Wednesday, September 04 | Brady Goss

Looking for an evening of driving piano and soulful vocals in the style of Jerry Lee Lewis, with a little Eagles and Eric Clapton mixed in? Meet Brady Goss, the infectious entertainer from Wallowa, Oregon.

Brady was described from an early age as a piano phenom, and has grown into an electrifying entertainer. Those who have witnessed his live shows are awed by his formidable keyboard speed then grabbed by heartfelt vocals that are loaded with passion. Influences such as Hank Williams, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and John Mayer might characterize him as Blues, 50’s Rock ‘N Roll, Classic Country, or Classic Rock, but Brady’s own unique improvisational style makes him truly one of a kind with a style all his own.

His comfort and crowd-pleasing ability on stage is truly remarkable, yet his people-friendly, small town, regular kid, personality will convince fans of diverse musical desires and backgrounds to come along with him on the musical journey that will have everyone (and especially Brady) just having a blast.

Monday, September 09 | Blair Crimmins & The Hookers

Atlanta’s genre-blending jazz ensemble Blair Crimmins and The Hookers will bring their unique and boisterous sound to the Pacific Northwest on September 9 at 7pm.

Blair Crimmins began his current music career in Atlanta, Georgia, with a determination to bring Ragtime and 1920’s style Dixieland Jazz to new audiences. While playing small rock clubs around the Southeast he developed a sound that is at once modern while being deeply rooted in the past. Now four years, and five hundred shows later, he has toured the country playing large venues and has opened for acts such as Mumford & Sons and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section consisting of trumpet, clarinet and trombone.

Tickets are $25 for adults / $23 for seniors ages 60 and up / $12 for youth. LCCC membership discount applies!

“Blair Crimmins & The Hookers will make a jazzbo out of you. This ain’t your great-grandfather’s ragtime, and Blair Crimmins isn’t any quaint Dixieland revivalist. He’s a rock star — and Sing-A-Longs is a boisterous good time. Swing, Hookers, swing!” – James Man (Ink 19)
