The Going Goods - Rap Acoustic Live Act in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

The Going Goods Short Info

The Going Goods are a contradiction. They make hip hop for people who don’t really like hip hop, sing blues that sounds kind of happy, are an acoustic band with a beatbox percussion…
It’s a contradiction that works . Based almost slap bang in the middle of England the five piece, was formed in 2012 by four university friends and a postman.
Their debut EP, Blame it On The Week, was released the same year and found an instant audience thanks to its combination of uplifting acoustic guitar, soulful melody and easy going rap chat.
Flowing throughout is a catchiness that will have Going Goods tunes looping inside your head. This and the feel good factor that comes with their live performances has led to the band touring extensively in the wake of follow up EP, Sunshine Mantra.
Championed by Beans on Toast, support slots followed for Dizraeli and The Small Gods, Gentleman’s Dub Club, The Stranglers, Kitten and the Hip, the Boomtown Rats and even legendary dope smuggler Howard Marks.
Once described as a ‘festival curveball - an acoustic band with a new twist,” live gigs from legendary venues like The Monarch in London to Festival stages, have built a loyal fan base. The band connects with its audience in a way few others do, a band with a knack for bringing the buzz to where there was once an empty dance floor.
Plans for 2015 include a new album, summer festival dates and a European tour.
