    Goose

    Any love here for the Goose?

    Been listening to these a lot on these warm summer evenings. Seem like a Grateful Dead for millenials, huge live fanbase, make a good income from uploading advertising heavy, hi quality videos of all of their shows.

    I don't hear much Dead in the music, some Steely Dan, Santana, a bit of Phish in the (long, long) Jam sections. They get compared to Phish a lot but I think their songs are a lot stronger. Some wonderful choices of cover versions dropped in there too. The gigs look like a great party and I'd probably follow them around if they came to Europe, I've been looking for an excuse to quit my job for a while!

    Their Youtube channel is here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNM...kCrjRImbUiQ3ZA with a bunch of shows to enjoy in super HD

    I'd be interested to see what you thought of them. Not prog really, but the Dan and the Dead get discussed on here and they're more proggy than them!

    Love em, I have several of their releases. I'd love to see them, but haven't heard of any shows near me

    Love Goose! Definitely more proggy than the Grateful Dead. If you get a chance to go to a gig now that concerts are starting to come back, don't hesitate. I think their music and jam style will appeal to a lot of progressive rock fans. Of all the so-called 'jam' bands since the heyday of the Grateful Dead, only Phish and Goose really appeal to me.

    Thanks for posting. I'd never heard of them, but checked out one track so far on YT, and it was excellent. More investigation forthcoming.
    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    I like their live output and they can jam well and are obviously very talented players. I'm not sure I like their compositions nearly as much as, say, vintage Umphrey's McGee or Dopapod though. Again, very talented and I get the appeal and the success they are having.
