How To Book KANSAS For Your Event!
Kansas, the band, may be available for your next special event!
From the beginning, Kansas achieved success by playing only their original music. This "garage band" from Topeka was discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner and released their first album in 1974.
The band has produced eight gold albums, three
sextuple-Platinum albums ("Leftoverture," "Point of Know Return," "Best of Kansas"), one platinum live album ("Two for the Show") and a million-selling gold single, ""Dust in the Wind."" Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for more than 200 weeks throughout the 70's and 80's and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. In fact, "Carry On Wayward Son" was the #2 most Played Track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997. In 1998, Kansas released an orchestral CD, "Always Never the Same," recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London. They followed with an orchestral tour accompanied by top-caliber symphony orchestras.
In 2000, Kansas went back into the studio with original band member and songwriter Kerry Livgren to produce "Somewhere to Elsewhere," the first CD featuring all 6 of the original players in 20 years! The ten new songs were written by Kerry Livgren and recorded in his studio in Topeka, Kansas. Players included Phil Ehart, Billy Greer, Dave Hope, Kerry Livgren, Robby Steinhardt, Steve Walsh and Richard Williams.
2001 brought the much anticipated, digitally re-mastered release of "Masque" and "Leftoverture," including never-released demos and live cuts. The digital re-master of "Point of Know Return" was released in February 2002. It also includes two new live cuts.
Original member and drumming master, Phil Ehart said, "We always have our eyes on the horizon. We are always looking for new ways to capture the essence of our music and of our performance."

- Fight Fire With Fire

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE KANSAS?
Official booking fees for KANSAS, or any other celebrity, are
determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior
(i.e., what is the fee of KANSAS for an event?)
(i.e., what is KANSAS charging to perform at an event?)
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of
event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar,
whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the
artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are
prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as
the artist becomes more popular, or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a
range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime.
artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any
particular offer from a talent buyer.
