FEATURED ACTS


Rick Bacus - The Journeyman

The Journeyman is Rick's Eric Clapton Tribute Band.

Rick Bacus has been a working musician for many years in the Kansas City area writing and performing as a solo act as well as with some of KC’s most in demand musicians. One of his earliest bands in the 1960s featured a little-known singer named Sly James (yes mayor of KC Sly James). Rick’s band Morningstar was signed to Columbia records in the late 1970s, producing two albums. In 2012 Morningstar was inducted into the Kansas Music Hall Of Fame.  

Dartanyan Brown

Back in the day Dartanyan Brown caught the attention of Bill Chase and joined his group.   Chase was creating a new type of jazz called fusion. A combination of jazz and rock, fusion demanded a bass player who could play complex cascading lines, and keep up with the drummer. Dartanyan was more than up to the task. In 1988 Dartanyan moved to San Francisco where he continued to pursue a musical career as player and producer. In 2016 Dartanyan moved back to Des Moines.   Dartanyan Brown is a member of the Iowa Blues, Jazz and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Grab your dancing shoes, slip on the parachute pants and get on down to the party. The M80s will crank up the party! You will hear one of your favorites before the night's end.

Valentine & The Knights were the best band we could have possibly picked for our wedding reception. They were incredibly accommodating even with time changes, they helped make our event as many of our guests said, one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to. It sounds cliched, but I can honestly say that Valentine and the Knights had everyone from our 80 year old relatives and loved ones to my 3 year old cousins and even the too-cool-for-school high school kids dancing. My husband and I both agreed the dance floor looked like a scene out of a movie with everybody up and groovin. Thank you for an awesome night Valentine!!!  Hanna H
