt Rhodes LPs, but it's also as purely Californian as anything Brian Wilson ever recorded. " - LA WEEKLY
"In the great scheme of things, FU MANCHU stands proud in the decades-old tradition of cock-rock, a lineage which includes the likes of Grand Funk Railroad, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Masters Of Reality, Quicksand, ad infinitum...a stiff dose of full-on hedonism to wash away the bad taste of bland alternative bands." - THE ONION
