Goose Rocks Suwannee Rising Debut

In fact, this wasn’t just the debut of Goose at Suwannee Rising Music & Arts Festival, it was their first time playing at the venerable Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.


Goose are: Rick Mitarotonda [vocals, guitar], Peter Anspach [vocals, keys, guitar], Trevor Weekz [bass], Ben Atkind [drums], and Jeff Arevalo [vocals, percussion, drums].


This audio recording was made by outstanding archivist Butch Almberg. The feature image by Bryan Murphy Photography is from the band’s Facebook page Gooseband.

[Before you send a message about the group’s spelling of the Jorge Ben composition made famous by Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66, “Mas Que Nada” is correct.]
