Goosepimp Orchestra is an 8 piece psychedlic latin/funk dance party. Driving elements from all over the musical spectrum into an unrelenting cosmic force, Goosepimp's live performances have garnered them a reputation for stirring crowds into a dancing frenzy. Smothered with high energy and seasoned with a carefully crafted balance of experimentation and groove, their grassroots mentality has been captivating a devout and growing fanbase, packing venues just to get their fix of the Goose.
The first footprints of Goosepimp's musical journey can be traced back to the turn of the millennium, when childhood friends Mike Cantor and Bob Greel stumbled upon a chemistry that culminated their admiration for elements of various dimensions. The two met bassist Dave Pelletier, who's bottom end backbone developed ideas into all night jam sessions. Through Dave, came his brother Adam, providing steady rhythm on guitar. After recruiting Josh Filgate on Trombone, Jon Albertelly on Trumpet, and Seth Bailin on Saxophone, the band's presence was screaming with a sharp horn section. By adding Cantor's hometown friend Joe Calabrese on the drums, a complete line-up was set in place to catapult Cantor and Greel's original chemistry into the 21st century.
In the three years that the current ensemble has been playing together, they have established their presence in and around their home of Boston, made numerous festival appearances throughout the Northeast, and maintained a steady gigging regiment up and down the East coast. Fueled by their trademark ability to morph themselves through the boundless realms of the sonic stratosphere, the development of the original concept has transcended into a sound that is danceable, funky, tight, and above all, in tune with their surrounding community.
Their debut full length album, aptly entitled The Biggest Bang, captures ten raw glimpses inside the brainwork of an entrancing spiritual experience that has been sweeping audiences off their feet. Fans of funk, world music, jazz and psychedelic rock alike are given the opportunity to experience what happens when a powerful energy triggers a collision of groove and gluteus maximus.
SEED is the funky new sound growing strong roots in Eastern Connecticut since 2009. This emerging four-piece boasts a dance party packed with exciting, new, genre-bending sounds we like to call Progressive Funk! Seed has found a sound that blends the modern day psychedelic rock, with a funk/fusion of saxophone fx and electronics. These songs cover the full spectrum, drifting from the intricate, mixed-meter sounds of Umphrey's McGee, to the catchy head-bobbing horn lines of Lettuce and Maceo Parker. Seed is Travis Pihlman(guitar), Chris West(bass and vocals), Derek Joly(sax, keys and vocals) and Mike 'House' Aubin(drums).
