Our guest this week is the one and only Goose! Goose is an indie-groove band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass and Ben Atkind on drums. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.

We hang out and talk about coming together as a band, lessons they've learned through being on the road, translating a live sound into something memorable in the studio, their rise in popularity and how it's affected them, and a whole bunch more! Make sure to check them out on Nugs.net!

Rank #13: Episode 136 - Living A Beautiful Life With Steve Kimock

Podcast cover
Read more

We're honored this week to have the one and only Steve Kimock as our guest! While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. Instead, through the years, he’s explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him at the time, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion.

Threaded through this expansive and highly nuanced musical landscape is Kimock’s signature sound, the prodigious product of his ability to articulate crystal-clear tone, melody and emotion into intricately woven music crafted with technical brilliance. His passion and devotion to performing live is matchless, and his unparalleled ability to embrace and capture his audiences musically is the stuff of legends.

We talk to Steve about his journey in music, finding solace in 'something different', the experience of the music, what it feels like to play music with his Son, the Beat Generation, and a ton more!

Rank #16: Episode 55 - Neal Casal Takes Us Around The Sun

Podcast cover
Read more

Continuing our High Sierra Music Festival interviews with the one and only Neal Casal!!! We sit down with this legendary master of the groove and talk about what it's like to create 5 hours of original music on the fly... and then be asked to do it again, walking the line between playing someone's music and doing something new that feels familiar, and a whole lot more.

Circles Around The Sun explore new horizons on the band's upcoming double album, Let It Wander. It's the first new music from the quartet since their acclaimed 2015 debut, Interludes For The Dead.

LET IT WANDER will be available August 17 on CD for $24.98. A limited-edition vinyl version of the double album will be released the same day for $39.98. All of the music will be available via digital download and streaming services.

Guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall (his bandmate in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood), bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy recorded seven instrumentals for LET IT WANDER earlier this year at Castaway 7 Studios in California.

Originally, Circles Around the Sun (CATS) was only supposed to record some Grateful Dead-influenced instrumentals to be played during the set breaks at the Dead's "Fare Thee Well" concerts. But the response was so positive, and the band was having so much fun making music together, that they all agreed to keep it going.

Rank #17: Episode 119 - A Circle Around The Sun: In Memory Of Our Brother Neal Casal

Podcast cover
Read more

This week we sit down as a Family in tribute to Neal, and share our memories and thoughts on the passing of our Brother. So much joy, incredible music, and sweet vibrations came from this singularly talented and soulful individual. His passing rocked our community and serves as a reminder of the preciousness of life, the impression we’ve made on others, and the importance of reaching out our hand if our cup is empty.

This is a celebration of the man who touched our lives and made the rhythms that rock our souls in bands like The Chris Robinson brotherhood, Circles Around The Sun, The Cardinals, Ryan Adams, and Hard Working Americans, as well as a call to all those out there who may be hurting or in need of a little Family love.

We love you Neal. Sail on home Brother…..
