The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band returns to Roanoke on Friday, rolling with the success of what frontman Joshua Peyton says is the band’s best album yet.
That disc, “Between The Ditches” (Side One Dummy), is also the band’s most commercially successful release. The record, which came out on Aug. 7, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard blues albums chart, right behind Bonnie Raitt’s latest, “Slipstream,” which has ruled that chart for weeks.
