Artists Kartez Marcel and “They Call Me Sauce” Handy will offer a unique, lively performance at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23rd.  The performance will take place in Kirk Hall, located within the KC Public Library Central Library, 14 W 10th St., Kansas City, MO.


Kartez Marcel, a native of Kansas City, Missouri is a recording artist, musician, songwriter and overall creative visionary. Though a rising star in the local arena he sets his standards high and mentally challenges himself to deliver lyrical prose and sonically mature material that holds its weight against some of the most respected award-winning artists.





Sauce Handy’s banging beats, amazing lyrics, mesmerizing hooks, positive messages that can change the world, and a live performance that will inspire anyone from any age group or culture; this is all wrapped up in the Kansas City native rapper “They Call Me Sauce.” A local artist with a national appeal, Sauce has been moving art since 2008.
