PENDLETON — The local party of the year — at least the one that ends 2013 and starts 2014 — will feature two high-energy music groups Dec. 31 at Wildhorse Resort & Casino.
The “All That Glitters” New Year’s Eve celebration will have two venues.
The Carnival Party will be in the Wildhorse Sports Bar, with the band Patton Leatha playing hip-hop, R&B, Motown funk and rock. The party starts at 8 p.m. and the music and dancing will begin at 9 p.m.
The BrickHouse Show Band will start at 9:30 p.m. in the Wildhorse Rivers Event Center. The band is known for terrific entertainment, costumes, showmanship, energy and a dance music mix that spans decades. The show performs at large events throughout the Northwest and Canada.
Patton Leatha performs regularly as one of the top bands on the lounge circuit at gambling casinos all over the western United States. The band, with its recently released album “Treasure,” is now at the point of expanding its horizons by touring the entire United States and internationally.
The band “makes its audiences wide-eyed and mesmerized at every one of its live performances,” according to Lounge Renown Records, their recording company.
The eight piece BrickHouse Show Band was formed by husband-and-wife team Lee and Brooke Witt.
He was a piano-playing child prodigy who at age 6 played with Louis Armstrong, and over the years has jammed with likes of Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Paul Butterfield.
She is a Washington State University graduate, dancer, piano and oboe player and vocalist who has performed as a backup singer for such musical legends as Peter Tork (The Monkees), Chris Slade (AC/DC), Alan White (Yes), Liberty DeVitto (Billy Joel Band), Richie Castellano (Blue Oyster Cult), Mungo Jerry, Jimy Sohns (Shadows of Knight), Gretchen Christopher (Fleetwoods) and Koko Powell (Spencer Davis Group).
BrickHouse’s repertoire includes theme shows and music ranging from the Roaring ’20s to World War II-era USO shows to ’70s “Saturday Night Fever” disco music to wild-and-crazy ’80s songs to current hits.
