95bFM’s Border Radio & The Tuning Fork Presents:
The Return Of

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

Live and direct from Beanblossom, Indiana, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band return to Auckland to deliver a super fun night of punk-fuelled, ragtime, folk, rural blues at The Tuning Fork on Friday 23 February 2018.

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s debut NZ tour in 2016 won over audiences with the exceptional slide guitar skills of the Rev himself along with his wife, “Washboard” Breezy Peyton’s rhythmic washboard strumming accompanied by some boot stompin’ drums.  Music reviewer Marty Duda reported, “It was clear from the way Peyton spoke about his custom-made instruments and his own songs that the man has a deep love for what he is doing. By the end of the 15-song show, so did his audience”.

The Rev. Peyton is very much looking forward to returning to Aotearoa, saying “Last time we were in New Zealand, we were welcomed with a M?ori haka, we fished, we swam in the clear blue water, and we made amazing friends. It’s going to be tough to beat that first tour, but we are so excited and we are going to try”.

The Big Damn Band has won a large and loyal fan base the world over, thanks to their great sense of humour, high-energy showmanship along with nine acclaimed albums and tireless touring efforts including all of the big festivals; SXSW, Glastonbury, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, High Sierra, and Warped Tour. With nearly 6 million combined views of the Rev playing his Shotgun Guitar (true story), there is much to learn about this band!
