    I grew up when Funk was coming of age. The Funk Brothers were the set musicians for every single record that came out of Barry Gordy’s Motown! Nobody even Knew who they were until a documentary a few years back, it’s Great! And with that, a Huge Love of the Funk! peace

    The goodfoot is an amazing joint to hear all kinds of funk soul jazz boogie goodness. Always worth the visit!!!

    My husband and I scored a rare babysitter to celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary this weekend. We’d LOVE to do something extra-fun like enjoy Philly’s Phunkestra at The Goodfoot on Saturday night!

    Love the horn-ey funk! And my feet love the Goodfoot.

    Ms. Polk…if you’ve already got a babysitter AND it’s your wedding anniversary, even if you don’t win, I’d suggest shelling out the $7/ticket cover for this. You won’t regret it.

  6. Amanda May 16, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    Awwww, yeah…the Phunk is in the Foot! I’ll be there to shake my groove thang. I won’t regret paying either but you certainly won’t regret hooking me up!

  7. Mandy May 16, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

    Ooh, Ooh! Pick me! Pick me! I’m excited to hang with Philly’s again!!!

    I’ve seen these fellas at a few festivals/shows now and they are always a good time. (And I feel like they’ve played even bigger stages than the ones listed above….) And I’ll spread the word about how cool PDX Pipeline is for giving away these tickets to me. ;-)

    Yay! I love this band and I love Good foot! The reason I would like to win tickets is because my boyfriend and I are so broke lately- we haven’t been able to go out dancing in a year!! I’d love to spice things up for us again :)

    Having just been to the James Brown night at the Goodfoot all I want is more. More horns, more sweat, more dancing. I would love to go to another equally amazing event but alas I have absolutely no funds to do so. Plus last time I went solo, so maybe this time I’ll find my soul mate. Get it? Soul Mate. If a great pun won’t get me these tickets I don’t know what will.

    My son and I have been wanting to catch these guys for months. Pick us pick us!

  11. Alan Silver May 17, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

    Ms Polk sounds like she could use the night out, but if you don’t choose her, I’d love to take my lovely collaborator Jamilah to this. We work together on a number of projects, including a large flash mob dance event once a year that doubles as a fundraiser. Anyway, we’d love to be at this show, sipping mai tais and getting our groove on. much love!

  12. Jared May 17, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

    Ooh I’d love to!

  13. Jordan Rose May 17, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    I was gonna go to Symbiosis Festival this weekend but have to stay in town to work. I’d love to cheek out some funk to keep me from having complete FOMO. I’ll even whip out the goldfish platforms! Sheeeeeeeit!

  14. Andy May 17, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

    Phunkestra! Oh, hell-to-the-YEAH!

    These guys can set the roof on fire! Hopefully, they won’t literally do that, as the roof isn’t technically a roof. Would love to go see Philly bring it.

  15. Sarah May 17, 2012 at 1:39 pm #

    My husband and I are coming to Portland to celebrate our 1st ever, kick-ass, WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!! Ya. Ya.

    We need to get our groove on to some dirty funk. I mean dancing, sweet, sweet dancing.

  16. Michele May 17, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

    Please sign me up to win tickets to this total slam dunk of funk you have lined up Saturday! I’d love to show off the super cool dance moves I learned watching Soul Train as a kid.
