Kansas City's Vine Street Rumble Jazz Orchestra (VSR) was formed in March 2013 to promote the legacy of the "golden era" of Kansas City Jazz, and to honor the great musicans who created it in the 30's and 40's. It is the same standard size band of the middle 30's. VSR is the only band in the country that exclusively plays KC Jazz from such greats as Count Basie, Jay McShann, Bennie Moten, Andy Kirk, etc. The "pop" music of it's day, the Kansas City style of jazz appeals to a wide range of audiences and the engaging history of KC Jazz is discussed throughout the program, depending on the venue/activity. VSR has been featured on local ABC and Fox television stations.
