From the City of Parsons:
Due to the Heat Advisory that Parsons and the surrounding area is under, Thursday, July 19th's The Grand Marquis concert has been moved to the Parsons Municipal Auditorium, 112 S. 17th.
"Jump, Jive and Wail" as the Kansas City ensemble, The Grand Marquis performs the best of vintage jazz and blues standards. The Grand Marquis have that classic, timeless 'straight-from-the-Kansas City-speakeasy' sound while injecting a vibrant relevance into their brand of hot swinging jazz & jumping blues. Versatile and buoyant, distinct and refreshing-a rhythm cocktail served by masterful musical mixologists.
The Grand Marquis' music can bring to mind a variety of settings and places as well: Prohibition-era KC, the streets of New Orleans, 1950s Memphis and even 1930s Paris. But their sound remains grounded in a roots influence that keeps inspiring the Grand Marquis to create, innovate and build off a solid foundation of American music. Theirs is a style that defies the limitations of category, whether jazz, blues or swing, yet finds favor with a wide audience.
A wonderful way to cool off, plan to attend KC's own - The Grand Marquis Concert in the comfort of the auditorium. Concessions will not be available, and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
