What to Expect
Hiring The Newkirks means you're going to get a show featuring true country music. When The Newkirks hit the stage, they will entertain you with backstories to their original songs, as well as why they picked the cover songs they play.
Prior to the event, The Newkirks can provide you with high-quality graphics to promote the event, and will also help promote the event through their website and social media accounts. Have any questions, The Newkirks are quick to respond. Then the day of the event you can expect that The Newkirks will be prompt, professional and polite. During the show, The Newkirks will deliver an engaging performance that is appropriate for all ages. And once the show is over, load out will happen quickly and professionally.
The Newkirks, a husband-and-wife singer-songwriter duo based out of Kansas City, began crafting their collective style at gatherings around the campfire with family and friends and local open mic nights throughout the Kansas City metro. In 2014 they took the leap to the stage, and have since performed shows throughout the Midwest.
Hailing from smaller Kansas towns, Adam and Sara have drawn from their familiarity of both small-town and big-city life, to help shape genuine lyrics that speak of the heartbreak, love, struggles and triumphs experienced in their own lives.
The Newkirks are eager to share their debut release, "Live at the Loft" which captures their unique harmonies and country-folk sound. The 10-song, original album was recorded live and acoustic in early 2016, and highlights The Newkirks’ maturation as artists, as well as their desire to become a “can’t miss” act within KC’s growing, vibrant music scene.
