But this time, The Rev, Breezy &amp; Cuz will unleash their blues explosion to the masses alongside some of their favorite artists. </p> <p>Coming along for the ride are Jimbo Mathus, best known for his work with the swing revival band Squirrel Nut Zippers and blues legend Buddy Guy, as well as Grammy award-winning guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart. The tour kicks off in March; then you can catch the Rev in several appearances at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, before continuing the tour throughout the summer.</p> <p>Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band plays a brand of Americana and blues that stands alone - Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire. Their new album, <em>Between The Ditches</em>, is a chronicle of this lifestyle. Since it arrived in August, it has been received with enthusiasm debuting at No. 1 on the iTunes Blues chart in its first week. </p> <p>For more info, check out the band's <a href="http://www.bigdamnband.com">website</a> and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/bigdamnband">Facebook page</a>.</p> <p><strong>Big Damn Blues Revolution dates:</strong></p> <p>Wed Mar 6 Columbia, MO Blue Note<br /> Thu Mar 7 St. Louis, MO Old Rock House<br /> Fri Mar 8 Kansas City, MO Knuckleheads<br /> Sat Mar 9 Little Rock, AR Sticky Fingers<br /> Tue Mar 12 Austin, TX The Blackheart SXSW<br /> Wed Mar 13 Austin, TX Club Deville SXSW<br /> Thu Mar 14 Ft.
