Blue Mondays at the Blue Room

Every Monday night, a jam session at the Blue Room draws a rambunctious crowd of genuine music-lovers, many of whom attend with religious devotion.

Kansas City, MO – Some people who live in Kansas City see 18th and Vine as a tourist attraction, documenting the city?s jazz history, instead of a place that still pulses with life. But every Monday night, a jam session at the Blue Room draws a rambunctious crowd of genuine music-lovers, many of whom attend with religious devotion. They range from college students to husky-voiced jazz fans to neighborhood regulars stopping in for a drink. KCUR?s Gina Kaufmann went to a recent Blue Monday and sends us this audio postcard.
