On Feb. 21, the jazz vespers series at First Baptist Church of Kansas City will feature local vocalist Jesica Poell and classically trained guitarist Clayton DeLong. Their band is known as A La Mode.
They will perform at 6 p.m. in the church in south Kansas City at 100 W. Red Bridge Road, near the intersection with Wornall Road. Free lighted parking is available around the building. A La Mode takes the authentic smooth, bluesy and improvisational Kansas City jazz style and blends it with Latin-Brazilian, French and gypsy jazz. The concert is free, though a free-will offering for the band is taken between the band’s two sets. More information at www.kcjazzvespers.com and 816-942-1866.
