Rev. Peyton sets his best friend on fire, and all Hell breaks loose behind Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band as they perform “We Deserve a Happy Ending” on their own front porch in the new video from their new release “Front Porch Sessions.” PLEASE SHARE AND TAG YOUR PALS IN THE COMMENTS!

"We researched these dangerous hollywood style stunts and my best friend Jim Connor volunteered to let me set him on fire inside my house,” says Rev. Peyton. All of these people, animals, and machinery were all packed inside of Rev. and Breezy’s tiny cabin in the Brown County Hills. “These folks are just our friends and family,” Rev. Peyton says. “We are lucky to be surrounded by hillbillies, performers, artists, daredevils, and adventurers.” With almost no budget, this video is ONE continuous camera shot and was captured by Rev’s good pal and amazing photographer Tyler Zoller in ONE take. It is all DIY, but all the proper precautions were taken. Rev. urges people not to try this at home, especially if you live in a wood house.
Washboard Breezy, Rev. Peyton’s wife and band member, says, “The song is stripped down, Maxwell Senteney plays a suitcase just like on the record, but it sounds huge.” “It’s all about the vocals,” Rev. Peyton says. “Max and Breezy make the song for me.”
From livestock to Harley motorcycles, from live shoot outs to a man fully engulfed in flames they are all packed into Rev. and Breezy’s tiny log cabin shack.
Looking forward to returning here next weekend! New Zealand and Australia, we will see you soon!
We were given an official Mäori welcome ceremony, a Pöwhiri. This amazing warrior presented the taiaha spear, did an amazing dance, and then we touched forehead...s and noses a greeting called a hongi. It was amazing. We have been blessed twice before by indigenous shamans, but this was extra special. The Mäori people are amazing. Thank you for welcoming us. We sure feel welcome. #bigdamnband #revpeyton #reverendpeyton #newzealand #maori #hongi #splorefestival SEE MORE AT REV'S INSTAGRAM @bigdamnband
This may just be the best resonator guitar I have ever played. It was custom built for me by my friends at National Reso Phonic Guitars. I can’t put it down. It's the Reverend Peyton Rustaway, and it's a big bad brass beast. Thanks fellas. The pickup in it is custom by my friend Bryan Fleming. My new overalls are also the best overalls I've ever worn. Brand new design by my pal at Zace Denim. I am humbled by the support I get from some of the best small but mighty American companies in existence. I'm gonna post more pics, and I think some videos of this beast guitar will be coming soon too. I'm floored!
