Hammond organist, Joe Doria brings together some of the areas finest with “McTuff”! Joe Doria, Andy Coe, and D’Vonne Lewis, a few of the best from Seattle’s incredible music scene, come together to create a powerful and jaw-dropping take on a soul jazz trio like you’ve never heard.
What began as an ode to some of the organ greats in soul jazz, such as delivering their own take on the works of Jimmy Smith and Captain Jack McDuff, soon turned into something more. A movement towards being a band that can appeal to almost any audience, room, and vibe.
Melody, dynamics, and groove from the soft and surreal to deep funk. From swinging soul all the way to the thumping metal grind, no musical stone is left unturned. McTUFF is about letting it all go and having fun, a moment of time to remember the groove laid down by the soul masters as well as introduce original works of their own.
8-piece funk/soul group Philly’s Phunkestra had a busy 2010 sharing the stages with acts such as Dumpstaphunk, Questlove (from the Roots), Rebirth Brass Band, Galactic, members of March Fourth Marching Band, The Wailers (of Bob Marley), and appearances in the Soul’d Out Festival, 2011 PDX Jazzfest, Oregon Brewer’s Festival, and the Organic Brewer’s Festival in Portland, Oregon.
