“In many ways, this show is several years in the making. We’ve always wanted to do a show where we can really feature the talented country artists in the Kansas City area, without sticking them in front of a touring Nashville act. We’re very proud of this event, and we’re overjoyed that our friends get to perform for you the way you deserve to hear them!” - RHINO
“A longtime friend and favorite of Kearney Amphitheater finally gets his much-deserved headlining show” - RHINO
It sure doesn't hurt having a name like Noe Palma. That's why his debut is titled "Get My Name Right." It is very different, unique, and memorable. That's exactly what fans have been saying about Noe's music for the past 15 years!
Growing up the Kansas City Metro Area, Noe started singing when he first heard Elvis Presley sing "All Shook Up." Raised in a very musically passionate family, he was engulfed by different thythms and sounds. Both his parents were talented singers and his father played guitar. Like many of his friends he was a member of his high school choir, but quickly realized that type of music didn't fit into his country soul.
At the beginning of his career Noe tested the waters with a few bands. He founded a very successful band called The Broken Cowboys and served as their lead singer. They toured Missouri and all surrounding states and played every major venue in the region where they developed a very healthy cult following. In fact in 2001 Broken Cowboys took second place at the Colgate Country Music Showdown Midwest Finals. They were quickly noticed by Tim McGraw's manager Scott Siman of RPM Management.
Noe has an unparalleled stage show. "I love it when I hear that my show was just as good or better than the headliner! It puts a smile on my face from ear to ear!"
Working with song writers such as Patrick Jason Matthews, Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley, and Bobby Pinson. Noe has created a great mix of Country and Southern Rock for his debut album. Guaranteed to leave you with your jaw dropped, pick up "Get My Name Right." You won't be disappointed!
“We’ve known Travis for several years, and we’ve yet to leave his show disappointed. He is the real deal!” - RHINO
Country music is just a natural part of life for some people. It's deeply woven into the tapestry of their favorite memories and serves as the soundtrack for their daily existence. For a select group of talented individuals, country music transcends personal pleasure and becomes a public platform, blossoming into a thriving career that adds to the genre's rich legacy. With the release of his new project, Travis Marvin makes that leap from longtime fan to burgeoning star.
"Country music is in my soul," Marvin says. "I grew up playing and was probably five or six-years-old when I started. As far back as I can remember, we would be playing music with my dad and my dad's side of the family. His father was a guitar player and singer so every Sunday we would get together over at my grandfather's house and play music. I was raised on country music. That was something we've done for many years and still do all the time."
Born in tiny Ottawa, Kansas and currently residing in Kansas City, the singer/songwriter grew up soaking in the sounds of Randy Travis, Garth Brooks and George Strait. "I remember buying Randy Travis' Storms of Life on cassette tape," he recalls with a smile. "Garth has been a huge influence on me because he's such an entertainer. He does a great job of singing to his fans, not at them. And I've also admired him on the business side. He's built a great infrastructure, and he knows how to run a business. These days, I'm really influenced by guys like Keith Urban and Eric Church, who are both great storytellers. That's my goal with my music. I want to tell great stories and entertain people."
State Line Drive
“I feel like we’ve watched this band grow up right before our very eyes. While they’re still relatively young in age, they have the sound of grizzled music veterans. This band can be whatever they want to be, and do it extremely well.” -RHINO
