THE MUSIC: CityGoat’s potent brand of roots-rock is distilled with country, blues, folk, jazz, funk and at least 30 seconds of disco in 3/4. Infused with quirky, catchy songwriting and a raw dynamic musicianship, CityGoat’s unique blend of down-n-dirty rock is a tonic for the soul. Whether they’re turning a traditional blue-grass tune into driving blues-rock, bringing new life to a classic James Gang song, or dropping hints of latin-jazz or reggae into a jumping country-rock original, their shows are always a finely blended cocktail of dancing fun and soaring tunes Americana style.
THE BAND: The roots of CityGoat stretch back to 1994, when in the middle of a deep, alcohol fueled conversation Erik Santos (bass) said to Daniel Worley (guitar, vocals), “Hey man, let’s start a band.” Finally, in 1999, after Erik returned from Pennsylvania, the first sputtering incarnations of CityGoat were born… through countless personnel changes, reformations and band names, the early songs and their musical partnership survived. Then in mid-2003, while recording some demos of original songs, Dan and Erik began working with the jazz/rock keyboardist Neil Donato on what would eventually become CityGoat’s first album, When Goats Fly. After drummer Mike Gabelman joined the band during the summer of 2004, CityGoat began gigging regularly in Michigan and Northern Ohio, flooring audiences at The Blind Pig, TC’s Speakeasy, The Ann Arbor Art Fair, Small’s (in Detroit), The Ypsilanti Heritage Festival, Papa Pete’s, The Riverside Arts Center, The Village Idiot and many more with their high-energy roots-rock shows. CityGoat released their second album, Can of Worms, in December 2005, solidifying their sound and widening their audience. Once Upon a Time, a single from Can of Worms, has, as of this writing, become a finalist in the acclaimed 2005 International Songwriting Competition, drawing the attention of the music industry (the winners will be announced in March 2006).
