    In addition,Katy G & The Girls will be playing at our stage. 

    After two years as a band, 2014 has been a big one for KG&G, who kicked the year off as finalists in the 2014 International Blues Challenge.  Since then, they have played festivals in their native Kansas City (Boulevardia, Middle of the Map Fest), as well as fanning out to locales such as Des Moines, IA; Austin, TX; and Daytona, FL.  As backing band for singer/songwriter Jenny Wood, KG&G opened for rock legend Joan Jett.  Not content to stay domestic, they accepted an invitation to play the prestigious 35th Annual Montreal International Jazz Festival, will tour Sweden in November, and will participate in Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea cruise in February 2015.

    Katy Guillen and the Girls plan to continue writing, performing, and touring into 2015 and beyond.  Their already sizable fanbase grows with every stop they make, allowing them to spread their infectious and original mix of classic American genres from the heartland of Kansas City to music lovers around the world.
