As with most things in life, the end is usually bittersweet and ripe with emotion. This was certainly the case for the eighth and final collaborative performance by the Trey Anastasio Band and Goose. For Goose, this tour was a "pinch me" moment, enabling them to play along side legendary musicians that they have looked up to.

Upstate New York was pummeled by a historic lake effect snowstorm that brought almost six feet of snow last weekend. This wasn’t the only storm in the region, as the raging infernos known as the Trey Anastasio Band and Goose brought some serious heat to Upstate Medical Arena at The Oncenter War Memorial in Syracuse, NY on November 18, 2022.

According to Merriam-Webster, to collaborate is defined as “to work jointly with or together, especially in an intellectual manner” and for music fans, we love this word. Whether it is put to good use within the members of our favorite bands or through the avenue of the surprise sit in, everyone in the audience loves a good gelling and these instances are usually what make up the fabled stories of our musical adventure. When one considers the collaborative effort through the lens of improvisational music, the end result has a giant question mark looming over it.

The dynamic duo of the Trey Anastasio Band, led by Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, and Goose flew like a red bird into Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls, NY on November 13, 2022 for the fourth of eight shows on their collaborative Northeastern Fall run. Their sets grew wings and took flight with monster sit-ins by both bands.

The jazzy big band meets jam rock side project of Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, the Trey Anastasio Band, embarked on a special eight show tour with the rising, indie jam band Goose this past week. This included a stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena, which is smack in the middle of Goose's home territory inside the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT on November 12, 2022.

Goose returned to The National in Richmond, Va last Friday night for another barn burner, and the second of a two night stand for their Fall tour opener. The weather was quite soggy in the River City, but that did not stop fans from waiting in line for hours to secure a good spot for this very sold out show.

The self described indie jam band Goose kicked off their Dripfield fall tour last Thursday night at The National in Richmond, Va with a fiery show. The sold out crowd created intense energy at this historic venue that holds 1500 people.

Goose returned to The Chrysalis at Merriweather Park for round two last Saturday, and delivered dark, raging jams for a very packed crowd. This was the second time the Connecticut based squad played in this tranquil, natural environment that contains an artistic stage designed to meld with the surroundings. This band continues to grow their fan base, as many in attendance were at their first or second show, and loving it.

Goose, the head turning indie jam rock squad from Connecticut who recently sold out Radio City Music Hall in New York City, kicked off the second leg of their stacked summer tour at The Chrysalis in Merriweather Park. Located in Columbia, MD, this was the first time Goose had played in this innovative space.

The indie groove quintet Goose released their new album Dripfield on Saturday, June 25 to a sold out crowd at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. The show was the second of a two night stand, where both nights had three sets of music including a special acoustic first set.
