I have said over and over how I LOVE Vintage Vinyl, they do everything right for a record store. They are a real independent store, which is more and more rare in todays world. I always buy my new cds from there, but what sweetens the deal is when the band shows up to throw a record store party, and what better band to do this than the Big Damn Band.
With their new album ” Between The Ditches ” being released on 08/07/12 and debuting on the Itunes at #1. To help promote the new release The Big Damn Band was doing a week of free shows and festivals. We were blessed enough that they picked Vintage Vinyl for the venue for their St. Louis show. Local brewer Schlafly Beer provided a few cases of cold hometown beer for the music fans of age in attendance.
Day of the show, I took my girlfriend to famous Blueberry Hill which is a block down the street. Once a month Chuck Berry still plays shows in the 300 capacity venue in its basement. After some Chicken Fingers, and famous Cheeseburgers, we strolled down Delmar and arrived at Vintage Vinyl.
There was already a good crowd there watching the sound check. A wide variety of people filled the aisles enjoying their cold, tasty beverages while browsing the cd racks.
Reverend Peyton came out and stole everyone’s attention, he is a true master of the guitar. He can talk with his guitar, he can sing with his guitar and everytime I see him, he is better than the last time. He is something to watch, thats why so many bands jump at the chance to play and work with him.
Washboard Breezy was rocking the washboard and cracking jokes between songs. In between songs a fan yelled out for a older song. In which Breezy replied “feel free to get a refund, only new songs today”.
Aaron ” Cuz ” Persinger was on the drums, helping sing back up for some songs. Cuz plays with a lot of passion, and makes each show fun to watch. The 30 minute performance was just enough to leave you wanting more. Good news for Big Damn fans is they are coming back to the Firebird in Sept.
