We are Minstrels in Search of Merriment.
Come join in the circus.
The band is comprised of Lisa Riamondi (Lead Vocals and Percussion), Scott MacPherson (Guitar, Mandolin and Vocals), Lauren Banjo (Bass, Guitar, and Vocals), Jay Posipanko (Keyboards and Mandolin), and Greg Mueller (Drums and Percussion).
Playing selections from the American songbook along with their own material, the band performs both as an electric rock band or an acoustic group. Performances combine fun arrangements by recent songwriters like Adele, Ryan Adams, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Joss Stone with rich vocal harmonies featuring improvs reminiscent of bands like Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Phish, Dave Mathews, The Grateful Dead and Radio Head.
Nothing beats a frisky, Dancing Goat to kick up the mischief and get the party pumping.
Performance Venues include The Bitter End (NYC), Puck (Doylestown), World Cafe Live (Philadelphia), Autumn Wine Festival (Bryant Park), Maxwells (Hoboken), DROM (NYC), Make Music New York (NYC), Stone Pony (Asbury Park), Hunterdon Hills Playhouse (Clinton, NJ), Cafe 210 (Penn State), and many more.“Dancing Goats is most definitely a jam band, however, and they deserve a lot of credit for being among the jam bands that make honest-to-God song-craft a high priority.”
