July's Music at the Goose is hot!

Stay cool and have a pint at your favorite pub. Here's what the musos are doing.

On Thursday the 5th of July, it's Justin Brown from New Jersey playing acoustic soul. He's got sweet songs and a great voice, so you should come check him out! Also performing we have Virtual Campfire on their S'mores Across America Summer Tour from LA and they are an extremely fun bluegrass band. Free live music at the Goose!

The 6th is a night of jazz, r&b, and pop music that proves that there's certainly some eclectic and creative music happening in this old not so quiet town. The Signifiers are a powerhouse of local talent with the beautiful and sultry Naked Nathan Beier on drums, Ryan Offield on upright bass, and Colin Randau on keys. They play colorful instrumental jazz. Emily Kollars is a supremely soulful singer and a bright new talent. Kilo & Pepper feature members of the Visceral and play excellent acoustic pop.

Saturday, the 7th of July we've got David Houston and Strings, Moetar, and Moosdrool. Moosdrool hails from Placerville and play jazzy jam rock and Moetar do high energy female fronted prog rock. Totally out of left field, but always a treat we have David Houston with his sweet pop songs laced up with a beautiful string section. Don't miss this ultra eclectic show and enjoy our new patio and bathrooms!

On Wednesday July 11th and 25th, it's Steve McLane. Steve has been playing at Fox & Goose since the early days. His smooth voice and excellent guitar playing create the atmosphere we can only hope will last forever. Playing classics from Neil Young to the Beatles to Bob Dylan, he always leaves us wanting more, and its always a mellow way to spend a Wednesday evening with a pint and a pasty.

The 12th of July we feature music by Denver Saunders, Telemetry, and Scheming Scarlet. Denver is a dynamic singer songwriter with catchy indie rock songs and a relaxed positive style. Telemetry is a heavy alternative band, and here we see them stripped down and exposed in a quieter acoustic setting. Scheming Scarlet is a female fronted indie rock band and they're doing an intimate acoustic set to open the show. Come enjoy quality local original music for free!

Friday the 13th is all good at Fox & Goose this July! Check out Goldener rocking out with Family Photo and The Water District (LA). Family Photo are a young local indie band with ultra syncopated rhythms, eclectic instrumentation, and intelligent lyrics. The Water District bring their melodic light-hearted pop music to make this a solid night of original music. Have a pint and a nutburger!

On The 14th the Goose features blues, soul, and r&b music by Sly Park and Stone Iris. Keir Wilkinson fronts local blues and rockin' soul band Sly Park. They are a fairly new band about town and are really fun to watch. And all the way from Edmonton, Alberta, Stone Iris is a party band on tour playing a wide range of styles, but all centered around good grooves. Come hear Canadians play everything from hooky pop music to sun-bleached reggae to hip-hop and rap.

Wednesday, July 18th, come out to Fox & Goose's Traditional Irish Jam Session, hosted by Laura Tjoekler.  Everyone is welcome and you can grab a pint of Guinness and just listen, or bring an instrument and join in!  Have an Erin Go Bragh(Ireland Forever) sandwich with corned beef, melted swiss cheese, and grilled onions on rye, served with chips.

July 19th, it's The Mike Justis Band. Mike has played at the Goose for many many years.  And his brand of classic acoustic music is always refreshing. Featuring Kathy Barwick, Mike Justis, and Steve McLane you're always in for some great Americana, Blues, and Classic Folk music.

Friday, July 20th, come enjoy an amazing San Francisco band called The Family Crest, along with our friend Rich Driver. The Family Crest play organic, orchestrated music that is super unique with many string and wind instruments along with driving drums and vocals. They are often compared to Arcade Fire. Rich is a cherished local talent performing California roots pop kinda like Jeff Tweedy or Ryan Adams. 19 beers on tap!

The Steve Bisel Memorial Concert will feature sets by some of Steve's bands. All proceeds will be donated to a local charity in Steve's memory. Full Melt and Northbound Train play songs from Talking Heads to The Grateful Dead with everything in between. Forgotten Passage will perform their original psychedelic era music with samples of Steve's keys. Come remember our sweet friend Steve Bisel and enjoy the music that he was a part of.

After the Pub Quiz on Tuesday, July 24th, come out and enjoy a very special summer show. Reggie Ginn, The Breaking Yard, Irene Irene, and Miles Orion Butler will be breaking the rules of Sacto mid-week shows. The Breaking Yard is the integrated creativity of songwriters Mel Woodall (Colour) and Stephen Baker (St. Nathan's Holiday). Reggie Ginn is known for her passionate and heartfelt music, and her fancy keyboard work. Support creative music and have a pint of lager.

Thursday, July 26th it's Amy Bleu and Element of Soul. Amy Bleu is from Portland and brings her sweet acoustic ukulele and folk roots blues to the Goose. Element of Soul is a reggae influenced band with a summer sound that will make you smile and drink lots of beer. Another fine free show at the Fox & Goose.

On Friday, the 27th we have Hans Eberbach and Jay Shaner. Jay has been playing at the Goose forever and never fails to break your heart with songs of lost love and dark Americana ballads that will draw you in with sophisticated lyrics and melodies. Hans is the dynamic leader of the Nibblers and brings his high energy solo set to the pub. Have a light and refreshing Trumer Pils and hear Sacto's finest songwriters.

On Saturday the Dog Town Serenaders, Mandolin Avenue, and The Scarves celebrate the Time Travelers Weekend from Old Sac Gold Rush Days Festivities at Fox & Goose. A night of old timey music, bluegrass and dreamy pop. Come round the pub for great music, good food, and 19 beers on tap.
