Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

By Matt Clevenger

Part Gogol Bordello and part Southern Culture on the Skids, the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band will bring their unique mix of high-intensity swing, rockabilly, country and blues to Dayton’s Canal Street Tavern on Wednesday, December 1.

The Brown County, Indiana-based trio is known for catchy, kitschy songs like “Your Cousin’s on Cops” and “Mama’s Fried Potatoes,” and features Reverend Peyton (a fully-commissioned Kentucky Colonel) on slide guitar and vocals, his wife “Washboard” Breezy Peyton on washboard and vocals, and Aaron “Cuz” Persinger on drums and five- gallon buckets. Vans Warped Tour veterans, the group shares a record label with the Casualties, and has toured with artists ranging from Susan Tedeschi to Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello and Clutch.

Doors open at 8 p.m. for the Canal Street Tavern show, which also features opening act Paleface & Mo. More information on the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band can be found online at  HYPERLINK “” For ticket information, please call (937) 461-9343 or visit
