About the bands:

The Marching Cobras is a Kansas City performance drill team comprised of about 150 young people. The group has been around for more than 40 years, and has won more than 300 first place awards and performed for three presidents in its history.

River Cow Orchestra specializes in making music that will only be performed once. The group takes what it calls a “Zen approach” to jazz music, which is music created on the spot without retakes, charts or written music.

Wire and String is an avant or experimental rock group from Kansas City. The band features a homemade instrument, dresses in handmade costume and uses the sounds of a 3D printer in one song.

BEnTT is a three-piece hard rock band from Smithville, Mo. The band covers music from Nirvana to The Offspring to Avenged Sevenfold, with a few original songs. 

Opossum Trot is a four-piece alternative rock band from Kansas City, Mo., and is self-described as creatively driven by the people around them.

Junebug is a St. Louis-based quintet with soulful folk sound. The band formed in 2012 with a “song-first” attitude with a focus on vocals.

Shae Lee Band is a group from Olathe, Kan. featuring young musician Shae Lee on vocals, guitar and keys. The group plays music with pop, rock, blues, R&B and Mowtown sound.
