See you there!

Back at the Goodfoot – Hot Damn!

Goodfoot Goodfoot Goodfoot…  It just feels good to say the word.  By far my favorite venue in Portland, this joint has its own Hammond B3 organ for us to use.  Come and watch as people explain to their companions the intricacies of the Leslie rotating speaker!  You’ll know because you’ll see them pointing at it, then twirling their finger around in the air.  That is, IF THEY CAN STOP GETTING DOWN!!!

Argyle will be joined by Spirits in Computers, an amazing power trio based in Portland Oregon. Influenced by bands Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Yes, and Ty Segall, Spirits in Computers aims to deliver a unique blend of sounds to inspire motionless movement (aside from a jaw drop).

May 29th, 9:00

Do it.

Argyle, Zindu & Spirits in Computers · Saturday 11/10 at Alberta Street Pub

Creating a musical arc that spans from alt prog rock to deep jazz funk, this night features three local Portland bands that bring messages from the musical spheres of the wild imagination.


Argyle is an instrumental jazz funk quartet with a soulful style. Argyle’s adventurous performances stem from roots in soul jazz, hip hop, prog, Afrobeat, psychedelic rock and old school funk.

Zindu is an inventive jazz-funk band that loves to rock the jams (in the tradition of Zappa, Phish, Galactic, Umphrey’s McGee, etc.) Our groovalicious sound draws from diverse genres—including rock, funk, jazz, and world music—all especially designed to funk your groove.

Colton Joob 9 Recordings!

Greetings, Argylephiles,

Our friend Dean invited us down to Colton for his 9th annual Colton Jubilee this past weekend.  We shared the stage with Band of Comerados and Zen Hunter, two super sweet bands you should really check out.  But over and above all the free-flowing beer, open flames, and brownies, Dean recorded the entire evening, and it sounds pretty great.  So please check out these MP3s, courtesy of Dean!

Argyle & Zindu at the Goodfoot 7/11/18

Argyle is back once again to bring you the funky instrumental bangers you love! This time we’re teaming up with Portland’s Zindu to give you a double dose of groove, jazzfunk, fusion, and more! Don’t miss this humpday throwdown!

Starday Tavern April 6, 2018

Sure, you love Argyle.  You enjoy the sweet sounds of uninterrupted instrumental funk as much as the next Portlander.  But there’s something else that might just get you up and out to the Starday on Friday, April 6: Genghis the super rad bar dog.  Now I can’t promise that he’ll give you a private audience, but he has crashed the stage at least once during our gigs at the Starday.  And just look at that face!

Friday, April 6, 9:30 PM, No Cover.
