Gooch and the Motion
Gooch and the Motion
Self described as ‘rusted-dirt’, Gooch’s music looks toward the future by fusing a number of different genres–including rock, country, blues, and hip hop–into cohesive and moving songs. From the blues to folk to rock to hip hop to country, Gooch does it all. His passion, love and medicinal usages of music and for conveying his thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. are portrayed via the genre that’s most appropriate.

Just recently, Gooch was signed to a new label founded by 9-time-Grammy-Award-winning producer Joe ‘the Butcher’ Nicolo. His new album “Comin’ Home” is currently available for download.

Gooch has appeared on stage with The Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zac Brown Band and Robert Randolf.
Chris Paterno Band
Chris Paterno Band
The Philadelphia-based eight-piece was formed in 2015 by Chris Paterno (lead vocals, acoustic guitar). Once a solo project, the band formed after Paterno was asked by the Philadelphia Freedoms to play at the Villanova Pavilion in front of 2000 people. One month later, 9-time Grammy-winning producer Joe Nicolo saw them play at Chaplin’s (Spring City, Pa). He quickly signed them to his label, BlacBird Productions, where they began recording their debut EP.
2016 brought an accumulation of write-ups, including shout-outs by AXS, Philly Mag, Impose Mag and more. The CPB, as fans have come to call the group, made a local name for itself with performance slots at World Cafe Live, MilkBoy, and WHYY to name a few.
Bringing an energetic rebirth of Philly Soul to the stage, the band promises a night well spent for listeners and dancers alike. 2017 has proven so as Paterno was recognized by both the SongDoor International Songwriting Contest (top 12 portfolio) and the USA Songwriting Competition (1st Runner Up, SXSW Showcase), the CPB has sold out consecutive Philly-based shows and is performing up and down the East Coast and South East region, including cities like Nashville, Atlanta and New York.
