Music by Knobtown Skiffle Band

Imagine hoppin’ a train from Kansas City to New Orleans back in the day. Knobtown Skiffle is best described as “Old Tuney”. They have a bluesy feel, yet it is jazzy and fun at the same time. Maybe a hint or ragtime in there too. They have performed all over Kansas City and surrounding areas!
