The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s live show is an experience to behold. The band is in the midst of an extended tour that will not only take them throughout the states but also over to the UK for a couple of shows.

This is not the first time The Bloody Jug Band has shared a stage with the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. “Not only was the band a huge inspiration to me personally in the years before there was a Bloody Jug Band, but we’ve also been blessed to play with them again and again throughout the years,” said Cragmire Peace of The Bloody Jug Band. “It’s great to reconnect, share stories and also be able to look back and see how far we’ve come in that time. In addition to that, I’d say sharing the stage and an evening of performing with them and the Six Time Losers is also a reward in and of itself. We all put on super high energy shows, so to be able to come together for an insane night of Americana music is a rare treat.”

For music fans unfamiliar with The Bloody Jug Band (BJB), Cragmire Peace was asked to describe the band’s music. “You know, after 5 years together this question hasn’t gotten any easier to answer. I’d say the best way to describe the BJB is a mixture of old traditional instruments that came out of the backyard Jug Bands of the 1930’s, mixed with more modern Americana, folk and rock sensibilities, as well as darker roots based music. We call our strange brew ‘swamp noir’, but ‘swamp rock’ or ‘jug rock’ also seems to fit the bill these days.”

Cragmire Peace was also asked why music fans should choose this show to attend. “It’ll be an insane night of foot stompin, hand clappin, beer drinkin music that you rarely see in these parts. All three acts, Six Time Losers, BJB and Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, are strong in their own respect, but mixed together it’ll certainly be a night to remember. I have a feeling BackBooth will have a hard time containing all the amazing energy being transmitted by the acts. We may have to cut a hole in the roof just to let it all out. Be There!”

The BackBooth is located at 37 W. Pine St., in downtown Orlando. Tickets for the show are available from the bands for $10 in advance. If there are any tickets left, they’ll be $12 at the door.
