An interesting tidbit and something nobody is saying because they'd like to squeeze yet another local establishment for a measly $350 weekly corner inch advert.
Tonight there is yet another Kansas City Jazz Club opening . . .
Which leads us to this conclusion . . .
THE KANSAS CITY JAZZ CLUB GLUT IS NOW OFFICIAL!!! THERE ARE SIMPLY TOO MANY VENUES AND NOT ENOUGH PERFORMERS WORTH SEEING IN THIS COWTOWN!!!
Like it or not . . . There are only about 4 musicians in this town that could be described as MUST SEE artists . . . Most of these club entrepreneurs are simply opportunists without much insight or experience in the music game. All of these venues hope to attract the middle-class crowd who know even lest about Kansas City's signature but mostly dead art form.
This operation should maybe last 2-5 years of pure misery for local jazz enthusiasts . . . Meanwhile, decent hip-hop venues with a much larger and younger audiences are hard to find thanks to overwhelming security concerns. Still . . . Since so much free promotional press is being offered to this jazz effort . . . It's important to offer a bit of reality check to yet another far too optimistic Kansas City scheme that promises nothing more than the same old tune about a "renaissance" in the making.
