Big Time Grain Company (Kansas City)

BIG TIME GRAIN COMPANY, one of the hottest new acts in country music that played the Royal’s World Series Celebration Rally for a half-million people at Union Station, has opened for Big & Rich, Restless Heart, Brother’s Osborne, Gary Allan, Dan and Shay, Travis Tritt, Chase Bryant, JoDee Messina, and Los Lobos. In the evening, this talented band will make sure this fun-filled event ends on with down-home, foot-stomping music.

The Rev Jimmie Bratcher (Preachin the Gospel Playing the Blues (Kansas City)

ELECTRIC REV JIMMIE BRATCHER, a country and blues artist, storms the stage in the afternoon. Jimmie and his band have opened for Willie Nelson and the Doobie Brothers, among others.

Bratcher’s shows — regardless of location — are worry-free zones, where the healing, good-time mojo of rockin’ blues sets hearts and minds, and maybe even souls, free. His latest album Secretly Famous is fueled by the same attitude. The disc’s dozen tracks are packed with humor, romance, joy and the thrill of finding the same at every turn, plus some real-life reflection. And they’re all buoyed by Bratcher’s gravel dappled tenor voice and his gritty, muscular and deeply rooted guitar playing, supported by his versatile longtime rhythm section of drummer Dave Autry and bassist Craig Kew.

For the music venue, bring your blanket on a first come, no reserved seating and is first come first served basis.
