Historic Grounds

Chris Meck’s poignant guitar playing has long been a fixture of Kansas City’s music scene. Paired with the lockstep grooves and girl-group harmonies from Michelle Bacon and Calandra Ysquierdo, Chris Meck and the Guilty Birds bring a fresh perspective to the classic guitar rock of Jimi Hendrix, merged with the affectionately soulful Stax sound.

Free Summer Concert: The Phantastics
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

Friday, August 11
Historic Grounds

The Phantastics are a nine-member band from Kansas City specializing in tantalizing, genre-blending dance floor activators. In 2015, the music group was crowned “Kansas City’s best party band” by the Kansas City Star. But “party” doesn’t encompass the range in which The Phantastics reign. Musicianship and diversity are at the core of their success. Expect to hear Rock, Rap, Dance, Funk, Jazz and Soul all incorporated into a seamless, winding river of music. “The band that can do it all”, according to I Heart Local Music, has shared the stage with some of music’s most legendary acts including George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic. The Phantastics were formed in December of 2010 and have been trying to save live music ever since.


All summer concerts are free and take place on the historic grounds of the Kansas City Museum.

You may bring blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic on the museum grounds.

Dogs are allowed in a designated area!
