After two successful streaming events, Starlight has collaborated with one of Kansas City’s most popular bands for a one-night-only virtual concert, playing Friday, February 19 at 7 p.m. The Starhaven Rounders first appeared on the Kansas City music scene in 2011 and have earned a reputation for their high-energy shows. This homegrown five-piece band is a country western lover’s dream, featuring pedal steel and dueling male/female vocalists.
A team of Starlight multimedia and production staff worked to capture this concert offering at a safe social distance at Starlight in mid-January. The project was 100% local, and the streaming performance is an exclusive premiere with Starlight@Home to help support both the theatre and the artists during the COVID-19 pandemic. Access to the live stream is a minimum of $10 per household, with a pay-what-you-can feature available for those who can give more.
Conceived by drummer Wade Williamson (the descendant of a long line of country western musicians) the Starhaven Rounders pull material for their songbook from other eras, performing fan favorites like ‘Tulsa Time’ and 'Six Days on the Road', in addition to lesser known songs from iconic country legends like Willie Nelson, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and more. Even people who don’t consider themselves fans of the genre will get caught up in the Rounders’ upbeat, full throttle performances.
