Hot Indie Band The Greeting Committee Will Headline Riverside's Loud And Local Festival
The band that's an indie music fixture in Kansas City has a new album coming out.
In 2014, four high schoolers from Blue Valley got together and entered their band in a talent show. Seven years later, The Greeting Committee is still together and on a roll.
The band is now recognized as indie royalty in Kansas City. We trace its trajectory from a record deal while still in high school to the broadcast of one of its songs on local radio for the first time to being featured in film.
Band members talk about what it's like to write songs as a group and we play the first two tracks released from "Dandelion," the band's new album due out in late September.
- Brandon Yangmi, lead guitarist for The Greeting Committee
- Pierce Turcotte, bassist for The Greeting Committee
Loud & Local featuring The Greeting Committee takes place from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7, at E.H. Young Park, 1001 Argosy Pkwy, Riverside, Missouri 64150.
