VFW Open Mic Saturday Featuring John Keck

  • VFW 8804 Grant Ave Overland Park, Kansas 66212 (map)

Join us for open mic night this Saturday night! Bring your instruments! Bring your voice! 
Our Saturday open mic is hosted by Mr. J of Honeysuckle Haze and we choose a new music feature each week. This week we are featuring local singer/songwriter John Keck. Gather your friends and enjoy $1.50 wells and $2 PBR’s all night long! 

About our feature: 

John is a songwriter who creates lyrics with the intent of capturing emotion of a moment in time that we can travel to and be present in. Much like a photograph defines the light of an instant. With one foot in the south and one in the midwest, John's music is a modern blend of traditional americana and a willingness to be undefined. 

"People who haven't heard me play ask me what kind of music I make. And I want to answer them, and not be rude, but it's difficult give a 30 second elevator pitch, I don't set out to do "one thing", so I've started saying 'I write songs for people who love Van Gogh's paintings'. I want to have a conversation about what I've written, even if it means we only get to have it with our eyes when I perform. I want to provoke thought and connect with people. I would also love to see if I can get you to dance, laugh and cry a little." - John L Keck

John is on the verge of releasing a 3 song EP this spring and is excited to be performing as much as possible.
