After several years of being friends, Howard, Landon, and Tim decided to take the all-night jam sessions from the garage and see how far they could go playing the music they love. And thus MAHAN (may-han) was born.
This is a blues-rock band to the core with a style that can only be described as “Roadhouse Rockin’ Blues.” Stylistic influences range from T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Miles Davis all the way through Motley Crue, The Winery Dogs, and Led Zeppelin. The music is based in the blues, but doesn’t really stop anywhere!
What to Expect- Live shows are generally tailored to the venue or event to get the best result. While normally an electric band, depending on the venue MAHAN has an acoustic show as well. The band and the music is a show for the people. The guys put everything they have into making sure the music is fresh and every listener has a good time. For an introduction to the music, check out the Facebook videos, SoundCloud page, and the YouTube channel. (Or just buy the album!)
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.
