So I have this idea. There are some really great jazz/funk bands here in the Pacific NW and I want to bring them together in a sweet Portland fest of sorts. Like “Jam Cruise“ without the cruise, or maybe with the cruise? (The Sternwheeler, anyone? Portland Spirit? )
Tonight we played at The White Eagle with Argyle, a really fantastic instrumental band playing exactly the kind of music we love. You can hear strands of The Greyboy Allstars, The New Mastersounds, Robert Walter, and the rest of our heroes. Meeting these guys made a pretty quiet show feel so very worthwhile.
If you are interested in joining up with this posse of jazz/funk kids to put together a festival or monthly show, or jam or party or something that brings us together – you just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “jazzfunk4ever” in the subject line and I’ll know we’re soulmates.
