Backed by a versatile and funky band, Scott rages extended solos while never veering far from his rhythmic chops, always keeping the dance floor packed. Since his first gig here in May of 2001, Scott has performed at the goodfoot something like 400 times, but his recent ascent into national touring has kept his Portland shows to rare occasions— like this!!! Come celebrate the changing of the years with us and come prepared to dance….because SP3 is gonna unleash the monster tonight!!! $16 Advanced Ticket Price [Purchase HERE] / $18 At The Door.
In keeping with a grand tradition around here, we will transport all of the body-shaking soul and funk of The Soul Stew DJ’s to the upstairs art gallery/pub, for an evening of the finest, greasiest 45′s from their huge collections. As always, it will be a straight-up dance party into the New Year! $15 dollars at the door for the Soul Stew Dj’s.

SHAFTY; Doors at 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Tonight Shafty continues a several months long Wednesday residency at the goodfoot! What began as essentially a goof – a chance to throw down some familiar dancey beats and jam for whoever felt like listening – ultimately lit a spark under the off-the-radar powder keg of Phish fans in the Portland, Oregon music scene. Brett McConnell (bass) and Rob Sipsky (guitar) spent more time talking about the possibility of putting a Phish tribute together than actually practicing, prior to that first performance at the goodfoot, in February of 2012. Expectations for attendance were moderate at best, yet before the band played the first note, there was a line out the door, culminating in a jam-filled celebration of the music of Phish to an over-capacity crowd! The demand for a repeat was high, and Shafty was born. If there’s a motive, it’s to recreate the energy of a Phish show, with the attitude of playful band-audience interaction at the forefront, sharp musical skill acting as a behind-the-scenes glue to hold it all together.
Over the first year alone, the band played 83 unique songs, ranging from spoken word moments such as Lengthwise, to epic compositions including You Enjoy Myself, Reba, David Bowie, and The Curtain (With), already to multiple sold-out and near sold out audiences. Classic Phish gimmicks are in full force: trampolines, megaphones, choreographed dances, vacuum cleaner solos, instrument switching, and the secret language are alive and well at a Shafty show. $7

SOPHISTAFUNK, TUBALUBA; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Syracuse-based Sophistafunk is the product of three multi-talented musicians — Adam Gold, Jack Brown, & Emanuel Washington — who combine spoken-word artistry, old-school hip hop & funky rhythms to create a unique live band experience.The band met in 2007 and rapidly evolved into a national-touring live act. Known for their HUGE sound (created by only three members), the band has won over crowds with a captivating stage presence and tight musicianship. Rooted by old school funk / hip hop, the trio explores electronic dance grooves while infusing each tune with soul and positively charged lyrics. Sophistafunk is a multi-genre tour de force, jam packed with vintage tones and live instruments.
For six years, this road warrior band has been hitting the pavement across the United States, collaborating live with greats spanning Bernie Worrell (Parliament/Talking Heads) to Nikki Glaspie (Beyonce/Dumpstaphunk). Sophistafunk has played high-profile venues including The Blue Note Jazz Club (NYC), The Boom Boom Room (San Francisco), The Belly Up (Aspen), Brooklyn Bowl (NYC) and more and supported acts including Soulive, G. Love, Foreigner, Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, EOTO, Marco Benevento and more.
Seattle’s Tubaluba is the brainchild of Josh “Papaluba” Wilson. In 2009, Wilson gathered personnel with the philosophy that players had to be good, and players had to be cool. Musically, Wilson hoped to capture the spirit of New Orleans, and convey it with a brass street band rhythm and style. The band still plays some of the brass band and vintage soul favorites that inspired it’s conception, but is steadily writing, developing, and performing its own repertoire. Their self titled debut was released on Fat Tuesday 2012 to fanfare from Seattle’s KEXP radio, and the second album was released as a vinyl 45 in July 2014.

TURKUAZ; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

The Brooklyn-based funk army known as Turkuaz “is like tossing a lit match into a dumpster full of fireworks” (bestnewbands.com). Their stage show combines influences from Sly and the Family Stone to Talking Heads into an explosive auditory and visual circus, a full-frontal assault on the senses. After multiple residencies at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl, two blowout performances at Bear Creek Music Festival, and tours spanning the east and west coasts, Turkuaz has developed a reputation from NYC to San Francisco as the band that plays louder, faster, and harder than all the rest. $10
