Last night, Goose performed the final show of their debut headlining residency at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y. After four successful evenings, with debuts, jubilant sit-ins and an overall feeling of community and family united by the music of the band, the ensemble brought things to a close with a performance overflowing with appreciation.
They kicked off their first set with “Time to Flee,” then an 80s synth rendition of “Indian River,” with a jam of “Welcome to Delta” intercepted. Next came a rousing performance of “Honeybee” with the band’s good friend and mentor, Coach, on the rainstick. They continued with “Jeff Engborg” and “It Burns Within,” marking the first time they played the latter in over a year before closing the frame with a smooth “Butter Rum.”
The second set started with a brief moment of reflection as the band said, “Final set,” which was met with the applause and cheers of fans who had been visiting The Capitol Theatre nightly since Wednesday before Goose opened the second set with an unfinished but ever-catchy rendition of “Arrow.” They then played “A Western Sun” before a jam of “Into The Myst” > “White Lights.” The frame was closed with the beloved “Elmeg The Wise.”
Before their encore, Peter Anspach went down the line sharing his gratitude for the incredible crew and people at the theatre who helped make their run an objective success. With each mention, the crowd felt the genuine friendship and appreciation Anspach and the rest of Goose have for those who helped make their performances what they are. Then as one final thank you, Goose encored with their song, “The Empress of Organos.”
It’s notable that before Goose began their show, a special performance by Orebolo and a conversation with Tom Marshall and RJ Bee of Osiris Media took place at Garcia’s. A highlight from the musical segment included Marshall sitting in for a cover of Phish’s “Meat” towards the tail end of the six-song performance
