Real Name:
GOODING is originally a solo project of Steve Gooding, then it became a full band.

GOODING is soul-stirring, animated Rock ‘n’ Roll from the plains. With over 1,000 shows in 160 cities under their belt, this Nashville-based/Kansas-bred four-piece is by far one of the hardest-working bands in America.

The band – which includes Gooding (Guitarist/Singer/band namesake), Erin O’Neill (guitar/vocals), Jesse Reichenberger (drums) and Eric Santagada (bass) – blasts a majestic, soul-stirring indie rock with soaring harmonies and blazing guitars – infused with the ghosts of Blues and Americana. Their live shows have the confident energy and heart-on-your-sleeve emotion that echo the closeness and passion of these longtime friends.

Playing to passionate audiences, lead guitarist/singer GOODING tears up the stage, leaving sticks and strings all over. One of Gooding’s signature moments on stage is playing two guitars at once. GOODING’s relentless touring and honest interaction with their fans has enabled them to build their following brick-by-brick over the years without the support of a major label.

Gooding’s music has been placed on the DVDs of Iron Man 2, Walk the Line, Ice Age 2, as well as in commercials for Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler. Their efforts have now caught the attention of several sponsors, including Financial Advisory Group Raymond James, who have teamed with GOODING to perform their music and talk to high school students about financial literacy.

Says Gooding, “The band has paid its dues with stolen gear, vans breaking down and catching fire, cooking ramen in the coffee pot at Motel 6, all night drives through black ice and tornados, shows with broken bones, no sleep, and no clean clothes. Each and every setback only made us more of a family. A real band was made to play live on the road, and this extended family was made to have their mettle tested to get through anything together. Our efforts have allowed us to slowly and naturally become who we are, and amass a catalog of music and dedicated fans that are the core of everything we do.”

The band has recently collaborated with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Maroon 5, O.A.R., The Replacements, and Train) on their next album.

Besides being a ferocious live performer and a relentlessly-prolific songwriter, Gooding feels that making music and being in the public eye serves no purpose if it’s not serving the greater good.

The band has played in the 48 continental states in the USA, western Canada, and recently toured the United Kingdom.

Gooding’s support for the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has afforded him the opportunity to be an honorary committee member on a short list that includes talents such as Woody Harrelson, Alec Baldwin, and Tobey Macguire.

Gooding was chosen five times to speak at the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO. The Conference, originally founded in 1948 as a forum on international affairs, chooses only 100 panelists from around the globe per year. Previous panelists have included Eleanor Roosevelt, Patch Adams, and Ted Turner. Gooding was also a speaker/panelist at the SXSW.
