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.

Shes a keeper FBSHE’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)


PEdaljets album

In June 2013, the story was tentatively about some wilfully obscure 80s underground act returning out of the black with brand new songs. Then the story changed. The Pedaljets have returned with a remarkable album, a real album, with variations on a theme—sometimes Heaven and Hell, other times Past and Present, then Love lost and Loneliness, all broken up, broken and back together again. It’s a kind of gunpowder—jagged punk occasionally shaded with delicate vocals, the variable sparseness of a dark, dank garage, and then the unexpected vicissitudes of guts, glory, and a romantic forgetfulness that’s been mixed up like saltpeter, charcoal, and sulfur. Basic chemistry.
Here’s a little of what people have been saying:  
“This cruel unjust world will likely never give this band their deserved appreciation. The romantic in me would like to think The Pedaljets don’t give a fuck. 9 out of 10.” Earbuddy
“Salvoes of high-powered melodic punk, laced with Beatles harmonies…prove affirmative and energizing with hard-won wisdom at the core.” Uncut, 8 out of 10
Vocally-driven, high-energy synth rock from the heartland
Sure, we’re spinning feisty metaphoric odes on life, love, friends, enemies, even mythical beasts, but that’s just the icing on this brand of high-energy, vocally-driven synth pop we call our own. The hooks and harmonies are free of charge.
Here’s a little of what people have been saying:
“… characteristic pop genius with deconstructive melodic sensibilities.”
“… 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-


Philistines logoTHE PHILISTINES

Interstellar psychedelic rock ‘n roll from Kansas City.
The Philistines combine an array of musical styles, influences, and abilities, with members handpicked from various factions of the KC music scene by songwriter Cody Wyoming. The result: an undeniably high caliber of moody, provocative, psychedelic, bombastic sounds.
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.
Here’s a little of what people have been saying:
“The Philistines came together with a simple agenda: Hang out together while cultivating the best possible live show. Mission accomplished, on both counts. Chalk it up to professional respect riding a particular high, sure. But sometimes musicians just fall in love. And sometimes you can hear it.”

Public Art: Paths to Satisfaction.
A four part panel discussion on the process of soliciting, selecting, installing and maintaining public art.  Our panel will cover copyright and contract issues, the one percent for art program implemented by Kansas City and others, and their experiences with specific public art projects sponsored by governments, private businesses and individuals.  Steven J. Braun, an attorney with Krigel & Krigel, P.C. who has practiced art law for 15 years, will offer “A History of Public Art in the World in Two Minutes,” an overview of current copyright and contractual issues, and act as the moderator.  Beth Nybeck and Matthew Dehaemers, accomplished artists whose work is installed as public art across the United States, will describe their experiences and hopes for the future.  Porter Arneill, an artist and the Public Art Administrator for Kansas City, Missouri, and April Bishop, the Cultural Arts Coordinator for the City of Leawood, Kansas, will review the process, documentation and contracts involved in public art projects.  We will have an uninhibited discussion of the wonderful public art that enriches our lives, and how it came to be.  Substantial time will be reserved for questions from those attending.  Reference material will be available on DVD.
