Entertainment

Casi Joy

A seasoned performer, Casi Joy‘s impressive social media presence eventually led to a highly-touted run on NBC’s The Voice, where she instantly turned all four chairs and was singled out by Rolling Stone as having one of the top 10 blind auditions of all time – a testament to the hard work and dedication of someone who has been performing professionally since the age of five.

Casi Joy will perform at the BrewLab stage at 8 a.m.

Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra

The Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra was formed to preserve and perpetuate the art forms and traditions of Latin Jazz, Salsa & Afro-Latin dance.

With a 2018 audience reach of nearly 40,000 in the Broader KC region and American Southwest, the Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra is an intercultural, intergenerational organization, bringing transnational experiences to the stage, the dance floor, and the heart of the Midwest.

Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra will play the BrewLab stage at noon.

Funk Syndicate

Funk Syndicate has been bringing Funk, R&B, Soul and Disco to the Midwest for the past 12 years and going strong.  They specialize in providing a completely entertaining and authentic recreation of your favorite R&B and Dance hits from the 60s to present day. Funk Syndicate‘s lead vocalists bring an energy and engagement to their performances that is irresistible to any audience.

Funk Syndicate will play the BrewLab stage at 3 p.m.
