Hammond organist Joe Doria brings together some of the best musicians in Seattle to create a powerful and jaw-dropping funk and jazz sound, exhibiting a mix of stellar musicianship, seasoned songwriting and deep groove where no musical stone gets unturned. McTuff is a movin’ and groovin’ adventure, featuring the impeccable Andy Coe on guitar and the incredible Tarik Abouzied on drums. McTuff began in 2008 as an ode to jazz organ greats Jimmy Smith and Captain Jack McDuff, and has since evolved into a versatile and exciting group that has toured the nation.
McTuff has performed at Bumbershoot, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, as well as festivals and venues all over the US. The band has also held a residency at Seattle’s legendary Seamonster Lounge for over five years. Their Tuesday night show has become regular stop for local and traveling musicians including Skerik, Allen Stone, Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), G Love (and Special Sauce), Blake Lewis, Kevin Sawka, and many others.
The members of McTuff have performed and toured with an impressive list of world-renowned groups and artists including Carlos Santana, Stanton Moore, Ravi Coltrane, Bobby Previte, Michael Shrieve, Mike Stern and many others. As any goodfoot regular can tell you— don’t sleep on a McTuff show. There’s nothing better than this in PDX tonight!
