About The Event
Tickets On Sale Now!
Listyn KC is dedicating our July show to local Kansas City musician Danny Cox, celebrating his 80th birthday!
Listyn KC host Kelsyn Rooks will be joined on stage by Danny Cox for a “fireside chat” in front of our audience about his personal music history, favorite recordings, influences, albums that changed his life, musicians he played with through the years – during which we share selected tracks from relevant recordings. After a short break we dim the lights and immerse the audience in the experience of collectively listening to an original vinyl pressing of Danny’s 1974 classic “Feel So Good”, which itself will be celebrating a 50th anniversary in 2024. All of the music is played back on our world-class stereo system brought in for every Listyn KC show.
More info to come about this show, and the special connection between Danny and the famous Ron Rooks July Birthday Parties!
All Listyn KC shows benefit the Center For Recorded Music, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization bringing to life a new world-class cultural center and music education facility in Kansas City.
