About the Bands:

The MGD’s: “The MGDs present a passionate blend of funk and blues powered by the soulful stylings of a music group driven to serve up an electrifying experience to the masses. The seven piece lineup includes a mix of keys and brass complemented by a poppin’ rhythm section that adds a unique flavor to the iconic Kansas City music culture. In what started as a three piece between longtime friends in 2008, the MGDs have evolved into what is now a potent powerhouse group in the high-energy music category. Influences include a variety of classic and modern sounds from New Orleans and beyond.

In addition to a host of club shows, the MGDs like to keep busy performing at festivals both at home and away. Middle of the Map, Crossroads KC Music Fest and the Coleman Hawkins Blues Fest are just to name a few. Since 2014, the MGDs have appeared annually on the Outfield Experience stage at Kauffman stadium before Kansas City Royals games. The MGDs perform in the heart of downtown Kansas City every 4th Friday at the Phoenix and every 2nd Saturday at Broadway Bistro.
The MGDs currently have 3 original albums under their belt and with a sizable repertoire of covers and originals at hand, the MGDs are available for short showcase sets or an all night long shindig.”
13 Hour Drive- “A pint of Americana, add a dash of rock, and mixed in with the flavor of New Orleans”


The Westport Saloon – “…is an American Roots Venue located in the heart of the Historic Westport District of Kansas City. Offering free live music every night of the week, this is the place to see amazing local, regional, and national talent. With a beautiful Whiskey and Tequila selection, welcoming atmosphere, and friendly staff, The Westport Saloon will likely become your favorite Kansas City stop…”

Four Roses – “It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.”
