About Us

 

The MGDs present a passionate blend of funk and blues powered by the soulful stylings of a music group driven to serve up an electrifying experience to the masses. The seven piece lineup includes a mix of keys and brass complemented by a poppin’ rhythm section that adds a unique flavor to the iconic Kansas City music culture. In what started as a three piece between longtime friends in 2008, the MGDs have evolved into what is now a potent powerhouse group in the high-energy music category. Influences include a variety of classic and modern sounds from New Orleans and beyond.

 

In addition to a host of club shows, the MGDs like to keep busy performing at festivals both at home and away. Middle of the Map, Crossroads KC Music Fest and the Coleman Hawkins Blues Fest are just to name a few. Since 2014, the MGDs have appeared annually on the Outfield Experience stage at Kauffman stadium before Kansas City Royals games. The MGDs perform in the heart of downtown Kansas City every 4th Friday at the Phoenix and every 2nd Saturday at Broadway Bistro.   

 

The MGDs currently have 3 original albums under their belt and with a sizable repertoire of covers and originals at hand, the MGDs are available for short showcase sets or an all night long shindig.
