Enjoy a jam-packed night of Rock ‘n’ Roll, R&B, Classical, Indie Math Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Pop and Soul.

About the Bands:

Frankie Shorez presents Mercy Fire was created in 2022. She creates original written works and delivers a signature vibrato and stage presence that is all her own. The sound is haunting and soulfully vintage! Mercy is a group of talented multi-instrumentalists, with a background in Blues, Classical and R&B.

Legerdemain is a KC based band created and led by Marcus Rattler (Steel Pan, Drums, Vocals). The mission of the band is to expose more people to Steel Pan and its versatility through all genres, while groovin’ hard! They gravitate toward Funk/Jazz/Soul while still covering Classical, Latin, Calypso, and much more!! Legerdemain, in its fullest form, is a trio with charter member Daniel Yung on the Keys and newest member Imani Mason on Bass but is capable of masterclasses, solo, and duet performances as well!

Talking Backwards is an American Indie Rock Band based in KCMO. We have played at venues all around the KC area and abroad including recordBar, The Bottleneck, The Rino, and even Kansas Speedway for the American Royal BBQ Competition. We’ve released an EP, and a single titled ‘Kismet’ from our forthcoming album which we expect to release in early 2024.
