Welcome to the Kansas City Area Bluegrass Music Club. This is our new home page.
Meetings are the second Friday of each month, October thru May. This year, 2014-2015, meeting dates are as follows: Oct 10, Nov 14, Dec 12, Jan 9, Feb 13, Mar 13, Apr 10, May 8. We meet at the Pittman Rd Church of God, 4700 Pittman Rd, Kansas City, MO 64133. At each monthly meeting we have entertainment furnished by local groups starting at 7:00 with a short business meeting, when needed, between groups. We also have several jam rooms, so bring your instruments and get in on the pickin’! Occasionally we have workshops for instructions on bluegrass instruments. The Woman’s Ministry serves food and drinks, so bring your appetite and help support their ministry. Admission is free, we pass the hat for donations during the meeting. Come out and visit with us!
Highlighting our Youth
March is Youth Night at KCABMC
We already have a few performers signed up, but we’re always looking for more. Kids 18 and younger who would like to perform should call Beckie Collins at 816.536.6764 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Youth night is one of the ways that we honor the memory of former club President Jim Boling. While he may have teased and razed kid pickers, he encouraged and welcomed them too. Jim understood that for the music to continue and grow we have to get our young folks interested in Bluegrass.
Joey Collins, pictured above, is one of last seasons performers who has already signed up. He represents the fourth generation of Collins’ performing bluegrass.
