About The Jack Maybe Project


The Jack Maybe Project

Jack Maybe was forged in the fires of the American sound. The sirens of Blues, Jazz, Folk, and Bluegrass grew nearby and he was able to learn their tunes. Through the centuries, he found different beasts who were his kin, and together they began to sing the songs of the Old Monsters who roamed the earth before they. The monsters change form and ferocity, but the songs remain the same.

About Falcon Heart

Indie Folk

Falcon Heart

Soaring, melodic harmonies, and captivating storytelling form the foundation of Falcon Heart's Folk inspired Indie/Rock sound. With influences ranging from Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes to Sublime and Elvis Presley, Falcon Heart expresses love, loss, and lessons learned from the evergreen city of Portland, Oregon.

Falcon Heart was conceived when a Craigslist ad brought musicians and Oregon natives Marcus Glaze and Aaron DeRosso together almost ten years ago. They have been refining their friendship, songwriting, and performance skills through various projects ever since, forming Falcon Heart in 2015 with the addition of bassist Robert Williams and electric violinist Jean Mastaler.

Glaze, a natural born performer, joins his instrumental, vocal, and songwriting talents with those of DeRosso, a meticulous and engaging long-time drummer, singer/songwriter, and recent guitarist. Williams embellishes upon Falcon Heart's melodies with his catchy and intricate bass lines, while Mastaler blends her classical sensibility with her fierce electric violin into the expressive, nuanced, and explosive sound that is Falcon Heart.

About Rich Layton & Tough Town

Swampadelic soundtrack

Rich Layton & Tough Town

Rich Layton & Tough Town 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 has a signature sound that sits right alongside such eclectic artists as Marty Stuart, Shooter Jennings and Lukas Nelson. Each set takes audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich's original songs fit seamlessly into the mix, weaving his Gulf Coast roots through tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified.

Together over a decade now, the band has released three albums and performs at major festivals and showcase clubs throughout the Northwest.  Each year, Rich joins Lyle Lovett as a special guest when Lyle tours the NW. Rich also has played on Portland tour stops by his long-time friends Lucinda Williams, Buckwheat Zydeco (R.I.P.), Dale Watson and many more.



About Wilclone - A Tribute to Wilco

Wilclone - A Tribute to Wilco

Wilco doesn't come around much these days. Portland's Wilclone feels your pain. Let them transport you back to the Y2K era for a joyous tribute to Chicago's finest alt-country-turned-indie-rock-turned-wisened-folk band of all time. Hang out with fellow Wilco fans, raise a glass and rejoice.


About Chris Baron and Searchlights

Folk with Swagger

Chris Baron and Searchlights

Searchlights is a prog rock trio based in Portland Oregon.  Spawned from Pac NW songwriter Chris Baron's 2006 Evelate album (find it on Spotify or anywhere you want to), the music is explosive, evocative, and whipping clever.  Dusty Beats and Joe Bass evolved with Chris to make tight grooves and melodic moves.  "People" have compared them to Rush mixed with Sublime mixed with 311...for starters.  All-original, and unapologetic.  If they choose to do a cover song, it is notable, and unpredictable, and if you happen to recognize it, you are all best friends forever from that point on.  You get it.  

The band is back in action in 2023 after a ten year hiatus, and are poised to release a debut collection of original material called 'Evelating'.  Go down the historical rabbit hole:

Follow these men @searchlights.Pdx (or some variation of that) on any of your favorite social medias.  Toss them a stat by subscribing or liking.  

But most importantly, come to a live show.  That is the whole point, and the holy magic.
