BandRockJam

A jam band, a dance party, a movement. the GO show is music grown from a puree of blues, funk, and jazz. It is pleasure for the mind and the body.

Biography

the GO show, a quartet of party animals, specializes in taking the finest selections from the golden era of funk, jazz, and electric blues and blending it into a melee of improvised party grooves. Since February of 2002, this band of brothers has taken the methods of jamming from the likes of the Grateful Dead and Phish to another level. Using the formulas of jazz standards and applying them to pop tunes from throughout the last century, the GO show has created a brand new style of raw soulfulness and fully improvisational music. Often playing for two to four hours without a stop in a on-going, emotionally-intense ride, the GO show always rocks their audiences with a mix of covers, original songs, and jams which have never been heard before the moment of their perfomance. We are in the midst of recording our first full length album, and we just finished recording "the Colors album" with our side project the Winslow Family band. "The Colors Album" is scheduled to be released in March 2008!
