Adam Block, Natalie Cortez, and Jackson Griffith
Adam Block has been a local guitarist for 20+ years and is influenced by Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Van and it shows. He's wicked! Natalie Cortez led her Davis based band The Ultraviolets through the 90's with many great Sacto music peeps. She's back to sing for you and we're chuffed that she wants to play at the old Goose. Jackson Griffith is a songwriter that finds inspiration in simple things like flowers, housing developments, and old Lodi amongst other things. He's a sweet man. Goose-people unite!

Infinite Vastness and Fully Covered
Taylor Clark is the main sound man for Goose-city. He leads Infinite Vastness through the mires of psychedelic blues-based rock & roll. He's a strat guy and he shreds. Fully Covered is a new local cover band playing 90's alternative like Weezer and Smashing Pumpkins. Remember the good old days of music? Let's relive it!

According to Bazooka, Banjo Bones, and James Israel
According to Bazooka play catchy Americana Pop songs that blend elements of rock and roll, country, zydeco and ska into a delightfully stuck in your head sing along album. Banjo Bones plays dark Tom Waitsy Americana and he's from Puerto Rico. His new violinist is from the Eastern European country of Georgia. They make such a great mysterious sound. James Israel plays uptempo rock & blues and whimsical country. Spend the evening with us and hear some unique roots music with a bunch of bricks and beer.

"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me - like food or water." Ray Charles

Grub-dog's Birthday Celebration with Loose Engines, Alex Walker, and Jimbo, Johnnie, & Junior
Grub-dog's back from Austin and we as a community are better for it. Welcome back, and happy birthday old boy, you are an inspiration and a great friend. Hear and see one of the first performances of his new band, Loose Engines, playing rockabilly blues with a bit of country sprinkled in there. Alex Walker is now a member of the Sacramento music scene and his northwest roots bring sweet melancholy melodies and lonesome lyrics. Jimbo, Johnnie, & Junior play traditional hillbilly string music and infuse it with their wild sense of humor and creativity. Celebrate great local music with us and have a cold one!

High Low Jack and The Cheeseburger Boys

Do you like the Dead? These guys will fulfill all your Grateful Dead needs. Brian LeVene leads High-Low Jack and comes back to Sac to share his peace and love every now and then. The Cheeseburger Boys have a girl and do the jam band feel too. A Miracle - a free ticket to a Dead show that a fellow Head gives you just out of peace, love and concern.

Elijah Jenkins (Eli & the Sound Cult/Waste Money), Brian Croom (Jem & Scout), David Adams (Garble)
These guys are nice guys. Musical guys. Important guys. I cant get enough of these guys! Eli is a genuine sweetheart and blends guitars with electronic beats and synthy sounds. Brian is the bass guy from Jem & Scout and I don't think he's gonna be playing bass solos, but whatever he does I'm gonna like it. David plays bass and sings in Garble and he does it with feeling. He'll bring the feeling, but I don't anticipate bass solos here also. Sweet guys, lovely music, bricks, beer, limited seating, emotions, attraction, ears, feet... with shoes, upholstery, wood, water closets, and friends.

The Speak Low, The Triple 7's, and Emma Simpson
Indie rock at Goose-city! The Speak Low are electronic and acoustic experimental songwriters. We love that! The Triple 7's are influenced by early Pixies but they don't have a bass player. But they don't need one, they're great! Emma Simpson is a co-founder of Girls Rock Sacramento, a non profit that helps empower girls through music. We love this too! I can't stop yelling!!!!!

"There, in the chords and melodies, is everything I want to say. The words just jolly it along. It's always been my way of expressing what, for me, is inexpressible by any other means." -David Bowie

Hans & the Hot Mess and Beyond Uranium

Hans is like a baby honey badger on a hot Sacramento day. His music can kill cobras easily and he doesn't care if a cobra is deadly. He just slays like that. Beyond Uranium features great local jazz musicians especially UC Davis Professor of Music, Delbert Bump. There's gonna be a lot of bumping going on here, folks...

"I do know the effect that music still has on me - I'm completely vulnerable to it. I'm seduced by it." -Debbie Harry
