Spend a fun, unforgettable night listening to the amazing and moving music of legendary rock band Kansas in Branson, Missouri!
This two-hour show consists of music performed by some of the original members of Kansas, the drummer Phil Ehart and guitarist Richard Williams. Accompanying Ehart and Williams are assist and vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist and keyboardist Ronnie Platt, and violinist and guitarist David Ragsdale. With this current lineup, the band continues to perform for audiences around the world.
For over four decades, this group has remained a legend, starting with the release of their self-titled album in 1974. Since then, the band hoped to remain different from the other musicians and bands performing in the rock genre, and they have continued to be so. This garage band from Topeka, Kanasas, was ahead of its time and became so popular that they have produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums, one platinum live album, and a million-selling gold single, “Dust in the Wind.” The group appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks in the '70s and '80s, while playing to sold-out shows and arenas throughout North America, Europe, and Japan. In 1995 and '97, their single “Carry On Wayward Son” was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio and then #1.
More recently, in 2014, the band was inducted into the Kansas Hall of Fame and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, recognized for their outstanding achievements in their native and adopted home states on the celebration of the 40th anniversary. Still popular on classic rock stations, Kansas's songs have been included in popular video games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, as well as featured in television shows like Supernatural and films like Anchorman.
