One of my best Muddy Roots crowd buddies that I have is Mr. Dylan Dorrell (O’l Double D), the Kansas flag waiving fun loving man from the Kansas City area turns 40 this year. This little bender type festival began a while back as a party in a friends basement. Today, thanks to help from many venues and bands it has turned into a big deal within the Roots Music crowd.

11 years ago I threw a house party for my 30th birthday. Someone called it a Bender…Dylan’s Big Birthday Bender Blowout Bash was born. 10 years, 4 house parties, 1 BBQ, 3 states, 5 bars, gallons of booze, and hours of hangovers bring us to year 7 in a row in beautiful Kansas City, MO
2 NIGHTS AND ONE FULL DAY OF MUSIC for only $20. that;s right $20.
Many thanks to Travis and the Westport Saloon and Michelle at Davey’s for always being so generous and helping make this event happen.

This event gets lumped in with my festival series every year, however it’s a lot different. There is no need for me to include camping info or maps, and there are no external rules only venue common sense. So head on down there and have a blast with my buddy Mr. Dylan!
