Goose (organic mix of Funk and Folk with touches of reggae, blues, and jazz.)
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.
Cold Lazarus (psychedelic rock, soul, funk fusion)
Cold Lazarus is a fusion four-piece that melds funk, psychedelic rock, reggae and soul with indie-style vocals and introspective lyrics. Officially formed in Jamestown, NY, in early 2017, the group quickly launched into its first year with the release of its four-track All Alone EP which was followed up with dozens of shows in and around Western New York. Among the band’s more notable performances are a shared bill with Smackdab and Jim Donovan and the Sun King Warriors at the Kings Rook Club in Erie, PA. An appearance at the 2017 & 2018 Night Lights Music Festival, along with support dates for Chicago’s Mungion and Maryland based band LITZ has solidified Cold Lazarus as Western New York’s #1 band to watch in 2018. The band caps off its one-year anniversary with the release of their self-titled debut album Cold Lazarus, which showcases the band’s diversity and staple songs in their ever-evolving stage show.
