The duo spends much of their summers performing in outdoor festivals. Last summer they appeared at Parkfest, which was sponsored by Richmond’s River City Blues Society and wowed the crowds at the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland, ME where they appeared alongside such well-known blues acts as Joe Louis Walker, Teeny Tucker, Joanna Connor, and The Mannish Boys.
In between those two performances they won the Duo Division of the River City Blues Society’s Blues Challenge.

This will be their third year in a row attending the Challenge in Memphis, twice as a youth showcase, and this year to compete with the “big dogs”.

A Family Affair...
Cole and Logan's musical journey started with their mom, Sandy Layman, who plays drums. They began jamming in their basement when the kids were just starting out. She took them to open mics in the DC area, which led to gigs for their family band, In Layman Terms. Their father, Doug Layman, bought a sound system and learned how to run sound for them.
