Join us Thursday, December 15 for Katy Guillen and the Girls! Propelled by a loyal contingent in their hometown of Kansas City, Katy Guillen and the Girls have taken their vivacious brand of blues rock to stages across the globe. They’ve played the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea cruise, and they’ve opened for The Doobie Brothers. This roots rock trio, comprised of Katy (guitar, vocals), Claire Adams (bass, vocals), and Stephanie Williams (drums), is an exciting up-and-coming band with a sound characterized by searing, lively guitar licks; heavy, driving drums; and rock-solid basslines. The combination of Katy’s soulful vocals and Claire’s intense harmonies add a fierce punch to Katy’s songwriting. With influences drawn from rock & roll contemporaries like Heartless Bastards, to timeless guitar god Jimi Hendrix, to sweet songstress Patty Griffin, KG&G have been known to pack a blues-and-BBQ roadhouse just as easily as a multi-bill alternative venue.
As reflected in our name, our mission is to serve Artist, Audience and Community. Artists love to appear in theaters where their needs have been anticipated and met. We serve Audiences by presenting an eclectic mix of music from nationally and internationally recognized artists. We serve the Community by sharing this talent beyond the stage at our theater and through educational and outreach programs. These venues might include public schools, boys and girls clubs, or assisted care facilities. This niche is a vital link in the development of an overall creative economy in the region by providing the type of arts and entertainment options that are typically found only in larger metropolitan areas.
To meet these goals we will need sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact an AAC Live! board member today.
