Jeff Engen from Audio Connections, specializing in live sound for performance venues, found the Goss to be a challenging space, one in which the HDL system met all expectations. “We knew immediately some of the challenges the space presented. The space itself has great natural acoustics for orchestras and opera, but for live music and playback, under the original tin roof, we knew we needed a good quality line array system to focus sound where we needed it to be,” explained Engen. “We knew that the Goss was planning on bringing more than plays and operas, and that they needed a system that was going to handle all of it. The HDL system rocks.”
Since the venue’s re-opening, the Goss Opera House has been able to attract regional, national, and international talent to the stage. Some highlights include booking Killer Queen (international touring Queen tribute band), alt-rockers Soul Asylum, as well as The Silhouettes from America’s Got Talent. Other recent notable events included a Ukrainian benefit with international composer Calvin Jones and Menopause The Musical (longest running musical in Las Vegas history) in 2021. The Goss also hosted HBO to film an episode for their documentary series “We’re Here”. Other acts we’ve had include Smile Empty Soul, Tantric, Blacktop Mojo and The Lonely Ones.
