About Rich Layton and the Troublemakers

Rich Layton and the Troublemakers

Around the world, New Year's Eve is known as "Amateur Night." Here's your chance to up your game by getting in a little practice partying the night before.

Break in your boogie shoes with some roadhouse rock 'n roll from Rich Layton and the Troublemakers!

Rich Layton & The Troublemakers are keepers of the flame for American roots music. It's high octane swamp rock, country, rockabilly and the honky tonk blues echoing from an East Texas roadhouse. The band's hard driving performances take audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich's Gulf Coast original weave seamlessly into the mix with tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified.

The band has a signature sound that sits on the Americana radio dial right alongside roots rock artists like J.D. McPherson, Buddy Miller and Dave & Phil Alvin. With a reputation for its high energy stagecraft, RLTM has played festivals throughout the NW, including multiple appearances at the Safewary Waterfront BlueFest, and opened for such legendary acts as The Blasters, Buckwheat Zydeco and Junior Brown. Rich himself is a regular guest with old friends Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams and Dale Watson whenever their tours come through the NW.
