In 2002 Singer/Songwriter Justin Keenan was dragged along to see Australian music stalwarts Weddings, Parties, Anything. Their unique storytelling through a blend of Folk and Rock inspired Justin to form The Go Set & start writing songs about his own experiences.
Melding traditional folk instruments like mandolin, bagpipes, fiddle and piano accordion with amplified guitars and drums, The Go Set put on a high energy show that is certain to get you on your feet!
The Go Set have performed in excess of 1200 gigs since its inception including pubs, clubs and festivals all over the world.
With appearances at Australian Festivals such as Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodford and Falls Festival, as well as a host of international Festivals such as Skagen Festival (Denmark), Stemweder Festival & Fete De La Musique (Germany), Rebellion Festival and Gate to Southwell (UK), Mighty Sounds (Czech Rep), Punk Rock Holiday (Slovenia) and Get Shamrocked Festival, Dublin Ohio Irish Festival and Colorado Irish Festival (USA).
Through this extensive touring the band has shared the stage with the likes of The White Stripes, The Stranglers, Reel Big Fish, Flogging Molly, The Offspring, The Living End and Wolfmother to name just a few.
