Show Info

The Brett McConnell Lovetet is a jazz/funk/rock group led by bassist Brett McConnell (of goodfoot staple Shafty – A Tribute to Phish). This year, Brett has decided to change things up a bit by adding bassist Jon Shaw to the lineup while playing lap steel guitar himself. Influenced by the works of Bill Frisell and Brian Blade, Brett is aiming to add more of a folk element to his originals, arrangements, and fellow band mates’ compositions. This performance, however, will aid to the dance-addicted goodfoot crowd while still providing jazzy nomenclature. The Lovetet plays first this evening, so come early (but stay late!). Trio Subtonic evolved from a long-time collaboration between keyboardist Galen Clark and drummer Jesse Brooke. After spending the winter of 2005 abroad studying music, Jesse and Galen returned to Portland and teamed up with bassist Bill Athens. The resulting mix of groove-based improvisation, instrumental funk, and rhythm and blues began to develop as the members continued to write and freelance in projects of various genres in the Pacific Northwest and tour on both coasts. The trio recorded their first album “The Aqueous” in 2007, following it with the acclaimed “Cave Dweller” in 2009. With the latest release of “I’ll Meet You There Tomorrow” in 2012, it has become apparent that their unique brand of jazz is becoming recognized both for listening and for thumping the floor.$6
