Gooch and the Motion
Gooch and the Motion
Ryan "Gooch" Nelson is a completely original, one of a kind, artist with a swampy blues, country, soul sound that leaves audiences captivated. His philosophy is that the crowd, as well as the ever changing cast of professional musicians that back him, all make up "the Motion" that drives his music. Gooch has opened for acts such as Zac Brown Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers Band, and Tedeschi Trucks Band! Recently, Gooch was signed by 9-Time Grammy Winning Producer Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo to his record label, Blacbird Records.

CD Release Event! Gooch and The Motion have released their debut album, “Comin’ Home”, which is now available on iTunes!”
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 the pre-match bloc party at the Villanova Pavilion in front of 2000 people. One month later, 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.

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 as a top 12 songwriter in the SongDoor International Songwriting Contest, the Band has sold out consecutive Philly-based shows and is performing up and down the East Coast at esteemed venues like the famed Bitter End in NYC and showcasing at the Millennium Music Conference (Harrisburg, PA) and the Singer-Songwriter Showcase (Cape May, NJ).
