For the third straight year, local dance band sensation The KC All Stars have won the prestigious "Best Band in Kansas City" award. The KC All Stars had a stellar 2010 string of performances, including gaining the headlining slot for HBO at The Kansas City Convention Center, Larry Moore's Sunflower House Charity Gala at The Overland Park Convention Center for over 2000 guests, Headline Act at Kansas City's Power and Light District, The 2010 Kansas City Auto Show at Bartle Hall, The Kansas City Ballet's Ballet Ball Gala at The Muehlbach, The Uptown Theater, The Madrid Theater, Leawood's Park Place Concert Series and too many more great shows to mention.
The KC All Stars retained their status as the "Official Band of the Kansas City Chiefs" and performed at the season home opener vs. the Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium to a packed house. They even married off one of our beloved Chief's offensive linemen Ryan Lilja at The Hilton President, as well as performed at the wedding of Charlia Taylor, head cheerleader for The Chiefs.
The KC All Stars were featured at several major KU events such as the annual spring dance and also the KU Alumni Gala. The band didn't forget their fans at MU and KState either, performing for several Frat and Sorority parties on both campuses.
The KC All Stars' biggest honor this year was being invited to be the headline entertainment at The Kansas City Chamber of Commerce annual gala at The Hyatt Regency.
Coming in a close second place was Kansas City's newest rising star 80's band, "The Taxis", and in third place was the hottest new wedding band "The Wedding Crashers". The KC All Stars are beginning to become a National act as they toured from Vero Beach, Florida to Scottsdale, Arizona as a headline act.
Congrats KC All Stars!
About time a REAL band got some recognition in Kansas City. It's time to move on from these other tired ass bands that we keep hearing about. Keep kickin it All Stars!
These guys deserved it! We saw them at The Uptown Theater and they rocked it.
How do we get our band nominated for next year's "Best Band of Kansas City" award?
Nominations are determined by votes cast from a poll in the Kansas City Star. Your band has to get enough votes from the poll to be nominated.
Great to see bands like the KC All Stars get some recognition, more bands should dedicate as much of their time with charity work as do the All Stars. Congratulations guys on winning KC's best band!
Way to go All Stars! You guys rocked at my sister's wedding last fall at The President.
Hope to see you guys rocking the stage soon!
Incredible show the other night at The Crossroads guys, you have really raised the bar for all other bands in Kansas City.
