Big Damn Band on Facebook – All the cool kids are doing it.

Big Damn Band on Twitter - Follow us for cool pics, updates, and funny stuff.

Big Damn Band on Myspace – Check it out, and come be our friend.

Side One Dummy Records – The new home of Big Damn Band recordings. Other bands on the roster include, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Goldfinger, Dusty Rhodes and the River Band, The Casualties, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and more! Amazing independent record label!

Family Owned Records – This was the label we founded that releases our back catalogue. A corporation cannot produce down-home, raw american roots music. Family Owned Records prides itself on releasing only the most original, real, and important recordings – raw enough for the most jaded punks, foot-stomping enough for grandpa, and sweet enough for your sister… if she isn’t that sweet.

Weber Speakers – Rev. Peyton proudly plays Weber Speakers and Amps.  They built beautiful custom amps for The Rev. that you can see in action at shows.

James Connor - Dear friend, Amazing Artist, and fellow Brown County crazy person!

Flogging Molly – Great pals of ours, and one of the best bands on the planet.

Jon Langford – Genius artist that created the album cover for “The Whole Fam Damnily.”

Brown County, IN – The Rev. Peyton lives with Washboard Breezy in Brown County, IN. Check out this amazing story about Indiana’s least populated county, and check out the sheriff”s log as well. Always entertaining.

Jason Webley – His stage show is entertaining, beautiful, and frightening (in a good way). His song writing is top notch. He comes with just his wit, a car that looks like a tomato, and one accordian. Must be seen to be believed.

The Avett Brothers – Intense “Old-Timey” based trio, with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. If we had one more foot for this metaphor it would be in your butt, because they kick ass.

Legendary Shack Shakers – Col. JD helped The Reverend become a Kentucky Colonel, and they have one of the most powerful live shows in America.

MOFRO – Front Porch Soul. Real funky swamp music from the bayou of Florida.

Mary Prankster – Cult hero and a genius.

Robert Belfour – North Mississippi Legend. Robert is a kind soul with the musical strength of ten men.

Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know – This is probably the funniest show on NPR, and… They invited The Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band to perform live on the show, and really took care of us. Michael really is that funny in person, and the whole crew is awesome. Check it out – it is Nationally Syndicated!

James “Jimbo” Mathus – Former Squirrel Nut Zipper and sideman for Buddy Guy. His music is killer and very diverse, but it is rooted in Mississippi Boogie. I don’t think anyone in the world has as much fun as Jimbo and his Uncle Guy. Be on the look out for some RPBDB recordings floating around from Jimbo’s Delta Recording Studio.

Broke and Hungry Records – Our friend Jeff in St. Louis is trying real hard to bring folks some real deal artists. His releases so far have been great, and his upcoming CD’s look even better..

Jethro Easyfields – Perpetual Touring Acoustic Performer. Rootsy – Reminds us of Dylan, and he blows harp too. The Reverend even did some busking down south with him.

Standard Recording – Real good friends, and real good artists. Some very interesting stuff.

Shelby Kelley - Artist behind many posters, t-shirts, and even two album covers for us!

Hillgrass Bluebilly Entertainment – The finest roots music promoters in the southwest.

Brandy Kayzakian-Rowe – Brilliant photographer with loads of pictures of great bluesmen. There have been some great pictures of the RPBDB taken, including one fine photo with The Reverend and Mr. Robert Belfour.

IMN – Indianapolismusic.net – Get addicted – we are. The people over there have done a lot for The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. Support what they do.

The Blues House Party – The last bastion of Blues Radio in Central Indiana, hosted by the dashing Matt Socey on 90.1FM. Tune in if you find yourself in Indianapolis. Let him know how much you love hearing The RPBDB and old school roots blues!

Bill Steber – Captures the real spirit of the blues in pictures. This guy is a great artist and a Nashville friend of The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band.

David Pelham – Check out some of the awesome photos he took of us in Nashville. You can find them on the picture page of our website! What a talented guy!

Cat Head – Quite possibly the coolest store on earth – In the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Tell ‘em The Rev. Peyton sent ya. They carry RPBDB CD’s and some photo’s featuring The Rev.

Yats – Best Restaurant in the city of Indianapolis. Joe, the owner, is good for great food, and a warm greeting.

XM Satellite Radio – You can now hear The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band on XM Radio. Send ‘em an email and let ‘em know you like that.

The Loop Master – The Rev. never uses loops, but he asked The Loop-Master to build a special A/B/C pedal (That is a switcher pedal so that he can change between guitars easily on stage), so that his stage set-up would be ready for two really large benefit shows. Not only was the pedal here in record time, but it works like a charm… No buzz, no sound interference, only the sound of my vintage guitars. $10,000 dollars later, the charity shows were a huge success, and The Loop-Master is my hero.
