Herbie Hancock

Description: Kauffman Center and Mammoth Live Present Herbie Hancock Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 7:30 PM Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts Groundbreaking jazz performer Herbie Hancock will perform with his band in Muriel Kauffman Theatre on Saturday, August 12.

Tickets for the event range from $45 to $150 plus fees, and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 21. The concert will be co-presented by Mammoth Productions. Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, Hancock also developed new approaches on his own recordings. His work in the 1970s – with record-breaking albums such as Headhunters – combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. Rockit and Future Shock marked Hancock's foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. In honor of his work, Hancock was awarded the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016. Band lineup: Herbie Hancock - piano/keyboards Vinnie Colaiuta - drums James Genus - bass Lionel Loueke - guitar Terrace Martin - keyboards/saxophone This event is part of the 2017-18 Kauffman Center Presents series.
