SHAFTY (Night 2 of 2): Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Join us for the second of two stellar nights of music! Shafty is the country’s finest Phish tribute band! 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 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. $10

ANDY COE BAND with Special Guest SCOTT LAW, JOHN KADLECIK SOLO; Doors @ 9, @ 10:00pm

Boy howdy, this one is going to be something special! Originally formed to pay tribute to guitar hero and folk legend Jerry Garcia, the Andy Coe Band has evolved into the liveliest psychedelic jam band to come out of the Pacific Northwest in years. Guitarist Andy Coe, with Gary Palmer on keys, Chris Jones on bass, and Scott Goodwin on drums, delivers stellar improvisational tunes in mystical proportions.
With a rich background in jazz and a joyful enthusiasm for blues and psychedelic rock, Andy Coe is recognized as a deeply intuitive, emotive guitarist. As an architect of sound and style, Coe draws in listeners, making collective exploration and resolution accessible across genres. Born and raised in Seattle, Andy played in the critically acclaimed Roosevelt Highschool Jazz band before going on to graduate from the music department of the University of North Texas. He has played venues and festivals around the country and world ever since.
Andy has performed with many great musicians including Jimmy Page, Duff McKagen, Jerry Cantrell, Kim Thayil, Paul Rogers, Rich Robinson, Reggie Workman, Rashied Ali, Ravi Coltrane, Norah Jones, Stanton Moore, Mike Clark, Bobby Previtte, Skerik, Mike Dillon, Karl Denson, Wil Blades and many others. Currently, Andy resides in Seattle and plays in Skerik’s Bandalabra, Tuatara, McTuff and the Andy Coe Band among others.
Joining ACB for the whole show is none other than guitar virtuoso and Phil Lesh collaborator, Scott Law! Law has performed with an array of bluegrass, American roots, rock and jam band luminaries including Phil Lesh & Friends, longtime musical accomplices The String Cheese Incident, Darol Anger, Tim & Nicki Bluhm, Tony Furtado, The Mother Hips, Crooked Still, Peter Rowan, The Travelin’ McCourys, Leftover Salmon, Danny Barnes, Railroad Earth, Jerry Joseph, Melvin Seals, Brokedown in Bakersfield and many others!
But wait, this night gets even better! John Kadlecik is a singer, songwriter, and musician based in the DC-area who can play most string instruments, but is primarily known for being a guitar-slinging sideman to Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir in the band Furthur. An original co-founder of the group Dark Star Orchestra, John has been performing improvisationally-oriented shows regularly since the late 1980’s and touring nationally for the last 20 years. John will be playing an acoustic-electric solo set to kick the festivities off, so come early! $15

MOTOPONY, TY-ALEX, THE ECHOLARKS, YOUNG MISTER; Doors @ 7, Music @ 8:00pm

Join us for a rare Sunday show as Seattle’s Motopony makes their goodfoot debut. MP is a musical journey devoted to being both physical and spiritual in a digital world. The band is the brainchild of Daniel Blue. In 2014, Blue assembled a band flush with top-shelf musicians, including drummer Forrest Mauvais, who stuck around from the band’s previous incarnation, and Mike Notter, who would prove to be a good foil for Blue’s hard-charging boisterousness (“the Spock to my Kirk,” Blue says). Blue filled out the lineup with Andrew Butler on keys, Nate Daley on guitar, and Terry Mattson on bass. The band helped Blue whittle down his 36 songs — songs that had weathered the test of time, surviving two years and several new band members — into a 5-song EP that announced a revitalized rock band with a new direction and a new sense of collaboration. Idle Beauty was a summary of where the band had been and a map of where it was going. On its surface, it’s a collection of folk songs. But album-rock ambition, and Blue’s drive to transcend his own best work bubble just beneath the surface.
Ty-Alex is an Indie-Rock band from Portland formed in 2017. The group consist of producer/songwriter Tommy Alexander, bass man Ian Wade, guitar shredder Adam Witkowski, and drummer + beats Django Koenig.
Young Mister is songwriter Steven Fiore, sometimes accompanied by a band of talented musicians across the southeast United States. As a songwriter, Fiore has spent many years building a fan base along both coasts, touring with Jay Clifford (Jump Little Children), Slow Runner, and even regularly performing as a guest vocalist in Jeff Goldblum’s jazz band in Los Angeles. After spending 6 years writing with Universal Music Publishing Group, Fiore is now shedding his skin and stretching into new musical territory as Young Mister with this self-titled, debut album.
Taking influence from classic rock bands like Electric Light Orchestra, Young Mister worked with producer Wolfgang Zimmerman (Brave Baby, The High Divers) to create an album that embodies the ethos of Americana while retaining the distinct, soulful sound that Fiore’s fans know and love. The album ebbs and flows from big band arrangements, such as the brass-filled “The Best Part”, to the catchy and psychedelic “Anybody Out There”, before closing on “Pasadena”, a song whose lyrics take influence from Fiore’s own past as an artist torn between two coasts. The arrangements invoke a deep sense of nostalgia as they are carefully paired with vivid and relatable lyrics that truly resonate with the listener. $10

