Concerts With Walter
Aug 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

It’s hot, and so is the music!

 

Join us the next two Wednesday nights for our special Concerts With Walter series. This annual favorite is a great way to spend an evening enjoying some amazing music (and it’s free!).

 

This week, Walter’s featured guests are The Beach Nuts! This group is made up of some fantastic local musicians: Rod Fleeman on guitar, Jürgen Welge on drums, Walter Bryant on keys, plus James Albright on bass. Enjoy the music they create as they have a little fun with instrumental versions of baby boomer pop classics!

 

It’s not your typical beach – spy – Beatles – Martini – Mancini – space age jazz – rock band. Jazz meets Pop. YEAH, Baby!

Concerts With Walter
Aug 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

It’s hot, and so is the music!

 

This week, Walter’s featured guests are “The New Red Onion Jazz Babies!” It’s a little bit of old-style New Orleans jazz right here in Platte Woods. Our own Walter Bryant and Kent Rausch perform with Kansas City’s longest running traditional Dixieland jazz band. This group performs music originally made popular by Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, and some more recent artists such as Harry Connick, Jr. with a little Broadway thrown in. It’s fun!
