Moving away from the jazz comfort zone for a bit Dance Songs For Hard Times lets you off the leash and whips into riotous blues at the rollicking end of the spectrum. Nail yourself down, if you even can, to listen. Rev. Peyton’s lead guitar and vocals are convincing while his wife Washboard Breezy is very lively and just as key to the tidal flow of it all. Drummer, percussionist and vocalist Max Senteney is dutiful in tow, solid as a rock.
Very boisterous stuff and refreshing in this with open-tuned slide guitar part of the fabric and a fiery maelstrom of energy and exuberance suitably accessorising. Currently riding high in the UK jazz and blues chart – they all completely let rip. On Family Owned
