Reverend Peyton – guitar, lead vocals, and principal songwriter
On stage he plays a rusty 1930 steel-bodied National guitar, a 1934 wood-bodied National Trojan Resonator guitar and a 1994 reproduction of a 1929 Gibson acoustic. He has recently added a three-string cigar box guitar to his stage collection. Peyton uses no outboard gear other than a three input switch box between his guitars and the amplifier. He is a noted proponent of fingerstyle guitar, playing the bass line of songs with his thumb while simultaneously playing the melody, the melody of a different song or a round with his fingers.
"Washboard" Breezy "The Miss Elizabeth of Country Blues" Peyton – washboard
She plays the washboard using work gloves to which thimbles have been attached. Her aggressive playing style have earned her the reputation as being "arguably the finest percussion player around", and setting fire to her instrument on stage has become a hallmark of the band's reputation for high energy live shows. The washboards used on stage are available for sale at the merchandise table at their concerts.
Max Senteney – drums
He plays a small drum kit, augmented with a five-gallon plastic bucket fitted with drum hardware. The band claims they are the only rock band with a bucket endorsement deal.
