On Wednesday, Goose shared a pro-shot video of their entire set opening for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ last week.
Digging deep into their covers catalog, Goose opened will the Mark Rice-penned “Mustang Sally”, popularized by Wilson Pickett in 1966. Rick Mitarotonda (guitar/vocals) led a short jam section that segued to their folk-inspired hoedown, aptly titled “Flodown”.
After Pete Anspach (guitar, keys, vocals) took a moment to thank the Arizona crowd for showing up early, drummer Ben Atkind led them into “Echo of a Rose”. Anspach harmonized with Mitarotonda’s yearning vocals while Trevor Weekz‘s basslines carried the groove.
The upbeat and ever-danceable “Madhuvan” followed. Here, a vast improv section forged several peaks before falling into “Jive I”, an original off 2016’s Moon Cabin. They segued to one of their newest releases, “Butter Rum”, before working their way into the “Jive Lee” instrumental.
