The Highest Priest was formed in 2005 in Greene County, MO. Over the past three years The Highest Priest has gone through extensive line-up changes and formed their own record label known as Greene County Productions, Inc (G.C.P.). They have been defining their own style by mixing the angst of their metal past and fusing it with a clubbish hip-hop feel to form the unique sound they have coined as Rawcore. They have an intellectual twist on the topic of marijuana and pro- legalization and they use this to spread awareness about the cause. From before the first note, The Highest Priest will completely capture the audience with a unique sound that keeps the crowd coming back for more. The unique vocal presence of The Highest Priest and The Dead Priest aka Slow to create a sound original to the mid-west. These incredible vocals are backed by the sound and energy of T.H.C. and Mr. E Zoot. To create an unforgettable stage presence that fans can’t get enough of. Their extensive song list allows for many different sets, making it an exciting new experience every time you’re at the show!

The James Boys show is ideally a two hour, no break, concert/dance although they will play as long as three hours with a break. Audience participation is always encouraged at a James Boys event. Front man Rick Rykart will promote over the microphone any cause desired to be publicized and promoted at the buyer's wish. The James Boys show is a multi-generational event appealing to all ages. The show always consists of originals mixed into a high energy and fun package of classics and contemporary covers that everyone knows and loves.
The first professional folkloric music ensemble of its kind permanently-based within the United States and calling Kansas City home since 1991, Marimba Sol de Chiapas is the June 1st, 2004 evolution of the Mexican marimba band started in 1988 as Marimba Yajalón. Committed to the authentic performance practice and spirit of the marimba heard throughout Mesoamerica, Marimba Sol de Chiapas (which translates as The Chiapan Sun Marimba Group) maintains an active schedule of performances, recordings, and multi-cultural workshops. More than twenty years of ensemble highlights range from a feature on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and a cameo appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America, to performing at the art world’s premier event of the Americas—Art Basil Miami. From performances at three International Festivals of the Marimba and events hosted by the Mexican Consul of New Orleans celebrating the Bicentennial of Mexico’s independence from Spain, to several Compact Disc recordings—including Sol’s upcoming release Sunrise. So authentic is their interpretation and approach that the ensemble has toured Mexico on numerous occasions as guests of the Mexican Government. Dedicated to community as well as art, Marimba Sol de Chiapas is a teaching performance ensemble with well over thirty years combined in-school presentation experience. One of Sol's specialties is their in-school program: The Musics of Mexico, that takes students on a virtual musical tour of four of Mexico's best-known regional musical styles. Through a multi-media presentation (no special equipment required--the program is completely self-contained) that seamlessly integrates prerecorded music, a dazzling slide show, engaging commentary with extensive audience interaction, and live musical performances, the rich culture, history, language, geography, and music of the United States' closest, yet often very distant neighbors "south of the border" comes alive!!! Don't forget to ask about Sol's celebration of Mexican Music & Dance: Passport to FIESTA! The marimba band's emphasis on enriching as well as entertaining their audiences in a variety of local, national, and international venues and formats brings the music of the Mexican marimba to thousands of listeners, and furthers the reputation of Marimba Sol de Chiapas as North America's premiere professional Mexican Marimba ensemble. Marimba Sol de Chiapas is available for your next event or special occasion, including: - Concerts - Parties - Conventions - Fundraisers - Master Classes - Receptions - Festivals - In-school Programs - and more!!!
