Check Out: Goose
Goose opened for 7 shows on Spafford's "For Amusement Only" tour and I'm sure I'm not the only one who was thoroughly impressed by what I saw. These guys are definitely in the "One To Watch" category and we hope to see them getting more tour dates. We can help by taking the time to listen to them and check out their shows. Here's some stuff to get you started:
About The Band Goose
Goose is a Funk-Folk band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut.
Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.
Moon Cabin - Goose's Debut Album
Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album ‘Moon Cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting loose.
