Jesse Cook @ Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland
Jan 23 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Jesse Cook @ Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

“…lightning fast and bright flamenco guitarist…Jesse Cook…is about as seductive, percussive and danceable as this kind of music gets… He sets spirits on high…combines his love for pure pop hooks with artful finger-stylings.” – Jazziz (USA)

We couldn’t agree more about the powerful effect of Jesse Cook’s music and live performance on stage! Cook returns to Kansas City in January 2019 to deliver another energetic performance from his eclectic catalog of music–earning him 11 Juno nominations and one win for the album Free Fall. Known as `that flamenco guy’ to many, Cook notes his guitar styling is much more wide-ranging, as reflected in his 13 albums. Notice of Cook’s particular styling has led to invitations to open for such legends as B.B. King, Ray Charles, and Diana Krall.

Join Kansas City PBS for an evening with Jesse Cook and an opportunity to meet him in person after the show. Call 1-888-203-1747 or complete the form below to make your contribution for your tickets in support of Kansas City PBS! Alternatively, make your donation for Cook’s latest album release, Beyond Borders.
