About Baked Goods

Baked Goods is a 5-piece band originating right outside Gotham in Merrick, New York. Their style has been compared to the Dave Matthews Band while still creatively maintaining a sound all their own. Their combination of jazz, funk, and rock and roll is a recipe for a unique sound that Baked Goods delivers in each song. Baked Goods is the brainchild of Asa Daniels (lead singer & acoustic guitar), the chief songwriter, and Dan Janis (saxophone), who helps arrange the music.

Due to the strain that college and distance puts on those in their twenties, the band has gathered a tightly-knit circle of top-tier musicians that help fill out the rest of the sound on drums, bass and electric guitar, as well as many various other instrumentalists. Born in their collective basements around 2011, these two have taken a small Garageband experiment to what is now a well-known live act that has already staked its claim as an up-and-coming force in the jam/rock/funk scene.

Above all else, Baked Goods is a riveting live act. The foundation of the band is their dedication to the music, actively pushing themselves to play a spectacular set every time they hit the stage. They have worked themselves up from clubs on Long Island, to NYC and surrounding states and up to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to play at Musikfest, where they received an overwhelming encore.

As their reputation has grown, Baked Goods has branched out along the east coast, ultimately culminating in their first official tour in the summer of 2015 that spanned 11 states and over 7,200 miles! Their music and merchandise has been spotted all across universities and college towns, such as Chapel Hill, Philadelphia, Boston, Tulane/NOLA, and more.

Baked Goods spent much of Summer 2014 in Cove City Sound Studios, recording their upcoming album One of Those Things, under the guide and direction of former Billy Joel saxophonist, Richie Cannata.

With the help of Powderfinger Promotions, the album debuted #2 on the official Relix/Jambands.com chart!
