Piano phenom to perform at Pendleton Eagles Lodge

<p>Brady Goss, who is known for his piano prowess, will perform Saturday at the Pendleton Eagles Lodge.</p>

A wizard on the piano, Brady Goss tickles the ivories with incredible speed, finesse and dexterity.

Early in his career, the 2008 graduate of Wallowa High School played all over Wallowa County. These days, Goss plays at fairs, festivals, cafes and wineries — crisscrossing across the Pacific Northwest and beyond wowing audiences with his energetic style and charm.

In addition, Goss has traveled to Memphis, Tenn., where he recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis’ band members. The experience was exciting for the 24-year-old, who grew up watching a concert performance of Jerry Lee Lewis recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon, in London.

Goss will play Saturday from 7:30-11 p.m. at the Pendleton Eagles Lodge, 428 S. Main St. The public is welcome and there’s no admission charge. Dinner will be available for purchase.

Although he has played larger venues, Goss enjoys the intimacy of playing for smaller audiences.

“It gives me a chance to look into the eyes of everyone in the room as I’m entertaining them,” Goss said. “I like to see the crowd react to the music because, like most entertainers, I feed off that.”

Legendary session musician Roland Janes, who frequently recorded with Lewis, had positive words about Goss’s potential — comparing his talent to that of Lewis.

“This kind of talent if very rare and only comes on the scene once or twice in a lifetime. For me, this is the second of two,” Janes wrote in a letter on Goss’ behalf.

For more information about Saturday’s performance, call 541-278-2828. The musician’s website is www.eaglecapmediaproductions.com/brady.
