Want to see a show in Kansas City? Don't want to go to a bar to see a show? There are many coffeehouses in Kansas City that you might not have known about. Find out where and when on this page. The bands listed on this page are almost always nationally known Christian bands (Usually signed to a label). Christians have music that's not dull? You'll have to come to a show and find out. If you have or know of any other national acts that are coming to the KC metro area, Columbia Missouri, St. Joseph Missouri, Topeka Kansas, etc send me an email and I'll add them to this list.

I get my CDs from many places. I have used Grass Roots Music for a few online purchases and have been pleased. Your local Christian bookstore may have come in to the present day and may carry some of the good music now, check them out. My "local" one is the Christian Bookshelf in Lee's Summit (another link). They have a decent selection of good music. I go to First Baptist Church in Warrensburg (Saturday Night Service is best) for all those that want to know. For all other correspondence, you can send Email to Bob email@example.com. "Israel is now a nuclear power. Have a nice day."
The Wayback Machine has some really old iterations of this page. See them here: present location and here: old location. You get to see lists of shows from as far back as 1998.
