A lot of hip hop sounds great on record but can disappoint live audiences, especially if it's just one guy with a microphone rapping over a recorded track. Olathe rapper Duncan Burnett avoids that by performing with a live band, often consisting of the best jazz instrumentalists in the area. Burnett's flows don't shy away from his faith, but calling him a "Christian rapper" would be missing the point.
Duncan Burnett & The Riot will perform at The Riot Room at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 22. For more information, or for tickets, visit The Riot Room's website.
