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.
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.
The Basement Cats
The Basement Cats
It's the sound you'd imagine when you see the needle fall, when you hear the scratch of the record. A sound that combines the raw noise and energy of 60's garage rock with the melodic and less abrasive nature of modern indie rock. A sound that harkens back to an era in which rock and roll came from groups of friends coming together to learn how to accomplish something, not as individuals, but as a band. It's a sound that The Basement Cats, a group from Western Massachusetts, have been perfecting over their time together. This sound, coupled with The Basement Cats' entertaining live performance, results in a band that proves that, even in our modern age where trends come and go, rock and roll will never die.
