Reverend Peyton is not your average cleric. Everyone knows him as "the Reverend" or simply "Rev," and his music is his gospel. (Update
: Also, he's a for-real reverend. Who knew?)
Peyton rotates among a variety of guitars while his wife, Breezy, plays a washboard, and Ben Bussell pounds away on a drum kit that includes an overturned 5-gallon plastic bucket. Put that way, the band may sound a little modest, but together they deliver an old-fashioned country-blues romp that would get even the quietest church mouse dancing.
Here's a funny little video from the band:
