Kansas City, MO – The Mongol Beach Party spanned from 1989 to 1992 and was described as an "inappropriately festive jazz, funk, pop, dance band." The members have gone on to shape the Kansas City music scene with bands like alacartoona, Snuff Jazz, Expassionates, and The New Amsterdams.

The Mongol Beach Party performed December 19th and 20th, 2008, at the recordBar, 1020 Westport Rd, Kansas City, Missouri.
