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.
Trey Anastasio announces the release of The Beacon Jams, an all-new collection compiling outstanding live performances from his eight-week virtual residency at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre in fall of 2020. The Beacon Jams will be available digitally today, Friday, November 25, 2022; proceeds from the new compilation will benefit The Divided Sky Foundation, an initiative launched by Anastasio to finance a residential recovery program in Ludlow, VT, set to open in spring 2023.
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.
Earlier this week, Connecticut rock quintet Goose made their inaugural late night national television appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing a concise rendition of the fan-favorite tune “Hungersite.” Greeted by a massive applause from the capacity audience, the band launched into the high-octane tune, one of the leading singles from their acclaimed 2022 studio album Dripfield.
For many, Labor Day weekend always means a three-day weekend for the hard working, but for the jamband community, it always means Phish is going to blow minds and melt faces just outside the Mile High City. Although this staple has been reenacted now eleven times since 2011, this year got a little something extra: a fourth night. This attribute is something phans have been rumoring, wishing, begging, and pleading for on message boards and in conversation for quite some time and 2022 was finally the year the dream came true.
The jam rock icon Phish returned for their second three day stint in Atlantic City, NJ last Friday night, and turned the famous boardwalk into a raging dance party. The set was decorated with ocean themed songs from their vast catalog. This band loves playing in New Jersey, and found a new home at the Atlantic City Beach venue.
