Next up was White Sea. The band performed the song “They Don’t Know” and many more. Before the show even started people were singing, dancing, and chanting.

Finally, it was time for The Naked and Famous. They played a great show (as always). One of their last songs they played was “Girls Like You.” Also, the band sang hit songs, “Young Blood” and “Hearts Like Ours.” Alisa Xayalith, lead singer, has some great talent that kept the party going all night. The crowd sang along the whole time.

Eric Paslay #HCNKC

Well… we kicked off our 2014 Hot Country Night Concert with Eric Paslay last night. Drew Baldridge opened up the night with some fun cover songs and some of his own songs. The night was perfect. Not too warm not too cold. It rained for a short bit but it didn’t stop any of the fun. Once Mr. Paslay took the stage the night was perfect. He sang some of his hits such as “Song About A Girl“ and “Friday Night.”

He said his goodbyes then decided it wasn’t enough. The crowd went wild when he came back for more KC love.


Buzz Under The Stars Night One

Spring is in the air and that means concert season is here. Last night we kicked off our concert season with Buzz Under The Stars Night One with Grouplove, MS MR, Smallpools and Max Frost. What a way to kick off the season. By 6 p.m. KC Live! was a packed house.

Performing his hit single, White Lies, Max Frost took the stage first, followed by Smallpools.  Next up was MS MR. Lizzy Plapinger (female vocalist) blew us away. She not only has fantastic vocals, but can put on one heck of a show. 

Next up was Grouplove, who once again, did not disappoint. After performing at KC Live! last year and putting on an incredible show, it seemed impossible to top, but yet again, the sweet sounds of the indie rock band were impressive. One of the highlights was when MS MR, Smallpools and Max Frost joined Grouplove for a dance party on stage. The energy was unreal.

If you saw the show, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. What a start to another awesome concert season ahead of us! Be sure to send over a few compliments to 96.5 The Buzz, Miller Lite and Sporting KC for an awesome Buzz Under The Stars show. We can’t wait for #BUTS2.

Don’t miss our upcoming shows at KC Live! This Saturday, May 3rd, Fitz And The Tantrums with Night Terrors of 1927 take the stage. Then join us Saturday, May 17th for Buzz Under The Stars Night Two with Foster The People, Twenty One Pilots, NONONO, St. Lucia and Hunter Hunted.

With clients, friends and families gathering to watch the games, eating and drinking, and checking out the entertainment on the KC Live! stage- the atmosphere and good times make for lasting memories.
