McTUFF, JACOB FRED JAZZ ODYSSEY; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

The truly incredible McTuff are once again joined by indie jazz legends, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, for a round-robin, no holds barred super jam. Throw a costume on (or not!) and roll on over.
Hammond organist Joe Doria brings together the best of the NW music scene to create a powerful and jaw-dropping funk/jazz trio, exhibiting a mix of stellar musicianship, seasoned songwriting and DEEP groove. McTuff shows are a musical adventure you won’t soon forget.Joe is joined by Andy Coe on guitar and the Tarik Abouzied on drums. McTuff began in 2008 as an ode to jazz organ greats Jimmy Smith and Captain Jack McDuff, and has since evolved into a versatile and exciting group that has performed across the nation.
While navigating 20 years, 16 members, 25 albums, and countless tours around the world, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has become an institution in modern music. Defined by evolution and change, the band has invented it’s own language, one which permeates JFJO’s sound regardless of configuration. Though there is no Jacob or Fred, the last 20 years have been a Jazz Odyssey. Beginning in Tulsa, OK in 1994 as a funky octet with MCs and horns, JFJO became an instrumental trio in 1999, a quartet in 2007, and expanded to a 9-piece ensemble for 2011′s acclaimed “Race Riot Suite.” Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2014, this year finds the band returning to the trio setting with two new albums on the revered Brooklyn record label, Royal Potato Family. $10 [Click Here to purchase tickets]

They’ll be bringing 4 hours of funk, breaks, hip hop, house, boogie and disco filled with JB’s samples, remixes and beats to keep your head noddin’ and feet moving. The 3 selectors will be trading off and teaming up throughout the night to keep it fresh. Equipped with turntables, laptops and controllers, they’ll be mixing, blending and scratching— and they have something for everyone, no matter your flavor.
TAKIMBA draws from his unique heritage to bring a blend of dance floor heat that crosses genres and continents. Drawing from downtempo & dub to funk & breaks he draws from a wide selection to fit the dance floors temperature, whether he’s sharing the stage with the funky Fort Knox 5 or the dubby sounds of Ott. With over a decade of experience lighting up dance floors, TAKIMBA’s signature blend of West Coast bass with beats and pieces of international electronica keeps your feet moving and spine aligned. When he’s not traveling the globe in search of audio gems he’s holding down The Melting Pot Radio Show in Portland. $5

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

Tonight Shafty begins 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

MOTHERLODE (Humboldt), ELEKTRAPOD; Doors @ 9, @ 10:00pm

Motherlode is a 10 piece funk train hailing from the beautiful north coast of California in the redwoods of Humboldt County. Since the band’s inception in 2012 these funky pioneers have been blazing the trail and sharing the stage with such legends as Fred Wesley, Bill Summers and DJ Logic. The band features all three on their new album, “All in Good Time”. The sound like equal parts 70′s soundtrack—funk ala James Brown– and The Funky Meters. Add a dash of Fela Kuti and a bit of Daptone-like soul and you hit the Motherlode.

L’IL SMOKIES, KORY QUINN BAND; Doors at 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Hailing from the utopian garden city of Missoula, MT, The Lil’ Smokies exploded onto the progressive bluegrass scene in the winter of 2009 and haven’t shown any signs of fatigue since. Sharing the stage with heavyweights like Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Keller Williams, Greensky Bluegrass, The Emmit-Nershi Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Travellin’ McCourys, Sam Bush Band, Fruition, Infamous Stringdusters, Bradford Lee Folk and The Bluegrass Playboys, and dozens of others, The Lil’ Smokies have no problem captivating large audiences. With a unique blend of traditional bluegrass, newgrass, unique original compositions, and sheer raw energy, The Lil’ Smokies weave seamlessly through genres, leaving something for everyone. The Smokies have played the Trap Bar at Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival (2011), the Bozeman Bluegrass Fest (2011), Sandpoint Summer Fest (2013), Wintergrass (2014), River City Roots Festival (2011, 2013, 2014), Northwest Folklife Festival (2014), the Northwest String Summit’s Further Stage and Main Stage (2013, 2014). This six-piece bluegrass ensemble features, Pete Barrett (guitar), Andy Dunnigan (dobro), Scott Parker (upright bass), Matt Cornette (banjo), Cameron Wilson (mandolin), and Jesse Brown (Fiddle).
Kicking off the evening is the inimatable Kory Quinn and his band, The Comrades! Songwriter Quinn, a DIY contemporary hobo intellectual, has a refreshingly homespun take on Americana, a very welcome sigh of relief in today’s contemporary market. After spending over 270 Self-Booked Dates on the road, spanning 7 countries, on three Continents this past year alone, Quinn still finds time to write and record new material. The just released second full-length album, At The End of The Bar, boils down red-dirt basics in a freewheeling roadhouse stew. Quinn’s songwriting is adroit and surefooted, offering sturdily constructed country, folk, and Cajun-tinged songs for his ensemble to really sink their fangs into on this instant jukebox classic. The songs are short and sweet but packed with clever lines, sentimental harmonies and twangy fills. All that makes them the kind of songs that hang around your brain like honky-tonk regulars. Amongst his self penned road-worn material are stories and song that harken back to old-time drinking songs and heart rending country standards. In time they will be themselves for they are never new and they never get old. $8

SCOTT LAW BAND, THE STUDENT LOAN @ 10:00pm

Scott Law may have been born in Southern California but his music pulls together traditions from every corner of the country. His latest album, Black Mountain (released October 29, 2013 on Volcano Underground), is all about his acoustic roots and the fiddle-driven string-band sounds of the Appalachian Southeast. On this beautifully captured recording, Law successfully draws upon a number of wide-ranging musical influences, from Austin’s alt-country to raw Bluegrass and even the improvisational spirit of bands like the Grateful Dead. These influences–and Law’s years of experience in groups like Hanuman, Brokedown in Bakersfield (with Nicki Bluhm), and Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings—combine to create a unique sound that the musician-singer-songwriter, now based in Portland, defines as “Current Roots Americana.” Scott is a goodfoot favorite whose spirit shines bright and whose notes ring true— we are honored to have him back on our stage.
Kicking off the night is The Student Loan. Together for nine years, SL is a progressive-acoustic newgrass project based out of Portland, Oregon. Their diverse style transcends genre, fusing elements of jazz, blues, rock and jam with traditional bluegrass instrumentation. They are known for their fun and funky originals, their quirky covers, and their knack for getting a crowd moving on the dance floor. $12

NEW YEARS EVE with SCOTT PEMBERTON TRIO; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

We’re very excited to welcome back Scott Pemberton Trio (SP3) for our New Years Eve festivities and hope you’ll spend the evening with us! Simply put, no one plays guitar like Scott Pemberton! His unique style has drawn comparisons to Jimi Hendrix, Ivan “Boogaloo Joe” Jones, Dick Dale and a score of other influential and legendary players. 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
