About UsRoarin' Out Of KC! ....... Kansas City's VINE STREET RUMBLE Jazz Orchestra, directed by Kent Rausch, was formed to honor the legacy of the "golden era" of our city's world renowned jazz history. The band exclusively performs the same outrageously exciting music that made Kansas City THE place to be in the 30's and 40's, dedicated to taking the audience back to the wildly famous "jam sessions" and concert performances that literally changed the jazz world and influenced musicians from coast to coast and beyond.
The band personnel are Kansas City's "top call" musicians who love to faithfully recreate the KC jazz scene, most of whom have performed across the United States and around the world. Accurately performing the hot swing music of Count Basie, Jay McShann, Andy Kirk and the 12 Clouds of Joy, Harlan Leonard and His Rockets, Mary Lou Williams, Joe Turner and the world famous boogie woogie piano master Pete Johnson and others, Kansas City's VINE STREET RUMBLE takes audience members "Back in time, to 18th and Vine!" - tapping their toes, clapping their hands, cheering their favorite soloists and joining in the fun!
