Good Co
Seattle six piece Good Co is the United States' first live Electro Swing Band. That new old sound, Electro Swing combines the era of illicit booze, jitterbugging flappers, and underground speakeasies with the funky beats and the electric sound of today's dance music. At Good Co performances it's quite common for such things as beatboxing harmonica jams, onstage dance parties, and crowd sing-alongs to spontaneously break out.

As the United States' first Electro Swing Band, Good Co is proud to present this new genre to hep cats everywhere. Pounding dance beats are mixed with gypsy jazz guitar riffs, samples from the past turned on their head along with a live horn section make for the best sounding dance party this side of the 1920s.
Gooferman
Behold Gooferman, an ever-morphing micro circus of klown-fi and wanton circus performers built on an entirely unique bedrock of breakbeat, funk, drum & bass, reggaeton, rock, hip hop, and whirled beat, all parlayed to the audiences of the world by a new-fangled, super-styled breed of klown.

In August 2001, the gods got stoned and, among other miscues, let loose upon the Earth what would amount to one of the modern age’s most innovative, inexcusable oddities. Based in San Francisco, Gooferman originally materialized as an unsanctioned back-alley experiment in lo-brow, improvisational aural expression. Then things turned electronic; things got carbonated. This led to that, and that to this: A trip to Miami’s Winter Music Conference in 2003 pushed one too many buttons, and the gods of the Red Nose spoke: “Abandon all pretense. Gather the klowns. Fight the power.” So the klowns were gathered. The power was fought. Pretense was shoved off a cliff.

Thus, in August of 2004, Gooferman found themselves out at Burning Man, land of the truly strange and eccentric, tripping just the right amount of balls on a perfectly Technicolored, junkyard stage. The klowns’ instruments – some conventional, some not so – took on a life of their own. Things got hybridized; things got thumpity. And once the dust settled, it became plainly evident that Gooferman had undergone its own Big Bang.
