Good Ol' Goats at The Royal
Sunday, July 13, 2014
Our favourite band is coming back to the Royal!
They have been causing quite the uproar in the music scene not just in the Kootenays but all over BC!
These young folks sure know how to put on a GREAT show with amazing rhythms and lyrics that will make you dream!!!
Here is some more info!
Theo Moore and Angus Liedtke, friends since early primary school, were both experimenting with
different musical genres in Liedtke’s garage.
They decided they wanted to try folk music. Theo had shown Angus bands such as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Avett Brothers and more. So they thought they should get some more people to jam with.
Theo knew of lead singer Nolan Ackert and suggested to Liedtke that we bring him to a jam. Liedtke says, “We got Nolan to sing us a song and we were amazed by the unique voice Nolan had.
Right there, the spark became a flame and we made Nolan our lead singer.” They soon added experienced fiddler Angus MacDonald to the mix—a combination that was enough to secure the newly named Good Ol’ Goats a spot in a local talent showcase.
The reception was overwhelming, and shortly after, they brought singersongwriter Joelle Winkel and drummer Julian Bueckert into the fold. Angus explains, “We were hesitant to bring him in, we thought he was too good for us. We knew that he liked playing heavier stuff and we thought he wouldn't have liked it but he did and that made us happy”.
