Best Local Roots Artists

Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band

They came awfully darn close to stealing the title of best all-around local music act from Jennie DeVoe this year, perhaps because of that sold-out performance at the NUVO 20th Anniversary Party last March, or perhaps because of that excellent new CD they just released. Whatever the impetus, lots of are liking this band's brand of solid music via a '30s-era resonator guitar and some quick fingers to play both treble and bass; not to mention Washboard Breezy using an instrument of women's work for a decidedly unfeminine use and Jayme maintaining a pounding attack on the set and marching bass drum.
