A Kansas City-based rock ‘n roll trio that features masterful, emotive guitar work and affectionately soulful girl-group harmonies.
Price Range: $500-$2,000
Chris Meck’s poignant guitar playing has long been a fixture of Kansas City’s music scene. He plays his instrument with finesse, thoughtfulness and devotion; sometimes it shreds, sometimes it weeps, sometimes it lacerates. After the passing of his wife and musical partner Abigail Henderson in 2013, Meck began writing songs for the first time, and formed the Guilty Birds.
The introduction of bassist Calandra Ysquierdo and drummer Michelle Bacon solidified the group as a rock ‘n roll power trio. In 2016, the Guilty Birds released their debut full-length album, “It’s 4 A.M. Somewhere.” With potent grooves and girl-group harmonies that soulfully blend with Meck’s earnest songwriting and emotive guitar voicings, the album has been met with high praise. The group has supported prestigious touring acts, including Los Lobos and Band of Heathens; earned coveted festival spots such as YouBloomLA, Middle of the Map and Boulevardia; and has received airplay on more than 60 radio stations across North America and Europe. Chris Meck and the Guilty Birds brings a fresh perspective to the classic guitar rock of greats like Jimi Hendrix with the affectionate soul of the Stax sound.
