Goose — Rick Mitarotonda [vocals, guitar], Peter Anspach [vocals, keys, guitar], Trevor Weekz [bass], Ben Atkind [drums], and Jeff Arevalo [vocals, percussion, drums] — fluidly traverse genres with head-spinning hooks, technical fireworks, and the kind of chemistry only possible among small town and longtime friends. Following 2016’s moon cabin, the Norwalk, CT quintet quietly took flight, playing countless shows during their ascent while slowly and steadily amassing a nationwide following.

The end of 2017 saw the band welcome Peter Anspach on guitar and keyboard – a pivotal moment that solidified the group’s core lineup. Months of relentless touring prepared them for a string of milestone festival performances during the summer of 2019, most notably defined by a storied performance at The Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA. The band’s subsequent pro-shot video gained significant traction, highlighting the existing catalog of content compiled over the previous two years.

With increased buzz came increased demand. One by one, Goose sold out each show of their fall 2019 headlining tour and sold out last minute performances at both Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg in January 2020.

Fall 2020 saw a welcome return to live performance with a slew of sold out drive-in shows throughout the Northeast, Midwest, and Mid Atlantic. Propelled by seemingly unstoppable momentum, the band concluded the year with their sixth annual Goosemas holiday concert, an epic live stream from a rooftop at Rockefeller Center.

Shenanigans Nite Club, released in June 2021, encapsulates the band’s rise. The nine track project is an ode to oft-forgotten vestiges of Goose’s experience, both personal and collective. Bestowing deserved éclat on the emergent musicians, the album debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top New Artist Albums chart. The subsequent summer tour was highlighted by a pair of sold out shows at Denver’s Sculpture Park, and FRED: The Festival, the band’s own weekend event at the LOCKN’ farm in Virginia.

In January 2022, Goose celebrated the announcement of their inaugural Radio City Music Hall performance with the release of a new studio single “Borne”. Ruminating on the complexities of artistry, the song grapples with the self-doubt that emerges as a product of the creative process. A sanguine take on a common artist’s dilemma, the charming track is a reminder to all of us to keep pushing forward.

    Man, Goose THROWS down! If you haven’t heard any of their live stuff you gotta check it out before listening to one of their albums. I have never seen them live but I have listened to a couple of their shows on and I’d love to dance to one of their 15+ minute tunes!
