Gooding, an American rock band, is based out of Nashville, Tennessee, United States, but spends half the year touring. Gooding, the band, began their formation when Steven (Gooding) Gooding was 12 years old and moved to Wichita, Kansas, and soon after met drummer Jesse Reichenberger. Many years later at The University of Kansas, Gooding and Reichenberger met Billy Driver, their future bass player. Since the late 2000s, they have had two fourth members, first Jenny Wood, and currently Erin O'Neill, both whom were featured on guitar and vocals.
Causes and Funding the Future
In recent years Gooding has made it a part of their tours to contribute back to the communities they have received help from in the past, from military bases to Walter Reed Hospital. In recent years, Gooding has worked to create 'Funding the Future LIVE', a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to teaching and inspiring children to become financially literate. Gooding has performed at more than 80 high schools and at the Conference of World Affairs for four years. As a result, for their contributions, they were invited to a private tour of the White House.
In April 2015, Gooding was featured in the Wall Street Journal, being praised as a "Trojan horse" of financial literacy.
The music of Gooding has been featured in more than 200 films, including Johnny Cash Walk the Line, Ice Age 2, Iron Man 2; TV shows; CSI, Portlandia, Cold Case, Numbers, The Closer, Katie, The Good Wife, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report; video games; and commercials for Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler, Marriot, Adobe, and Cisco. Their singles, "Mountain" and "Hey Hey" reached top 50 in the AAA charts.
