About Floating Pointe

Floating Pointe

Floating Pointe currently plays their music around Portland as an acoustic trio with singing, guitars, and a viola, or sometimes as a very electronic, guitar heavy six-piece band.

"Sweet melodies and layers of sound you can almost taste. From acoustic to synth, rock groove to bedside sleepytime."

About Rich Layton and the Troublemakers

Rich 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.

About Steve Kerin

Steve Kerin

On Thursdays, Steve Kerin entertains the Chapel Pub by playing all of your favorite songs, but in a way that you have never heard them before – on solo pipe organ! The audience is encouraged to request tunes from a list of nearly a thousand songs. They range all the way from pop to heavy metal, jazz to movie themes, '80s hits to oldies. It's charming and fun to hear these songs on an actual pipe organ – that's with pipes, chimes, and all – in an old church. You've got hear this!

In the spring of 2005 Steve Kerin got in his car in Lafayette, Louisiana, and pointed it west. After camping and gigging his way through deserts, truckstops, bars, and nightclubs he decided to park it in Portland, Oregon.

Born and raised in the Heart of Cajun Country, Kerin discovered piano at the age of four. While studying classical music in college, he discovered such New Orleans piano greats as Dr. John, Professor Longhair and James Booker. He soon found himself playing regularly with such Louisiana greats as "Big Daddy" Harry Hypolite, former guitarist for Zydeco great Clifton Chenier, as well as Grammy-nominated songwriter David Egan. In 2005. he played at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival alongside such artists as Randy Newman and The Black Crowes.

Kerin is a true student of the New Orleans style, and his playing is complex and dense. His voice has the gruff quality needed to 'sound' like New Orleans. His piano performances have been with groups as varied as his musical talents -- from jazz to rock to blues to classical to wherever his talent and soul take him.
