To find that feel-good attitude, visit the Sandy Public Library at 6 p.m. Friday, June 7.Adding to the variety seen at the Sandy Public Library’s monthly “coffee house,” June brings a piano man unique in that he is not tied to any genre.

From an early age, Brady Goss has been wowing audiences with his versatile and personable performances.

Goss is comfortable playing blues, ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll, classic country or classic rock, but it is his inimitable style that endears him to audiences.

A quick look at the performers who have influenced him for years is telling about his versatility. Those with the most influence include Jerry Lee Lewis, Hank Williams, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Stevie Ray Vaughan and John Mayer.

But Goss is so multitalented that he can finish a jaw-dropping Jerry Lee Lewis song with his formidable keyboard speed and then follow with a soulful vocal loaded with passion and the feel-good emotions that keep fans of all ages wanting more.

This free concert, open to all ages, not only has a unique performer with an improvisational style, but Goss’ comfort and crowd-pleasing ability in the coffee house spotlight will create good feelings among those enjoying the respite.

The library is transformed into a European coffee house for two hours on the First Friday of each month from 6-8 p.m. This coming month, the coffee house will be held Friday, June 7. The Sandy Public Library is at 38980 Proctor Blvd.

Refreshments are served, and all library services are available for an extra hour on First Friday, until 8 p.m.
