Folly Theater Encore Club

History * Folly * Jazz

Welcome to the Folly Theater Encore Club!

The Folly Encore Club is a group of professionals in the Kansas City area that have a love for the Grand Lady of Twelfth Street, a passion for Kansas City History, and an ear for good Jazz.

2019 – 2020 Season Line-Up

The long-awaited schedule for the Encore Club’s 3rd season is here! While we work on pinning down a couple of locations, we do have several events planned out! Below you will find the schedule for our upcoming season.

February Happy Hour

Tuesday, February 11th at 5:30 PM

TWA Museum

We’re excited to go say hi to our friends at the Trans-World Airlines Museum, just north of the river! We’ll all hang out and mingle in the Ambassador club with beer & wine and appetizers while touring the iconic museum. There will be a TWA representative on-site to answer questions and fill us in on all the history of the TWA.

All attendees will have access to beer & wine and appetizers at the event and will receive a ticket to the Stacey Kent concert at the Folly Theater on February 22nd at 8 PM.

March Happy Hour

Saturday, March 7th at 6 PM

The Folly Theater’s Patron Lounge

Our last happy hour at the Folly Theater will, as always, have tasty cocktails and appetizers along with great people from around Kansas City with a love for music and history. We will end the night by attending a concert by Luciana Souza, the Bossa Nova vocalist that will you have you movin’ and groovin’!

All attendees will receive a free drink, appetizers, and a ticket to the Luciana Souza: The Book of Longing concert at the Folly Theater on March 7th at 8 PM.

April Happy Hour

Tuesday, April 21st at 5:30 PM

Buttonwood Art Space

The last Folly Encore Club happy hour will meet at the Buttonwood Art Space! A local art venue that donates half of all profits to local charities. We’ll have a chance to tour the space and hear from the team running the art space about the arts in Kansas City.

All attendees will receive free beer & wine, appetizers, and a ticket to the John Pizzarelli Trio for Centennial Reasons: A Tribute to Nat King Cole concert at the Folly Theater on April 24th.

Happy Hour in the Garden


Location TBD

The inaugural “Happy Hour in the Garden” event was a wild success in 2019. Therefore, we have decided to bring the Encore Club Fundraiser back in June of 2020 where guests will enjoy catered picnic foods, summery cocktails, and a raffle all set in a local garden in beautiful June!
