Comprised of a group of professional players in South Western Virginia, GOTE brings the sound of classic rock and roll to folk tunes to suit the needs of the audience.

Our biggest influences include The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, John Prine, Tom Waits, and many obscure folk singers from the 50s and the 60s.

Members of GOTE include bassist Jay Gladden, drums Matt Leonard, lead guitar/vocalist John McBroom, and lead guitar/vocalist Foster Burton.

Formed in Salem, Virginia
