Sunny Friday May 24th at Scamp!

Not only was Friday my birthday at Scamp, but it was the day I got to interview on of my favorite bands, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band!

First I caught their set at 12pm at the Starshine stage. They played several of my favorite songs such as “Big Blue ‘72”, “Devils Look Like Angels”, “Sure Feels Like Rain”, “Something for Nothing” and several others off of their new album that came out in 2012, Between the Ditches. Rev who plays guitar in the band demonstrated to the audience the style of music that he plays which is called finger picking style. It’s a style that not that many people play now days and its where you play the bass part of a song while playing the guitar part at the same time on one guitar! His technique is quite a site to see! If you missed their set, they play shows over 250 days out of the year, so I’m sure you’ll catch them in your hometown. Overall, they were a fantastic boot stompin’ good ‘ol time. Since I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to interview them, I decided to go to their autograph signing in the merchandise tent and had a nice conversation with them to show them my appreciation for what they do. Here’s a pic from visiting with them in the merch tent…

Then I headed back to my camp and got a text that they wanted to do an interview! Once I saw them again behind the Starshine stage, I just said “it’s me again!” (since I had just talked to them). We went into one of the backstage trailers for the interview, click here to watch!

And here’s a pic of myself with them pointing at my Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band patch on my vest!

After the amazing interview, I caught up with my friends and we caught the Wailers, Medeski Martin & Wood, and Keller Williams with More Than A Little.

Here’s a lovely pic of my friends in front of someone’s sexy bus/trailer on our way to the Wailers. It really brought out the ANIMAL in them! hah, get it, get it. I’m sure everyone else saw this sexy bus on the way to the Sunshine Stage.


Then we got some dinner and headed out for Umphrey’s, EOTO, STS9 and a little of the red barn set of moe. Friday was the such an AMAZING day, not only was the only beautiful day for weather, but I got to interview one of my favorite band on my birthday!!

Your gurl,
