Seattle six-piece Good Co is the United States’ first live Electro Swing Band. That new old sound, Electro Swing combines the era of illicit booze, jitterbugging flappers, and underground speakeasies with the funky beats and the electric sound of today’s dance music. At Good Co performances it’s quite common for such things as beatboxing harmonica jams, onstage dance parties, and crowd sing-alongs to spontaneously break out. Good Co is proud to present this new genre to hep cats everywhere. Pounding dance beats are mixed with gypsy jazz guitar riffs, samples from the past turned on their head along with a live horn section make for the best sounding dance party this side of the 1920s.
The Mountain Home Arts Council will also host Good Co for an educational outreach program earlier in the day for band students at the Mountain Home High School.
Good Co community performance and educational outreach program are made possible by the Mountain Home Arts Council and are supported in part by grants from the Western States Arts Federation, Idaho Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Whittenberger Foundation, The Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, the Mountain Home Air Force Base Officers’ Spouses’ Club, Pioneer Federal Credit Union, and US Bank Foundation, as well as the generous support of the City of Mountain Home, Parks & Rec., Hampton Inn/Johnson Brothers Hospitality, Mountain Home News, El-Wyhee Hi-Lites, Winger’s, and other local business and individual patrons.
