About Bryan Ford & Goulet
Bryan Ford & Goulet is the live electronic-organic music collaboration between two multi-instrumentalist songwriters who have been creating music together for more than 15 years. Their sets are a continuous mix of original trip hop, mid-tempo and house music songs. Bryan switches between playing the drums and guitar. Geoff plays the Fender Rhodes keyboard and mini-Moog while simultaneously playing the bass. It is both interesting to watch and hear- their stage presence is infectious and invariably works the crowd into a frenzy.