URAL THOMAS and THE PAIN; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Join us for our new First Monday Monthly with Ural Thomas and the Pain! Ural Thomas is, and forever will be Portland’s pillar of soul. He started singing beneath his mothers knee in church at the age of 3. By high school he led the doo-wop group the Mono Rays, breaking hearts and taking names at Jefferson High and Irvington Park along the way. Ural’s voice and songwriting soon gained national attention and he found himself sharing the stage with the likes of James Brown, Otis Redding, Johnny Guitar Watson and “Little” Stevie Wonder. He played the Apollo 44 times. He backed the Northwest’s biggest soul and garage outfits of the1960s (The Kingsmen, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Cavaliers Unlimited) and he never for a moment stopped teaching, singing and loving soul music. Now Ural is poised to represent Portland on equal ground with contemporaries like Lee Fields, Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, all of whom ultimately gained their dues in their golden years. To ensure the legacy he’s backed by a 9 piece band comprised of the some of the most recognizable session and solo players in town. Band leader/drummer Scott Magee (aka Cooky Parker) has arranged a setlist compiled from the gilded age of soul and R&B and Ural originals, all with a sharp focus on moving the dance floor. The foot stomping days of Jump Town, USA have returned and Ural Thomas & the Pain are here to lead the way. $5

Here, Fulero leads an ultra-tight 5-piece ensemble with a top-shelf groove and a sound that blends classic American radio rock and funk/jazz-fusion with the psychedelic, improvisational bent of the jamband culture. The band bobs and weaves through complex original arrangements as easily as it turns on a dime to rework them into new spaces, keeping the dance floor happy while taking listeners on a familiar-yet-original journey. $6

OBJECT HEAVY, JELLY BREAD; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

California’s Object Heavy draws from the sound of soul music! Inspired by the parameters of rock, funk, blues, R&B and hip hop, the band features two singers, whose lyrics remind us of a world in need, a world to love, and a place to be free. Their self-titled debut album features Bill Summers, percussionist of Herbie Hancock’s acclaimed “HeadHunters”. DJ Logic shows up on two tracks, and you’ll get to hear the Legendary Fred Wesley (James Brown Band, Parliament) with his signature trombone. Sleep and Zone (Macklemore) of “The Chicharones” and Raashan Ahmad of the “Crown City Rockers” are featured, as well. As a touring outfit they have backed these artists and many other legendary performers and their past goodfoot shows have been serious get downs!
Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a nationally- touring, powerhouse quintet that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing. $10

THE SEXTET, FARNELL NEWTON and THE OTHERSHIP CONNECTION; Doors @ 8, Music @ 9:00pm

Playing original compositions and arrangements of bassist Robert Castillo, The Sextet plays music to move to and moved by. Castillo originally formed the group in the fall of 2015 in Portland, OR and when Life called him back to his native home of Kansas City, he reformed the group with childhood friends and other prominent KC musicians.
Robert’s writing incorporates elements of funk, soul, and dance, as well as jazz song structures and harmonies. The result is contemporary groove jazz that a listener of any background can bob their head to. The songs are influenced by life events and experiences – a set can include a variety of emotions including joy, anger, frustration, and bliss.
The Sextet’s debut album was released just before Castillo left Portland and was listed on KMHD Portland Jazz Radio’s Top Top Albums of 2016 list.
“To release a debut as compelling, organic and self-assured as “In A Natural State” is cause for celebration. When the group disbands only days after the record release show, all that’s left to do is play the whole album again and wonder at what could have been. This debut/swan song deftly manages the tricky balance between being a laid back groove record and a vehicle for emotive improvisation…In this moment, there is greatness. Portland never got the chance to know it.” (KMHD Portland Jazz Radio). $8

LIVER DOWN THE RIVER, SUGARCANE; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a six piece psych-a-funk-adelic-grass band called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since it’s creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of Head for the Hills, Tony Furtado, and Bill Nershi to name a few.
The band got it’s start in 2012 when Patrick Storen and Emily Winter met and started playing music together. A few common fiddle tunes and Grateful Dead numbers later, the two were ready to perform. Searching for the missing link, they enlisted the help of funk master and bass player Derek Abt. In time, young ”river ridin’ flat-pickin” Dylan Ruckel joined on guitar and vocals. With the addition of drummer Carter Colia and banjo/keys and vocalist Tyler Rice, Liver Down the River was formed.
Over the last few years Sugarcane has evolved into one of the top bluegrass-rock bands on the West Coast and is showing no signs of slowing down. A sweet mix of country, Caribbean, blues and bluegrass, the band knows how to pen a thoughtful tune and fill the dance floor in equal measure. $8
