Knuckleheads Saloon is a music venue in Kansas City, Missouri. The facility is a complex of four stages – a large outdoor stage featuring a converted caboose to one side as a VIP seating area, an indoor saloon stage and a 64 seat lounge known as the “Gospel Lounge” It doubles as a music oriented church on Wednesday evenings when Live music can be presented on all Four stages at once.
Back in 1899, Electric Park was built on the grounds where we are today. Electric Park had a large seated-bandstand and the later park had the first outdoor stage in Kansas City. Today, over 100 years later, here we are with an outdoor stage as well.
This where it all began, starting out with some of Kansas City’s (and the world’s) best Open Jam Sessions – hosting such artists as Tower of Power, JJ Grey, Leon Russell and many, many others – it has the coolest vibe anywhere and music just pours out of the walls.
