The Go Ahead is a four piece, high-energy rock band straight from the gritty streets of San Francisco. They are known for their incredibly unique sound, pulling from influences such as Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Fiona Apple, and many more. Limiting their sound simply to ‘rock’ does not do the band justice. The blending of powerhouse grooves, soul-shaking bass, jaw-dropping guitar lines, and melodies packed with sheer emotion make this band an experience unlike any other.
Formerly known as Jesús and the Rabbis, the band has made quite an impact on the San Francisco Bay Area music scene. They were selected to play the debut Santa Cruz Music Festival in 2013 and have toured to Austin for SXSW week twice (2014/2015), which included playing Red Gorilla showcases and the debut Ugly Whale showcase. They are opening for national touring acts like Dilly Dally from Toronto, as well as legendary artists like Lita Ford. Big things are afoot for this talented foursome that are known for combining various genres into a driving rock force with a sultry and soulful front-woman that demands your attention.
