A West Coast run for any band would not be complete without a stop in Sin City, and that is precisely what the self-described indie jam rock artist Goose did on October 1, 2023 at the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. This band grew too quickly to play the famed Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY, making this venue special for the Northeastern fans in attendance. Venue owner and jam rock enthusiast Peter Shapiro was on hand for the exciting occasion.
The self-described indie jam rock quintet Goose took their show to the Golden State for an incredible, almost week-long run. Stops included Oakland, Los Angeles, Dana Point, and of course, Santa Barbara on September 29, 2023, at the Santa Barbara Bowl. This show was nothing short of inspiring, as the band and crowd were both collectively feeling the California magic.
Goose returned to Detroit, MI for the first time in five years, and treated the Motor City to a honk-filled throwdown at the Masonic Temple on September 16, 2023. The two-set show included fun covers and plenty of tasty originals. Masonic Temple provided a stunning backdrop for this rising jam quintet.
Goose performed before their largest crowd to date for their debut at the lush and organic Saratoga Performing Arts Center, also known as SPAC, in Saratoga Springs, NY on July 7, 2023. This venue is a couple of hour drive from their home state of Connecticut and surely represents their home territory. Over twelve thousand of their fans showed up for what proved to be an epic performance full of jam rock and improvisation.
Goose returned to the Stone Pony Summer Stage, located in the parking lot of the famed Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on July 4th, 2023. The township decided to host their annual display on July 3rd, which forced the band to do the only thing they know: deliver a killer show full of exploratory jams and light up Independence Day in place of the fireworks.
Goose, the rising jam squad from Connecticut, descended into Asbury Park, NJ on July 3, 2023, for their first stint at the Stone Pony Summer Stage. This was not just any night, as the township of Asbury Park planned to set off a huge fireworks display on the beach behind the venue. Goose timed their second set to coordinate with the fireworks, and the rest was history as far as this band delivering a truly epic two-set show.
The second day of the Northlands Music and Arts Festival, June 17, 2023, was considerably soggier than the day prior in Swanzey, NH. Several earlier acts escaped the rain, but everyone in attendance took a bath on this day. Music festivals are rain or shine, and most fans were prepared for the slosh-fest.
Goose returned for an epic round two at the legendary Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA on April 28, 2023, complete with Phil Lesh as a special guest in the presidential suite overlooking the stage. The band knocked this performance out of the park at this well known and culturally significant venue in the Union Square neighborhood by doing what they do every night: create fresh, exploratory, and creative jams.
