CelebrationReviewed on June 9, 2023From Kelso, WA

great group. I would have liked a little more showmanship and crowd engagement. Really great players, they arrived a little later than i thought, but they were still very much on time.

Grand OpeningReviewed on April 14, 2023From Oregon City, OR

I hired the Kansas City Rhythm Kings for a Grand Opening Store event. They were fantastic. Great to work with, arrived early to set up and were such a happy group of musicians. I would absolutely recommend them and hire them again.
