Standing at the crossroads of twang and tremolo, Rich Layton and The Troublemakers play high-octane honky tonk music, harmonica fueled and swampified. It’s the sound of an East Texas roadhouse where the crowds are a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll – and out on the dance floor all night long!
Their second release, “Tough Town” is primed and ready for take-off, and the cd release party will be the place. Saturday April 16th 6pm. At the Secret Society Ballroom, 116 Northeast Russell St. portland OR 503-493-3600
Portland is VERY blessed to have landed this one-of-a-kind original band.
Here’s the title track attached to get the blood flowing…rough,tough, chewy and very tasty!

Great article, neat blog style, stick to the good work
That was a great show! They Tmakers alternated sets w/ Ron Rogers and his band. Rich Layton set it up in 30 minute incremental sets. Which was a great idea.
Both bands were at the top of their game.
The house was almost full. There were people spilling over from the restaurant & bar next door who seemed to be magnetically attracted by the sound and excitement of it all.
Wow!!! Outstanding time! Thanks to everyone who supports The Twang/Tremelo/Trouble Movement!
Hey Ty, you should’ve stuck around for the second set of The Troublemakers, even better than the first!! Steve Kerin and Donna Lynn Davis sitting in was absolutely terrific!! This was a great night of outstanding music and performances!
