Formed in 2008 as an ode to jazz organ great Jack McDuff, the three-part funk revival outfit McTuff are making some of the most jaw-dropping jams in their hometown of Seattle, or anywhere for that matter. The group is comprised of Hammond organist Joe Doria, guitarist Andy Coe and drummer Tarik Abouzied, and together the tightly-knit trio have been getting crowds grooving and moving at huge festivals and tiny clubs alike, always pumping out high-energy and exceptional musicianship.
Tonight and tomorrow, McTuff bring their stuff to Sonoma County, performing at Zodiacs in Petaluma this evening, and moving up the road to Bergamot Alley in Healdsburg for a Friday night blowout. The band will be playing a lot of selections off their latest release, 2015’s “Volume 3: The Root.” Click on the track below to get a feel of the smoothly addictive melodies the group has to offer and get out to the clubs for some jazzy fun.
