This 3 piece rock juggernaught has been tearing up the local music scene in Phoenix since 2000. GOODER is armed with catchy melodies and "sing- a-long" choruses, and will hit you like a kiss on the lips from a Mike Tyson right cross. This band hits hard; yet is as cozy as a bed of marshmallows.
GOODER was born through the integration of Scott Gavin’s coffee shop rock and Brad Nelson’s high-flying, heavy-metal basement grooves. The ambitious rockers brought in shred guru Chris Kantor to round out the trio. Together they shared a passion for loud jams and began writing the songs that laid the foundation for their success.
Set at full-speed, Gooder crashed the Tempe music scene at the infamous GREEN ROOM and instantly became a force to be reckoned with. Their high-energy live show and stage presence set them apart from other local artists. Since then, they have rocked every notable venue in the valley of the sun and, in 2007, released their first full length recording. The self-titled album represents the band's well-balanced range of pop and modern rock with emotional original tunes. It also, exemplifies what this band has been about from day one. High-energy fun and heavy rock music. The band just finished their second full-length CD and filled it with nothing but their usual top-shelf hits.
GOODER’s timeless modern rock perseveres through numerous fads, and continues to stand up with honesty and integrity.
