Junebug is celebrating his 15th Anniversary of The Blues Kitchen on 90.1FM KKFI.
He has called up some of the very best talent in the country to put a fantastic bash!
Junebug would like to say, “I enjoy spreading the message of the blues. I also like spinning my hillbilly stories from my time growing up in Higginsville. It’s been the same since the beginning when Chuck (Pisano) and I started, ‘I’m a little country and he’s a little rock and roll. We meet in the middle for the blues and The Blues Kitchen.”
A little about the Artists performing:
Mary Bridget Davies
Tony Award®-nominated singer MARY BRIDGET DAVIES’ journey began in her hometown of Cleveland, OH in 2001 when she first started singing in local bands, and she hasn’t slowed down since.
Upon gaining local acclaim for her work in various rock bands, she was asked to sit in with Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin’s original band, with whom she would later tour) as well as legendary blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr. Her travels have taken her all around the world, including a run on Broadway in “A Night With Janis Joplin,” for which she received her Tony® nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical.”
Katy Guillen & The Girls
Pitch Award Winners and all around great blues musicians Katy & The Girls have been blowing peoples minds for years now. They just released a self-titled Album that is sure to keep the momentum on the rise.
“In the case of Katy Guillen and the Girls, their recently-released EP …and then there were three offers a trio of songs that showcases a trio of ladies who have firmly grasped the nuances of rock, blues, soul, and groove–and by “firmly grasped,” I mean they make it clear from the outset that they know their stuff.” – Michael Byars, The Deli Magazine – Kansas City
Four Fried Chickens & A Coke
We are a 12-piece band, complete with three vocalists and seven horns. We play cuts from the Blues Brothers and the Commitments soundtracks, James Brown, Otis Redding, Ike and Tina Turner, Royal Crown Review, Chicago, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Ray Vaughn, our own original songs, and many more…
We formed in April of 1997, and have been performing regularly at events and clubs in the Kansas City area.
Junebug & The Porchlights
The Best Dress Up Band in the World!
Junebug and The Porchlights are a blues band with a comedy problem. Striving for Mediocrity has been the main goal of the band for quite sometime and they hope to attain that level by 2015. Fresh off their Mississippi tour which included Morgan Freeman’s bar Ground Zero and the Juke Joint chapel, the Porchlights are glad to be home playing prestigious places such as, the Daily Limit Bar located in the Red Bridge Shopping Center and the Corder Missouri Beer Garden. Making fun of themselves before they make fun of you, that’s Junebug and the Porchlights.
