St Patrick’s Day: Grand Marquis, Old No 5s

March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 11:30 pm

$10
Grand Marquis, Old No 5s

Grand Marquis, Old No 5s

2pm: Grand Marquis

The Grand Marquis inject a vibrant relevance into their brand of American roots music while delivering a classic, timeless ‘straight-from-the-speakeasy’ sound. Versatile and buoyant, distinct and refreshing – a rhythm cocktail served by masterful musical mixologists.

Over the past 17 years they have logged more than 2000 performances, as far-flung as Seattle to South Beach Miami, but often in the midwest, where they call Kansas City home.

7pm: The Old No. 5’s

The Old No. 5s are a powerful Blues / Rock / Roots trio from Kansas City.  Brock Alexander (guitarist / lead vocals), Olie Bowden (bass / vocals), and Adam Watson (percussion / vocals) make a formidable sound with power as well as precision.  Emerging in late 2011, the group has performed hundreds of shows every year for the past 8 years — forging a diverse sound and distinct style filled with nuances of Rock, Blues, Country, Groove, and Soul.

9pm: Blues Jam Hosted by The Old No. 5’s! $5

The Westport Saloon

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.
