October is good at the Goosey!

We here at Goose Music headquarters believe that once the heat wave is over and the rain comes, all the good music will come back to Gooseland. And sure enough, October is sounding great, so naturally we should expect lots of rain. This is, of course, just a hypothesis, but I'm pretty sure that's how it worked last year and the year before and the year before... Anyways, you should come drink some beer with us and listen to great music at your wonderful little pub.

Update: Last night's show with Daryl Black and Gillian Underwood was phenomenal and it rained. Daryl's set was a lesson in true fun and inspired entertainment. What a great pleasure to watch him captivate everyone with his incredible wit and talent. You may be able to catch him here again in December...

Every Wednesday is Northern Soul and Cornhole, our weekly night of classic rare soul music, rocksteady, northern soul, garage, and the super fun bag toss game, Cornhole! 8pm/free Cornhole usually starts at 10pm after people have finished eating. Looks like Wednesdays may become board game night too. I'll keep you posted.

Delta is two or three or four or six dudes playin' tunes. Sweet country infused bluegrassy music. Geoff is from Oaktown and writes songs about things going wrong. His full baritone voice conveys a sense of loss and regret. Have a Welsh Rarebit and wash it down with a Pimm's Cup. Mmm-mm good.

Old Cotton is led by the fearless Mike Fleming and they do good old rock & roll. Sometimes Mike dresses like Elvis. Sometimes he doesn't wear a shirt. Either way this is a rockin' good time.
