McTuff are a Seattle four-man band featuring Joe Doria, Skerik, Andy Coe and DVonne Lewis. Anyone who loves the power of the Hammond B-3 in jazz will get into these guys big time, especially with Doria’s skills. Add to that the saxophone work of Skerik (who has played with pretty much everyone), and the tight rhythm section of Lewis and Coe, and it’s sickness from start to finish.
The group will be playing a few dates in the Pacific Northwest this week, if you are in the area, I would recommend checking them out in the following spots:
Jan 20… Portland, Oregon (The Goodfoot Lounge)
Jan 22… Eugene, Oregon (Sam Bonds)
Jan 23… Seattle, Washington (The Tractor Tavern)
Jan 24… Olympia, Washington (The Eastside)
