See you there!
Hollering with all their hearts over a five string banjo and a doghouse bass, Truckstop Honeymoon live the life they sing about. Touring across three continents with four kids and a truck load of songs, Katie and Mike West tell stories about the strangeness of everyday life. Their music combines elements of bluegrass, music hall jazz and straight up rock’n’roll. Vaudevillian wit and showmanship spike their energetic live shows, while the fearless honesty of their songs touches the hearts of listeners around the world.
Cowgirl’s Train Set – 8:30pm
Cowgirl’s Train Set is a Lawrence, KS-based outfit of 7 musicians that takes traditional American music styles and combines them in an unpredictable fashion. Blend gypsy swing, bluesy boogie, bluegrass, folk balladry, pirate shanties and punk aggression together, then boil them down to brew a typical Cowgirl’s Train Set show.
Carswell & Hope – 7:30pm
From the Midwest seed-bed of indie-rock, Carswell & Hope bring vintage rock sounds and sensibilities together with big harmonies, carefully crafted textures and inventive songwriting. Songwriter Nick Carswell is originally from Ireland and has found a new home on the plains of Kansas. The tone is a blend of psychedelic, Pink Floyd interrupting Motown, channeling Van Morrison and Wilco. Think Mumford & Sons meets Sigur Ros, and Glen Hansard shows them around town.

90.1FM Presents: The Elders & She’s A Keeper - A KKFI Benefit
Saturday Dec. 6th
1020 Westport Road
Kansas City, MO 64111
2 Great shows in one night!
EARLY SHOW – $20
Performance: 7pm to 9pm
Opening act – She’s A Keeper
LATE SHOW – $20
Performance: 10pm to Midnight
Opening act -She’s A Keeper
Since forming in 1998, The Elders have set the music scene on its ear, thanks to a skillful blend of American roots rock and amped-up Celtic folk; a cross-pollination of elements that is high-octane and progressive, yet rooted in tradition.
SHE’S A KEEPER
She’s a Keeper is a five-piece ensemble based in Kansas City. Most of the members grew up together and that naturally shines through in their music and live performances. Their sound is raw & unaffected; their stage presence pleasingly unpretentious.
We at 90.1FM KKFI are honoured to work with great artists and are humbled that they are willing to give of themselves to help us in our mission.
See you at the show!

Here’s a little of what people have been saying:
Tim Finn, Music Writer for The Kansas City Star and Ink, wrote that Wednesday MidDay Medley was the “Best Place To Hear Local Music On The Radio: The place to listen to new local music and often hear performers talk about it.” (December 4, 2013)
“… deliciously catchy pop songs that are just off-kilter enough to make you uncomfortable, but with big enough hooks to drag you along for the ride.”
-Wildy’s World, December 2012-
Led by the ferocious vocals and unbridled stage presence of Kimberely Queen, Wyoming and Rod Peal send out a barrage of spaced-out, razor sharp guitars, backed by the pummeling rhythmic onslaught of drummer Steve Gardels and bassist Michelle Bacon, all tied together by the melodic tapestries of Josh Mobley’s keyboards.
–Natalie Gallagher, The Pitch / September 2, 2014
