This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



For the past 3 years, Eric Schaffer & The Other Troublemakers have been entertaining crowds throughout Arizona and beyond.   With a musical style that flows between Country, Folk and "Singer-Songwriter", they play a mix of well-crafted original songs, classic covers, and deep cuts - all of which feature their trademark two, three and four-part harmonies.

They play 50-60 dates per year at clubs, restaurants, private events and recently opened for Grammy  Award-winner Marc Cohn at Tucson's iconic Fox Theater.

Eric has been recognized as one of Southern Arizona's best songwriters and his vocals have been compared to Steve Earle and Kris Kristofferson.   Drummer and vocalist Bruce Halper is a recent inductee into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame.  Troy Martin is a TAMMIE (Tucson Area Music Awards) award-winning bassist/vocalist, and Lonesome Lee West is a highly skilled lead guitarist/vocalist who has been featured in bands from Boston to LA and parts in between.

The band is available for hire in multiple configurations: as a duo, trio, or 4-piece.   They can adjust their set list to fit a country dance hall, or an intimate listening room.    In any venue or configuration, they play at an appropriate volume and they know how to work the crowd.

For most shows, Eric Schaffer & The Other Troublemakers can provide a sound system that can be scaled for the most intimate rooms, large clubs and outdoor events.   

For festival shows, backline requirements are minimal: 

  • 4 vocal mics 
  • 3 stage monitors
  • 1 DI box for acoustic guitar 
  • 1 small bass amp - Fender Rumble 100 or similar
  • 1 small guitar amp - Fender Blues Deluxe or similar
  • Drum kit: kick, snare, hihat, ride & crash cymbals

When you hire Eric Schaffer & The Other Troublemakers, you get seasoned musicians who arrive on time and perform with passion.
