Concerts

Several performers will play the Fall Festival throughout the day. Learn more about each performer, and visit their websites, linked below.

Casi Joy

A seasoned performer, her 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. 

Funk Syndicate

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

Kansas City Latin Jazz Orchestra

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