Swimmer

Swimmer is an experimental rock-fusion quintet based out of Burlington, VT. Their music transcends convention by fusing the band’s roots in rock, funk, jazz and electronica to create a unique and powerful sound. Conceived in 2014 at New Hampshire’s Plymouth State University, Swimmer has cultivated an intimate fanbase through captivating composition and distinct live performances. Their high-energy performances feature an emphasis on improvisation and spontaneity.

Swimmer has shared the stage with renowned touring acts such as Turkuaz, Consider the Source, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Main Squeeze, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, lespecial, & many more.

To quote a fan, “Their trancey soundscapes are beautifully contrasted by their knack for progressive twists and turns, as well as undeniably deep grooves.”

Goose

Goose is a Funk-Folk 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, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. 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.
Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album ‘Moon Cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting loose.
