First Annual KC Blues Christmas Ball

Several of our favorite Groups (and maybe some surprises too) to benefit The Midwest Musicians Foundation which is an educational arts organization that unites performer and audience and fills a health care gap for Kansas City musicians. If I'm reading the artwork above correctly, tickets are only $12 in advance.  Wow!

    Groups were fantastic, especially the energy and styles of Katy Gillen.

    So sorry due to unforseen hearing issue...unable to attend.

      I had purchased ticket, but don't feel bad about it...it was to be a donation to the Musicians Fund and so still feel like part of me got to be there...:)

    With the road condition report that I received from two of my sons this morning plus a recent weather and road report from the Linn County Emergency Mgmt coordinator, it looks as I'm going to miss tonight's concert. I am really bummed but better safe than sorry. Hope to meet you all soon! Feliz Navidad!

    I may not have the white fedora on but I'll have on some sort of fedora.

    I will be attending if the weather doesn't get too bad. I am coming from Lawrence, so that may be a big if. I don't know too many (actually none) of the Bluesiac members so I hope I see someone from the last event.

    My thanks to Dennis and Pat O' for hosting this event. If you are new, I think you'll find both of them to be great hosts!

    Okay, if the weather doesn't prevent my attendance, I'm going to walk in with a sign that says "Bluesiacs?". Vivian and Sharon keep a sharp eye on the door. However, the weather outlook for tomorrow is not good. I was going to go KC tomorrow and head to Lamoni, IA on Saturday morning to spend Christmas with my middle son . . . now, it's pretty much up in the air.

  • Keith W.

    Look for Patrick O'Malley and Dennis Nelson as hosts. Usually Pat has on a white fedora and Dennis is wearing a good looking head!

    I'll probably arrive around 9 PM; hope a seat can be saved?

    December 19, 2013

  • Just D.

    I have attended a few of the Bluesiac events in the past but never know where the group is sitting. I've always wanted to walk up and introduce myself and officially meet some of you. Help!

    I've been called into work now on Friday evening~ However I do not have to be there until 6:00 pm ~ So I will still plan on getting there early (by 3:45-4:00) to save the rest of you some seats~ I will be leaving by 5:20, so I will hope that some of you will be able to show up by the time I have to leave and go to work~

    Thank you Louise & Patrick...redid for tickets few mins ago and was able to obtain my copy...tyty...looking forward to it.

    The only thing abt waiting to buy at the door is that it could be a sellout because of the limited seating inside! I think this event will be a sellout! I had no problem buying my ticket online earlier this week. Hope they have the problem fixed now!

  • Louise

    Kathleen I buy tix on that asite all the time and they WERE having some issues but it should be fixed now. If you're still having problems, friend Merle Zuel on FB and he may be able to help.

    • Kat (.

      Thank you...going to try again this morning...

      November 24, 2013

  • Louise

    OK tix online are $14.50.

    November 24, 2013

  • Louise

    Also there are pretty hefty fees online these days so buying at the door will probably be the same price.

    November 24, 2013

  • Kat (.

    Ok...I have tried two different times to purchase from their site...2 tickets for 29.00 first time...it takes all your information...card info and all under a protected site(or so it says)...comes back and says...error ...nothing was ordered, pls check your email to make sure nothing was sent....nothing came...gave it few mins and tried again...this time for just one ticket for[masked] plus 2.50 handling).....this time after all info added...says they are having site problems pls try again later...kind afraid to try again later...that would be 3 charges if all goes thru....soooooooooooooo.........Patrick, were you able to get tickets there?

    That's right. $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and all ticket proceeds go to the charity.
