Family, Friends and Fans Gather at Buffalo Joe’s for Kent Gooding Memorial CD Release Celebration
With music in the air, Buffalo Joe’s was crowded with family, friends, and fans as the Kent Gooding CD release celebration took place. Since his passing last year, Kent Gooding left behind a trail of musical melody. The 13 track album entitle “The Goat & Kent Gooding” was beautifully produced by Farm to Market Records. Hot off the presses, they were going fast as the day of music rolled on. Inside the album it reads “This project was an evolving display of Kent Gooding’s musical genius and vision. The eclectic styles that compose this recording demonstrate his overall love and appreciation of music. Although he was not able to fully complete the project, his musical friends & family have done their best to present it in a way that we feel he would have appreciated. This CD is dedicated to his friendship and lasting memory.”
Throughout the day the stage was set for a lineup of local greats. Zack Jones & the Backbones, Billion Dollar Blues Band, The Draggin’ Man Band, Cuthand (3/5th’s of Post Oak Savannah), Pearl Street Riot, and Cas Haley all plugged in on the outside stage for an electrified night of memories. The music mellowed out and continued on the inside after 10pm with a talented acoustic trio consisting of Michael O’Neal, Shad Blair, and Travis Brink. Buffalo Joe’s Pub was tingling with nostalgic good vibes. Coming together as a family in celebration of this album and making more unforgettable memories was priceless. It was an honor to have known him as a friend, father, husband, son, and troubadour. Miles and miles of highway connected all of Kent’s beloved while time seemed to stop with every melodic note through the speakers.
I would like to personally thank everyone involved in the making and releasing of this timeless record.
