July Goosefulness...

Thanks for coming to Fox & Goose. I just wanna say that it's such a privilege to work at this crazy old pub and see all the sweet people. Sometimes they walk in for the first time and look around all fascinated, and I say to myself, "it's like I work at the Disneyland of pubs!" It reminds me that we have such a unique and fun place where variety and silly happens. Drink a beer, eat a scone, turn your omelet into a scramble, listen to the local sounds, and enjoy. Cheersburgers!

Mike Blanchard & The Californios
The F Street Stompers
Friday, July 11th

Mike plays Californicana and does it well. It's a matter of pride in the heritage of Califonia's American country and bluegrass music. Mike was the leader of legendary Sacramento rock band The Tattooed Love Dogs and now fronts The Californios with his wife Laurie. F Street are ragtime, a pinch of bluegrass, a dash of country, and a smidgen of gypsy with all the washboard bells and whistles. Goes great with a pint and a Ploughman's Repast.

City of Trees Brass Band
Saturday, July 12th
“While Certainly influenced by purveyors of the New Orleans second-line style of Jazz, City of Trees also cites less traditional acts like the Youngblood Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble as sources of inspiration- groups from the Midwest that merge brassy jazz with hip-hop. gypsy rock and even punk. The result is an expectedly funky, yet unexpectedly contemporary party, with as many as 12 musicians grooving on trumpet, saxaphone, trombone, sousaphone, and percussion instruments.”
