Aloha KC! Get ready to bring your tiki torches and your cowboy boots y’all because Art in the Loop is bringing you a real tropical hootenanny this Wednesday, June 27 in West Terrace Park.

Here at Art in the Loop we try to keep things interesting, and we decided it would be super fun to bring two musical groups who couldn’t be more different together for your listening pleasure. First up, the Candice Hill Trio; Candice is a local KC musician by way of St. Louis, who holds her master’s degree in Music Performance on Steel Pan from Northern Illinois University. She plays the steel pan, or drum, and creates a musical environment evocative of beaches, hula skirts, and delicious beverages with little umbrellas. Her music is sure to pair well with Kona Ice, who will be on hand to provide delicious, refreshing sno-cones to partly fulfill your dreams of a tropical vacation right here in KC.

Next up is Cowtown Country Club, a quartet of classically-trained local musicians, who play upbeat, dance-able Americana with just enough western swing that you can tap your foot to. Their music will bring you back to the midwest after your trip to the tropics.

The whole swinging party takes place on Wednesday, June 27th from 5:30 pm-8:00 pm in West Terrace Park, at 8th & Pennsylvania.

Candice Hill Trio performs from 5:30 pm-6:45 pm.

Cowtown Country Club performs from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm.

This is a family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
