Aniana has been recording her debut album throughout 2017 (it’s almost done!) and the band is excited to get out of the studio and back on the stage!
Aniana has been seen performing in Portland for nearly a decade with multiple bands, and most recently with Funk N’ Roses, Yak Attack, the Asher Fulero Band, and Fresh Track. This band features music written by Aniana herself, hitting an array of genres (roots & dub reggae, rock, soul, and funk) that highlights her vocal prowess and sultry style. Aniana’s band features a stellar lineup of Goodfoot regulars including Brett McConnell (Shafty, Fresh Track), Darvey Santner (Goodfoot All-Stars, Asher Fulero Band) Nick Werth & Dave Dernovsek (both from Yak Attack), and a 3-piece horn section!
The Brett McConnell Lovetet is an instrumental funk/jazz project that performs original compositions by Brett McConnell (bassist for Shafty, the Asher Fulero Band, Fresh Track, Aniana, Funk N' Roses), Kyle Owen, and Kyle Smith. The group also plays fresh, danceable arrangements of jazz standards, as well as choice covers by modern jazz artists such as the Brian Blade Fellowship Band and Aaron Parks. The Lovetet opened up for Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood in Bend, Oregon in 2014 as a part of the Peak Summer Nights music series, and also features Dave Dernovsek on keyboards (Yak Attack) and Marc Hutchinson (as seen with STS9, Yak Attack). They are excited to get back together for this rare performance!
The Lovetet: 10:00-11:20pm
