“An album that continues to pop up in our music rotation is the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s 2010 album, The Wages. The band as a whole, as well as this particular album, has meant a lot to us. After first seeing Rev. Peyton open for Flogging Molly at House of Blues many years back, I was inspired to pick up the washboard and start playing around with it locally. That decision ultimately led to the creation of the Bloody Jug Band; it was a humbling experience when, one year after our first live gig, we opened for Rev. Peyton as they toured to support The Wages. So, a great damn band that continues to inspire us, and a CD that tells the tale of many a downtrodden soul.”
(Local “swamp-noir” group the Bloody Jug Band plays the Cracker Swamp Stomp for Wildlife Education at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Will’s Pub and Wally’s on Mills Ave. Proceeds go to the Hands on Wildlife not-for-profit organization. Admission is $5 per venue.)
