GOODING – Wednesday, September 27
GOODING is soul-stirring, animated Rock ‘n’ Roll from the plains. With over 1,000 shows in 160 cities under their belt, this Los Angeles-based/Kansas-bred four-piece is by far one of the hardest-working bands in America. Their energetic live show featured majestic, soul-stirring indie rock with soaring harmonies and blazing guitars infused with the ghosts of Blues and Americana.
CARRIE NATION AND THE SPEAKEASY – Wednesday, September 20
Our third concert featured Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy. Their high energy sound blending punk, bluegrass and Dixieland was born right here in Wichita, KS. CNS has built an international following by playing more than 250 shows in 40 states and completing a European tour.
THE CHEROKEE MAIDENS AND SYCAMORE SWING – Wednesday, September 13
Our second concert in the series featured the Cherokee Maidens and Sycamore Swing. This trio of Lauren "Sis" White, Monica Taylor and Robin Macy brought their western swing and vintage flair to Heritage Square for an all-American musical experience.
THE MUDBUGS & CAJUN ZYDECO BAND – Wednesday, September 6
The Mudbugs offered up a lively bit of Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco care of Wichita, Kansas. Their added layers of country, swamp pop and rockabilly came alive in sets featuring both genre classics and “Cajun-ified” rock/pop numbers. The Mudbugs have found national fame, including an appearance on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” Let’s go Mudbuggin’ in Heritage Square.
