Danny Barnes @ The GoodfootDanny Barnes & Fruition
Saturday, October 22
9 p.m. | $8 | 21+

The Goodfoot
2845 SE Stark Street

Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and genre-bending artists of his craft, Barnes' musical interests are both varied and adventurous, and he incorporates that versatility into a progressive approach to an instrument that is musically polarizing and steeped in tradition.

Although he demonstrates an appreciation for the history of the bluegrass, country, and folk music from which the banjo's reputation was born, his inventive take is what truly separates him from his contemporaries¬Â¦using the banjo as his ¬Ëœweapon of choice' to play non-traditional music like rock, fusion, and jazz with electronic percussion and loop elements. Tonight he is joined by PDX's beloved acoustic soul/newgrass pioneers, Fruition.

    I would LOVE to see Danny do his thang. Music to my ears and my soul. Been too long.

    I would love to see Danny and Fruition on Saturday so I can dance all night long!

    One of the things I love about Portland is its attraction of artisans of all types – chefs, musicians, writers – whose art is steeped in tradition, yet still explores new boundaries in an authentic way. I try not to miss Fruition whenever they are in town, but have yet to see Danny Barnes live, and am eager to expand my “must see” list :-)

    Fruition and Danny make me dance so hard I wear the sole’s out of my boots. Therefore I need help funding tickets to see them since I have to constantly buy new boots!

    I would LOVE to see Danny and Fruition this Saturday for a number of reasons. 1.) Danny Barnes is very tall and will stand out in the Goodfoot. 2.) His banjo playing makes me shake my ass! 3.) His song Death Trip is so funky that when joined by Fruition, it will blow the roof off the place!!

    I would love to boogie with Danny Barnes & Portland favorites Fruition – support live (local) music! Fantastic way to spend a Saturday night!

    Well, I’d like to win these tickets for my friend, Rodney Bryant, who lives in NE Portland, who took me to Goodfoot Lounge back in 08. You see, I just saw Danny Barnes in Arkansas at the Yonder Mtn. Stringband’s Harvest Music festival and his addicting banjo skills and quirky southern vocals are a must see! And, since my friend turned me onto the Bad Livers, years ago…I’d love to win these tix for him! Word!

    this would be a great night for me to catch a show. I’ve been waiting to see Fruition for the first time, for a long time.
    And i just got a monsterous ticket, for running a yellow light. of course thats not the reason I haven’t seen fruition.
    either way I’ll be there.

    I love bluegrass!

    This seems to have become an October tradition; a love triangle between me and Danny and the Foot. Can’t wait ’til Saturday when I may put on a pre-Halloween costume and get my boogie on!

    Danny is a crazy mo fo who wails on the guitar! Love him, esp. with the sweet, local fruitful groves. Wouldn’t miss ’em but sure could use the extra cash for some PBRs… :-)

    Fruition! I haven’t heard the sweet harmonies of these talented cats wonderful vocal chords since the days when warmth was pouring generously from the sky. And even though they were playing to a street crowd on Hawthorne, they still caused about 30 or 40 folks to stop and have a listen. And though, I’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Danny Barnes’ music, if he’s sharing a bill with Fruition, he’s gotta be good. Should be a good time, and I wanna be a part of it!

  13. Christopher Chandler October 20, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    I have seen a lot of music in my day, and I have to say the Fruition is by far one of the most talented bands I have ever seen in my life. Shimmering vocal harmonies, rock solid songwriting, instrumental prowess, deep lyrical content, and emotional resonance… these kids have it all. Plus they’re wonderful people, as I know them personally.

    Combined with Danny Barnes shredding capabilities, it’s gonna make for a hell of a night at one of my favorite PDX venues, the Goodfoot. Gimme a Fruition/Barnes callabo jam, and it will send the crowd into the stratosphere.

    i would love to get chosen to go see what danny barnes is working on these days.

    Love me some Danny B

  17. leroy October 20, 2011 at 8:19 pm #

    I just wanna dance!

    …because, proportionally, it will do the most good to give those tickets to me, since nobody can POSSIBLY enjoy banjo as much as I do. So, in essence, those tickets will increase world happiness. I can only hope that Mr. Danny Barnes will bring his banjo this time (Please, Mr Banrnes?). But, well, even if he doesn’t, it will still be awesome, and who cares? My tickets were free anyway! ;)

    sounds like music to my ears…

  20. mcregeur October 21, 2011 at 1:33 pm #

    Fruition has developed a unique sound that’s completely their own which is impressive. Because of that, their following here is Portland that is completely unmatched by anything else I have seen in town. Fruition’s talent not only makes you want to listen to music, but seeing how much fun they are obviously having up there, inspire you to want to play music as well. I’ll be there, we’re always there.

  21. Scott October 21, 2011 at 4:29 pm #

    I’d like to see Danny Barnes because he’s one of my favorite regional musicians. I’d like to see Fruition because they are one of my favorite local bands. Two tickets would be awesome I’d give one to my friend Marc who has never heard Barne’s music.

    love it! fruition and danny barnes, I hope you’ll all be on stage together.
