Uncle B & Auntie E & J-DOGGarcia Birthday BandRich Layton and the Troublemakers
Rich Layton & The Troublemakers are keepers of the flame for American roots rock, music that blurs the lines between vintage country, rock and blues. With comparisons to such artists as Marty Stuart, Dave Alvin and Sturgill Simpson, the band takes audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich's original songs thread seamlessly into the mix, weaving his Gulf Coast roots through tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified. Together a decade now, the band has released two albums, and performs at festivals and events throughout the NW, including the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival. Each summer, Rich joins Lyle Lovett as a special guest when The Large Band comes to town. Rich also has played on Portland tour stops by his friends Lucinda Williams, Dale Watson and the late Buckwheat Zydeco.
Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.
But this isn't a "tribute band!" Drawing on years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band's musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.
Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin' and shakin', the band's quickly growing "GBB Family” fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.
Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy this band's extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Traffic, Dr. John, Merle Haggard, The Meters, Neville Brothers, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Tosh, to name a few. If your musical tastes range from rock-and-roll, country, R&B, blues, bluegrass, folk, or Americana, you will dig this band. No need to be a Deadhead.
With musicians hailing from the likes of New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cubensis, Buds of May, Ike Willis Band, Brothers Jam and LOOS3, this band is certain to provide high musical adventure!

Auntie-E, Uncle-B, and J-Dog lived with friends and animals on their farm in Montana where they grew fruits and vegetables (eat them every day!) One day J-Dog told Uncle-B and Auntie-E about growing up on a farm in Oregon and hearing stories about a magical, musical instrument tree in that silly place. When winter came, Auntie-E, Uncle-B and J-Dog decided to close up the farm in Montana and head west to gather some instruments up from the tree. They settled in Portland, OR where one of them teaches music in an elementary school, one of them is a scientist, and one of them is a professional musician and sells things. Sometimes they go back to visit their friends and animals on the farm in Montana and write songs around the campfire.
