Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is happy to announce banjo enthusiast and multi-instrumentalist Dom Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops) and rockabilly sensation Dex Romweber Duo as the support for their upcoming Big Damn Roots Revolution Tour, kicking off February 19 in Nashville.

With a reputation for their incendiary live shows, it seemed only natural for the Big Damn Band to hit the road again in support of Between the Ditches, their latest album. But this time, The Rev, Breezy & Ben will unleash their ferocious roots/blues explosion to the masses alongside some of their favorite artists for what is sure to be an unforgettably evening of roots music. Conceptualized by none other than the Reverend Peyton himself, The Big Damn Roots Revolution Tour is a musical event that will showcase today’s top roots artists in a whole new light.

As a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and now a solo troubadour, Dom Flemons has traveled the world impressing audiences from Ireland, England, Scotland, Holland and more with his outrageous performance style. “I always try to keep the audience guessing,” Dom says, “it makes the performance more interesting.” And for a quarter century, Dex Romweber has brandished an idiomatic blend of surf, proto-rockabilly, garage, and dark and vengeful blues; first with the legendary Flat Duo Jets and now with his sister Sara on drums in the Dex Romweber Duo. The tour comes just in time for the release of the band’s fantastic new albumImages 13 (out 3/18) on Bloodshot Records.
