Americana artists, The Blue Goats, take their name from a once popular Scottsdale Arizona pub where some of the band members first performed many years ago. Founding member John Laman (singer-songwriter, acoustic guitar, and harmonica) started the band in 2009 to showcase his original material. Their playing style runs the gamut blending Country Rock, Folk and Bluegrass. They play original material, as well as, carefully selected classics from other genres performed with their own unique arrangements.
Currently driving the band into high gear are Aaron Laman on mandolin, Kellin Whitmer on lead guitar, and Dustin Raymond on electric bass.
