Continuing our annual tradition of delivering you an amazing New Year’s Eve Bash, we’ve teamed up with the amazing Scott Pemberton Trio for an evening of awesome music, good times, and great people to help you ring in the arrival of 2015.

About SP3:
Scott’s path is simple and clear. Make the best music he can…..Share it with others…..That is all.

The Music,

Until you have seen Scott Pemberton play the guitar it is hard to describe what he does. His music comes from the heart, is very danceable and quite honestly, no one plays the guitar like him. He gets regular comparisons to other great musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Dick Dale, and James Brown, but after a brief listen it is clear that Scott has something all his own.

“Classic rock, jazz, psychedelia and everything in between collide and fuse around the notion of discovery that jumps with ease from the composer to the listener…Pemberton is a multi-genre master and a clever lyricist who can convey fun while digging deep”(Willamette Week)

Scott’s Path,

Scott is a Portland native and has supported himself solely with the guitar since the age of 19. Until recently, he followed the customary path of playing sessions, teaching lessons and performing in lots of bands. Not long ago he had an encounter with death that changed that path entirely.

The incident is a blur. Two years ago, bike met car. Doctors said Pemberton was unlikely to live. If he did, he might never speak again. Days later, Pemberton snapped to. After time, he started to play music again. He saw his path.

When Scott returned to playing the guitar it was as if he had been reborn, playing with a new focus of intensity and joy that can only come from someone who has faced death. He returned to intense practice from a beginners mind, as though he hadn’t played the guitar before, redefining how he approached music and the instrument. The mastery of his guitar playing combined with the fun recklessness of his songwriting show that the rules of songwriting and playing the guitar no longer exist for him. Scott plays with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time time we make music is an honor and a gift.

Soul Stew (upstairs)
In keeping with a grand tradition around here, we will transport all of the body-shaking soul and funk of The Soul Stew DJ’s to the upstairs art gallery/pub, for an evening of the finest, greasiest 45′s from their huge collections. As always, it will be a straight-up dance party into the New Year!

    SP3 is infectious music causing your feet to jitter in dance – combine that to the high energy venue of the Goodfoot and NYE will start 2014 off with a positive dancey blast!

  22. Pepper December 28, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

    I love getting down at the good foot lounge. Can’t wait to shake it on New Years !!!

  23. SR December 28, 2014 at 6:05 pm #

    Because I’m an over-educated thirty-something with a shit ton of debt working as a temporary legal assistant and living with her mom. Out of pity is why you should pick me. Oh, and I’m single (self-explanatory), so one ticket will do. Although, I may grow a pair of cojones and ask someone out, so perhaps two tix is best. PS – when I say I live with my mom, I mean I sleep on a blowup mattress in her living room.

  24. Tyler December 28, 2014 at 9:41 pm #

    I am recently engaged and would love to show my fiancé a good time with great music and friends.

  25. Kathy Harris December 29, 2014 at 7:03 am #

    Wow, this looks like a great party…would love to go, considering I’ve spent the last million years with Dick Clark, and Ryan “frick’n” Seacrest…at home..:(

  26. Eddy December 29, 2014 at 8:35 am #

    Visiting Portland for the first time to see if I want to live here. I would love to see a live show.

  27. Sylvia December 29, 2014 at 11:11 am #
