Kansas City | The Country Duo Trio @ Jazz: A Louisiana Kitchen
Jun 15 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

 

Join us for music and a cajun dinner at Jazz: A Louisiana Kitchen right on the State Line in midtown, Kansas City. We play as a trio every third Thursday of the month. Free and all ages.

Kasey Rausch – guitar & vocals | Marco Pascolini – pedal steel, guitar | Richard Burgess – bass

The Country Duo is Kansas City’s Kasey Rausch and Marco Pascolini. Armed with acoustic and electric guitars, a pedal steel, and a passion for good ol’ country music, you’ll hear them play Rausch’s original tunes as well as the classics from Patsy to Merle, Gram to Emmylou. After just a year of working together as a duo, 2016 found the two playing in Nashville at the Station Inn, recording at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN as well as being invited by Sun Studio to film the PBS Sun Studio Sessions. The episode will air on PBS stations across the country beginning Spring 2017, but look for the first audio recordings to be released by Winter 2016.

Kasey Rausch is a 4th generation songwriter, musician and co-producer of River Trade Radio on KKFI 90.1FM. Her family and musical roots can be found in Parkville, Kansas City, the Missouri Ozarks, Winfield, Kansas (home of the legendary Walnut Valley Festival), and deep Southeast Texas. Rausch’s third album Guitar in Hand (MudStomp Records 2014) debuted at #3 on the Roots Music Reporting charts and was voted one of the top three albums of the year by readers of The Pitch, KC’s weekly entertainment guide. She was named 2013’s Female Performer of the Year by The Farmer’s Turnpike on KMXN 92.9 FM, sharing the stage with Joe Ely, Peter Rowan, Roland White, Kris Delmhorst, Jack Williams and many more.

Marco Pascolini is the stuff of guitar legends. For more than twenty years he has forged his path as one of the most well-respected musicians in Kansas City. Recognized as one of the region’s most influential musicians, his talent across a multitude of instruments has been acknowledged in numerous music media including The Kansas City Star and The Pitch, among others. Be it an electric guitar or a pedal steel in his hands, you’ll find him touring with Kasey Rausch’s Country Duo or on stage in his home town with Mr. Marco’s V7, The Naughty Pines or songwriter extraordinaire Scott Hrabko.

Richard Burgess embraces a wide variety of musical styles and has spent the last quarter century working clubs, festivals, theaters, and concert halls as one of Kansas City’s primary bass players. Burgess is equally at home whether in boots at his honky tonk happy hour with The Naughty Pines, or donning a tuxedo in the Heritage Philharmonic. When away from the bass, Richard enjoys picking up a guitar and writing, recording, and performing his own songs. Richard has released a solo album, Midwestern Wind, and can be heard on numerous nationally released recordings.

Kansas City | The Country Duo @ Boulevardia
Jun 17 @ 5:00 PM – 5:45 PM

The Country Duo plays the Greenville Stage 5pm-5:45pm

Boulevardia isn’t an everyday experience. Our pop-up party nation combines the best aspects of beer, food and music festivals.

This year, our home moves to the Stockyards District. Situated in one of the oldest areas of Kansas City, the site was originally an area for trade and a receiving point for goods traveling on steamships up the Missouri River.

Because a desirable society stands on principle and aspires higher, Boulevardia is no everyday experience. We strive to make a difference in the community that supports us. We believe that together, we can make an impact. At Boulevardia we promote the following principles:

Eco-urban thinking and promoting the value of green initiatives in all aspects of daily life
Providing opportunities to cultivate local partnerships; from fresh, local food elements to artisans, designers, vendors and business relationships.

Education of the craft beer industry and the business and community impact these breweries deliver.

Developing and cultivating opportunities for leadership, community outreach and volunteerism.

Deepening a sense of community among Kansas Citians through the promotion of our city’s unique flavors and culture and contributing to the vitality of the great Midwest.
