Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band - Crescent Ballroom - 11/03/13

Few bands merit having the wall of talent that is Phoenix's Haymarket Squares open for them at Crescent Ballroom. But Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band is one that did when they brought their twangy, country, bluesy sound through downtown Phoenix Sunday night.

"The Rev," Breezy Peyton, and Ben "Big Bird" Russell played a 75-minute set and clearly enjoyed every minute of it. "We loved it. We love this town. This was a lot of fun. I love this venue -- Phoenix is lucky to have a venue this good, and we're lucky to come here, and it was just awesome," Reverend Peyton said after signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. "It's the people -- that's what makes a show better for us. If the crowd is awesome, that makes the show awesome for us."
