Kansas City has a lot going for it. We have barbecue, world-class museums, kind people, a thriving arts scene, and oh, did we mention barbecue?
Our fair city is also a hotbed of live music and a major player in the jazz scene. Since April is Jazz Appreciation Month, there’s no better time to check out some of the live-music gems around Kansas City.
And if you haven’t visited the American Jazz Museum, it’s a must-see for any Kansas Citian. In addition to The Blue Room and Gem Theater, the museum also offers exhibits, programs, and events. All programming focuses on jazz and the role Kansas City has played in this uniquely American art form.
