Kansas City, KS
Kansas City, Kansas rests at the far northeastern edge of the state, close to the Missouri border. Often mistaken for Kansas City, Missouri, Kansas City, Kansas is elusive to many out-of-town folks. What sets it apart from many urban areas is its large number of green spaces such as Wyandotte County Lake Park and the Kaw Point Parke, where the Lewis and Clark Expedition camped in 1804. In addition to its natural landscapes that are geared towards family fun, Kansas City is known for their NASCAR races at Kansas Speedway. Although Kansas City, Kansas’ music scene does not render as much attention as Kansas City, Missouri’s music scene, there is still music being made in the small city.

Kansas City’s venues specialize in covers, which brings familiar, popular music to listeners
It is no secret that live music is an effective, fun, time-tested way for businesses to get customers in their doors. It adds to the entertainment of what any existing venue brings to the table. Local draft beers taste better with a classic rock band playing in the background. Tapas taste better when sultry blues or R&B melts behind microphones. Outdoor activities become day-long affairs when there is a show to see during breaks. Craft sales are more community-oriented when local bands greet patrons. Although musicians usually prefer to deliver their own original work, businesses prefer the universality of cover bands, which energize the more mainstream listeners in the crowd.

With Wyandotte County Lake Park, Welborn Park, Kaw Point Park, Kensington Park, City Park, Fairfax Park, Clifton Park, Huron Park, Roserdale Park, Pierson County and State Parks, Leo Alvey Park, Central Park Towers, The Lewis and Clark, Heatherwood Park, Mount Mary Park, Waterway Park, and more all within miles of one another, Kansas City, Kansas is densely populated with recreational greenspaces. These community hubs are perfect for people of all ages, the locations of community events raising from fundraisers to sports games to reunions to picnics to concerts. People who want to enjoy music without being confined to cramped indoor spaces will appreciate Kansas City's open, airy, natural venues.
Providence Medical Center Amphitheater is a prime example. Located in Wyandotte County Park, this open-air concert facility holds 18,000 people with the general theater, a box, and reserved seats. Its stage has held the Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Korn, and more. Children’s Mercy Park holds annual summer Buzz Beach Ball events, which spotlights alternative pop and rock artists from the 965 Buzz.
Kansas City has a newly cultivated, nationally-recognized theatre experience in town
For 5-star dining paired with high quality stage, film, and TV stars in comedies and musicals, Kansas City’s New Theatre Restaurant is a must-see. A venue that entertains locals and is worthy of drawing in those from other states, the New Theatre Restaurant is the best places for live shows in the Midwest’s plains. In fact, as written by The Wall Street Journal, it might be “the best dinner theatre in the country.” Although this theater is not always exclusively obsessed with the music, listeners will find just as much pleasure and skill in this artful live experience.
