We hope that you are in the know about our incredibly vibrant live music scene here in Kansas City.  If you aren't, we would love to broaden your horizons by introducing you to some of the local venues where you can catch a glimpse of whatever type of music that you enjoy.  When people think of the Kansas City music scene, they inevitably think of jazz and blues.  While those certainly are two of the music styles thoroughly embraced in our area, the live music played throughout the city and beyond comes in all sounds and spectacles.  No matter what you might be in the mood for you will be able to find it here in the Kansas City area.  From the top musical acts, to up-and-coming artists, open mic nights, and impromptu jam sessions - there is a space and place for everything.  

Be sure to check out what the venues listed below have to offer.  We've included venues of all shapes and sizes, to make sure you can find whatever you are looking for.  Some have free live music, and others have ticketed events for their shows, so we've included their website links so that you can check out their policies, and the events on their calendars.   With a wide selection of musical offerings to choose from, you are sure to find one that appeals to you.  Our list mainly touches on inside the Kansas City boundary, so if you know of another great spot to see some live music please let us know!
