A Week of Local Music! November 8th to 14th!

We play KC Music all the time, but this week all of our music programs will be playing music of the bands in the Online Band Auction will highlight music from other local artists.  In an effort to keep everyone safe, and comply with current KKFI COVID protocols we are holding this event instead of our typical band auction.

If you would like to bid on an artist just Click Here to see all of the artists/bands that have donated a 2 hour performance sometime within one hour of KC in 2022.

We are excited to bring this option to the band auction as we believe it will offer donors a great way to learn about more local artists and that is a huge part of what we do here at KKFI all day every day.

How It Works

  • Artists sign up to donate a two-hour concert to be auctioned to the highest bidder during KKFI 90.1 FM’s annual Band Auction.
    • Solo Artists, Duos, & Bands All Welcome!
  • We schedule each act for 30 minutes On-Air during the Band Auction.
  • During that 30 minutes, listeners call in and bid.
  • High bidder works with the band or solo act to arrange for a two-hour gig sometime during the next 24 months.
    • This could be a birthday party, anniversary, block party, class reunion, or just for the heck of it party.
