at most charity fundraisers expect a somewhat higher class
of entertainment. It is also important that all of
your guests, young and old, can relate to the music.
An upbeat variety band is the best choice for most charity
fundraisers. Be sure that your night's activities flow
quickly or your guests will tire early. All of the
bands listed below are familiar with the charity fundraiser
format, including silent auctions, inspirational video slide
show powerpoint presentations and celebrity guest speakers.
The KC All Stars, listed first below, are personal friends
of most of the Kansas City celebrity guest speakers.
Recently BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos have
also become VERY popular entertainment for charity
Quickly becoming the most
popular entertainment for Kansas City charity fundraisers,
events and galas, BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos are stellar to
say the least. These guys involve the ENTIRE audience with
sing along songs, dancing and comedy. They have a "full
band" sound, so that every song sounds just like the
original and the drums and bass keep the dance floor
When it comes to charity fundraiser entertainment, getting
the crowd involved is key. It is important that the
entertainment you choose can relate to all age groups
young and old and perform music from every generation so
that everyone gets up and dances. No band gets the crowd
into the show better than The KC All Stars, Winner of
Band in Kansas City"
for 4 years in a row..

Kansas City Lights
When you just want to add a little class to your event
without going over the top, The Kansas City Lights bring
anywhere from a jazz duo to a five piece jazz band to
relax and comfort your guests without overbearing.
Many Kansas City charity fundraiser events have a few
different segments including a cocktail hour, dinner, a
video or slideshow about their charity organization, a
silent auction, a live auction, and of course, the
entertainment. The Kansas City Lights are perfect
for the beginning of the evening, performing light classy
jazz for your guests.
Nothing says Kansas
City like the famous Dave Stephens! From hosting
the Kansas City Plaza Lighting Ceremony to
entertaining at the new
Kauffman Center for the
Performing Arts, Dave Stephens has been
entertaining Kansas City for over 2 decades. A
great combination of Las Vegas crooner and upbeat
dance band, the Dave Stephens band is a sure hit for a
charity fundraiser, event or gala.
Looking for entertainment for your charity fundraiser that
will get everyone up and dancing? Look no further
than Kansas City's newest 80's variety band, The Taxis.
The Taxis bring a fresh new style of entertainment to the
dance band scene in Kansas City by mixing in a heavy dose
of everyone's favorite hits from the 80's and then adding
hits from all other generations as well. The Taxis
are a very upbeat and energetic band with a great light
show and sound.
Kansas City has come full circle once again, and it's time
to introduce an old school funk band with a young twist.
Of course, we're talking about The Good Foot, Kansas
City's revival of the 70's funk band. For years
bands like Hothouse, The Groove Agency, and Simplexity
dominated the live music scene in Kansas City performing
all of the favorite funk and r&b classics from Brick House
to Sly and The Family Stone. Well, it looks like
that trend has returned at least for one band. The
Good Foot, although not yet polished for corporate events,
would be a great choice for charity fundraiser
