For over eight years, Emerald City Band has had the opportunity to travel to Kanas City, Kansas and perform at the nationally recognized black-tie gala, Treads & Threads. Hosted by The University of Kansas Health System and taking place at Kansas Speedway, this event is dedicated to raising money in expanding and improving patient care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
This event has always been special for the band, not only because of the significance of the organization’s mission but because of the energy and overall atmosphere when performing. Through the sound checks to the other incredibly talented bands in the line-up, it’s the best feeling. In the past, we’ve had the pleasure to share the stage with renowned and acclaimed bands and musicians such as Barenaked Ladies, Kacey Musgraves. This year, we did with none other than the phenomenal REO Speedwagon.
