Not On the Goose Train Yet? Time to Hop On!

Be honest. Have you listened to Goose yet? We hadn’t. We are very late to the party, one hell of a party, in fact. This quartet from Norwalk, Connecticut, is on a rampage. They jam so hard it would take a very confident band to allow Goose to open for them. Fortunately, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong are just such a band, and the two are criss-crossing the country with 20 dates together through April, continuing tonight (February 13) at The Catalyst Club in Santa Cruz.

Goose will also sail out of Fort Lauderdale on the Rock Legends Cruise at the end of the month. After a raft of sold-outs shows in April, the Goose rocket truly blasts off. They will play Red Rocks supporting Umphrey’s McGee, and the list of festivals on their dance cards is mind-boggling: LOCKN’, Beanstalk Music Festival, Electric Forest, High Sierra Music Festival, Peach Music Festival, Levitate Music and Arts Festival, Forecastle, and 4848 Festival. More to come!

They self-describe this way:

Goose is an organic mix of Funk and Folk with touches of reggae, blues, and jazz. May cause involuntary movements of dance.

We think they might have forgotten to add jam and rock, because they excel at those as well. Goose are: Peter Anspach, guitar, keyboards, vocals; Ben Atkind, drums; Rick Mitarotonda, guitar, vocals; and Trevor Weeks, bass.

We would suggest that, if you haven’t had the chance yet, you check out Goose. Pronto. Most likely they’ll be somewhere near you!
