last time through denver, goose didn't even sell 500 tickets.  enter a global pandemic.  then the return of large crowds and live music and the past 2 nights goose sold 10,000 tickets at $45 a pop.  what the hell is going on here?    i'm listening now.  vocals are good for a jamband.  jams are very clean and bright.  not much darkness or heaviness.  but it's nothing that hasn't been done before.  what's your take on these guys?

Tom Marshall gave them some props for songwriting. That?s the extent of my knowledge
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I've head that they were meh at jamming but had a singer who could actually sing. That's all I know, never heard them myself.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

Listened to a show of theirs a few nights ago and enjoyed it. Got good energy and some good tunes, I'd probably see 'em if they came around here.

Goose has blown up faster/bigger than any (jam)band I've witnessed in the past ten years.  I, for one, am jealous.  :wtu:

I was an acquaintance of the drummer at Berklee but haven't met the others. What I can say is that they are talented. Far more talented, IMO, than other young jambands that have gained momentum in the last decade. The drummer rips. The guitarist rips and has a solid voice, both tonally and pitch wise.  The whole auto-tuned vocal thing they use live is definitely startling..... perhaps not my thing, but it's working for them, def gives off a "vibe" and probably helps keep the chicks in the front row.   I do feel they have a certain something that other upcoming jam-bands don't quite have.....

Their rate of success is something to be astonished by. I had a discussion with our manager today, who recently met with Goose's manger.... and it seems they are aiming higher and higher. They just played two sold out-door shows in Denver this week... are headlining the Mission Ballroom here in Denver this fall (which Trey Band played) and apparently are in discussion with First Bank Center for their next return??!?! They'e been in touch with Mohegian (yeah.... where Phish played) for more CT gigs?!?!  Not saying FirstBank or Mohegian are actually happenning but the fact that venues those size are even in touch with them is crazy to me. 

Bring in the dude!

I like em. They have decent song, good stage presence and are quite talented. I'm not obsessed with them like I was with the GD and Phish but that's probably due to my age and where I'm at in musical taste at this stage in life.

Hope your management is taking notes. I don't want to take anything away from them but I can think of a band or two that I enjoy more that I think are worthy of rising towards this level.

I've heard of Goose much more than I've actually heard Goose. But happy to offer an under-informed take, obviously. What I heard sounded like generic jamband music to me, like it was the turn of the century again. Good for them for their success though.
Is this still Wombat?

I first heard of them because of the drummer, who kills it.
I saw a vid of their Peach Fest set from 2019 and thought they were good, better than most newer bands. Some songs are good, some are kinda sappy. Some jams I really like, some, not so much. I think I would be tired of them for 90 minutes or more, but if they were in my neighborhood I just might go.

Over the years, I've seen some musicians I thought were really talented but never broke out to anything, and some who I just wonder how they got there. I think there is an element to right place - right time to a lot of this. These guys are good and were in the right place at the right time.

mbw

my take on goose is that i will never listen to a note.
