Kayla Regan http://kcur.org en Get On The Good Foot http://kcur.org/post/get-good-foot <p>One of Kansas City&rsquo;s up and coming bands isn&rsquo;t jazz, rock or country. Their audience isn&rsquo;t young or old, black or white, but is actually pretty diverse. And they just <em>now</em> started writing their own songs. The band is <a href="http://thgdft.com/" target="_blank">The Good Foot </a>and week after week, they recreate that old soul sound.</p><p> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 01:33:41 +0000 Kayla Regan 14085 at http://kcur.org Get On The Good Foot Urban Lit, Troost Corridor, The Good Foot http://kcur.org/post/urban-lit-troost-corridor-good-foot <p>Coming up on KC Currents, Sunday, March 11 at 5pm, with a repeat Monday at 8pm:</p><p> Mon, 12 Mar 2012 15:51:32 +0000 Sylvia Maria Gross, Alex Smith, Susan B.

Two promising newer venues, <strong>1911 Main</strong> and <strong>Café Augusta</strong> in Lenexa, have shut down. And at <a href="http://www.jardines4jazz.com/">Jardine&#39;s Restaurant and Jazz Club</a>, one of the city&rsquo;s most celebrated venues, a dispute between the owner and employees led to a boycott by musicians.
