An all-star cast of Portland musicians converge, reviving the jazz-funk sound with street smarts and unwavering grooves. Spearheaded by guitarist Chance Hayden and New Orleans native saxophonist Devin Phillips, the group boasts a repertoire peppered with rare groove gems that one would more likely discover through a UK playlist rather than the setlist of a stateside band. In this case the term “supergroup” firmly applies with a rhythm section of bassist Damian Erskine, drummer Tyrone Hendrix and collective performance credits that include Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz, The Headhunters, Gino Vanelli, Peter Erskine, Allen Stone, Jarrod Lawson and more.

Furthermore, on this occasion the group will be joined by ace keyboardist Ramsey Embick, a former musical director for The Pointer Sisters and studio collaborator to dozens of others from Bobby Womack to Michael Jackson. If that gets you thinking of favorite vocal cuts, expect to hear some of those too as the group will be further augmented by special guest vocalists.

Don’t go to sleep until Monday morning, ring in Memorial Day at The Goodfoot with a surefire party that’ll leave some swagger in your step.
