9PM: AJ McCausland
Born on the same day that Jimmy Buffett graced the cover of the Rolling Stone, music has pervaded the very essence of AJ’s being.
Immersed in the sounds of Wilson Pickett, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doobie Brothers, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Beach Boys as a child, music was, and is, a way of life.
Inspired by the songwriting of Bob Dylan, Jimmy Buffett, James Taylor and Kurt Cobain; the guitar prowess of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan; and the ensemble power of jam bands like Dave Matthews Band and Blues Traveler, AJ has honed his craft and utilized his musical talents to write songs that are a meaningful reflection, exploration and interpretation of this world we live in and to captivate and entertain audiences through the various outputs of his creativity.
Located in Kansas City’s historic Westport District, The Westport Saloon has become a midwest haven for the underground. Roots, Honky Tonk, Bluegrass, Blues, Blues Rock, Folk, Rockabilly, and that Twang you live for.
Like the settlers of Westport, we work tirelessly to bring amazing names to our stage. Over the years we have hosted acts such as Wayne “the Train” Hancock, Dale Watson, Moe Brandy, JD Wilkes, Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band, The Goddamn Gallows, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Bob Wayne and the Outlaw Carnies, Luke Bell, The Hooten Hallers, Carries Nation and the Speakeasy and so many more.
Like the settlers of Westport, we are also known for our whiskey. Overtime, and as tastes have changed, we have amassed quite the collection to keep your glass filled and you coming back. Saloons predate prohibition establishments, when drinks were uncomplicated, not pretentious and hearty. It’s alright to be heavy on the bourbon and Scotch – we don’t judge.
