Some people think there’s a bassist in the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. Nope, that’s just Peyton’s right thumb chugging out bass lines on his guitar while playing melodies or soloing. Taking cues from bluesmen like Charley Patton, Robert Johnson and Furry Lewis, the trio — Peyton and his wife, “Washboard” Breezy, and drummer Max Senteney — plays high-octane front-porch music that’s as infectious as it is danceable. This year’s Poor Until Payday, recorded live in a studio with vintage analog equipment, captures a good deal of the band’s frenzied stage energy, but seeing Peyton and company live is an entirely different experience. Over the past dozen years (at 200-plus gigs a year), the group’s live shows have gotten increasingly better, and Peyton’s guitar playing has improved, too — even though he was damn good from the get-go.
