We’ll be in KW for our first visit in December for a week. I’ll take a look at the music calendars online, that being said if you had 1 band/singer to listen to while your in KW who would it be? Seems there are so many music options we’d like to narrow it down to the favorites? We enjoy all types of music but are fond of Kenny Chesney and Jesse Rice.

I would personally recommend Zack Seemiller (singer) and also Caffeine Carl (band) who plays at the Smokin' Tuna. If you can catch them when they are playing together - even better!!

We're big Caffeine Carl fans, too. We've seen some great bands at the Tuna!

Patrick and the Swayzees are a must if they're in town. I will second Caffeine Carl. The Durtbags are always a good time for some great rock and roll covers.

Check and see who is playing at the Green Parrot. There’s often sound checks from about 5:30-7:00 or so. If you like them, you can come back for the full shows later on.

The Doerfels (now called Fuel on Fire) or Patrick and the Swayzees, although both are now touring and are only in KW sporadically. Catch either of these groups if you’re lucky!
