The KCK Street Blues Festival was started in 2000 to honor the cultural contributions of Kansas City’s rich blues and jazz heritage and the strong relationship between the musicians and the northeast neighborhood.  The northeast area was popular during the ‘40s through the ‘70s as a hotbed for the blues, with a little jazz mixed in.  Founder and president, Dawayne Gilley tells us how the unique music festival focuses local musicians.
