Donning matching red ski suits atop a roof adjacent to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan, Goose took to the stage just after 7 PM ET and kicked off an energetic, two-set performance highlighted by fan-favorite original tracks “Arcadia,” “All I Need,” and “Hot Tea.” Known for their uncanny ability to recreate cover songs in their signature style, while upholding the compositional integrity of the original piece, the band also incorporated covers of Vince Guaraldi’s “Linus and Lucy,” Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield,” and Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and Higher” into the setlist.
Viewers were treated to pro-shot video and clever, dazzling holiday-themed stage design by Goedde Sound and Light
, with multiple moving cameras capturing each band member in front of a breathtaking New York City backdrop.
“We are so happy to have had the opportunity to host Goosemas, especially with all of the uncertainty this year,” said Ben Atkind (Drums). “We’re so grateful so many people tuned in and donated to two organizations doing incredible work.”
Fans will have the opportunity to watch a free rebroadcast of the performance this Saturday, December 19th at 8 PM ET on the band’s Facebook
pages as well as on FANS.LIVE. Goose plans to continue connecting donations for the aforementioned organizations through December, 20th at 8:00 pm ET at www.goosemas.com
