In a couple weeks I’ll be taking the stage at Crown Centre in Kansas City to perform in A Night On the Town Cabaret series at Musical Theatre Heritage. The three night stand will explore some highlights from my stage career including Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Phil Ochs as well as share some of my own stories and songs. Think Buddy Holly/Zachary Stevenson unplugged.
If you’re in Kansas City this Valentine’s Day there is only one place to be: The Living Room!
Inspired by Back to the Future, the Living Room’s Enchantment Under the Sea Dance will be rockin’ all the way back to the 50s this coming Valentine’s Day. Featuring live music to twist, hop, and jive to from Zachary Stevenson & the Satellites, there will be everything you loved about your high school dances with none of the stuff you hated. Dancing? Yes. Spiked punch? You bet. A crowned King and Queen? Absolutely. Throwing up in the bathroom? We sure hope not. So put your dancing shoes on and leave the “heavy” stuff behind. It’s your density.
Specializing in 50s and 60s pop, Zachary Stevenson has rocked his retro stylings in sold out theatres across North America for the past decade. You’ll hear the best of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Richie Valens, Eddie Cochran, The Everly Brothers, Elvis – and more.
Before Zach and the Satellites, you’ll see “The Love Birds” AKA “A La Mode,” an authentic jazz band built upon Kansas City’s rich heritage of swing and blues.
”A La Mode builds upon that heritage and adds their own playful spin that is classic-meets-contemporary. Led by classically trained guitarist Clayton DeLong and enchanting songstress Jesica Poell, A La Mode takes the authentic smooth, bluesy and improvisational Kansas City jazz style and blends it with Latin, French and Gypsy Jazz.”,”You’ll think you have been transported back in time”- -The Record KC Magazine. A La Mode performs all of the old favorite jazz standards along side a few modern tunes with jazz flavor.
Doors open at 7pm
Zachary Stevenson and the Satellites at 8pm

By popular demand, I’ve been asked to return to the Blue Frog for an extended evening of Buddy Holly. The 7pm shows on January 15 and 16th are SOLD OUT but the 9:30 shows still have some tickets left. Get your tickets HERE.
Music with a message. Poetry with purpose. Phil Ochs is my all time favourite songwriter and I’m so pleased to announce my participation in the first Canadian Phil Ochs Festival presented by Folk Zone in Ottawa, ON. The main event is the tribute concert at the Gladstone Theatre at 8:30pm but there are many free events happening throughout the day from 10-6. Please visit www.ochsfest.ca for more info.
I just want to give a quick thanks to Pete Paquette and everyone at Paquette Productions for a wonderful experience on my first tour in Ontario in several years. The photo above was shot backstage in Chatham, ON. The following three weeks will see me and the stellar cast of Class of ’59 touring Alberta and BC. Check the sidebar for ticket info and dates. Hope to see you there!*
