Live @ Gusto: 2017 Christmas Show

KC Cafe Radio returned to Gusto Coffee Saturday, December 16 for our annual Christmas show, broadcast live on KC Cafe Radio.  This year’s show opened with a Kansas City-area musical favorite, Steve Sterner and Sundown,  and featured a new voice for the KC Cafe Radio microphones, Joy Zimmerman.

For several years, Gusto Coffee has been the social hub of the Longview area of Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  Events from community meetings to live local music performances are regular occurrences.  Gusto Coffee has also been a corporate underwriter and supporter of KC Cafe Radio, and our mission to present unique, original music.  We are pleased to have returned to bring you this unique holiday music event.

Steve Sterner and Sundown

With smooth vocals, Steve Sterner & Sundown (Mark Nelson & Ron Brammer) deliver a relaxed mix of original folk songs, and popular and lesser known covers. Steve tells stories about life and love in his original compositions, interspersed with songs by favorite folk artists like John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, and Jim Croce.

Joy Zimmerman

 Joy Zimmerman is known for compelling vocals, inventive songwriting, and engaging performances. Her music is shaped by diverse musical taste, violin lessons starting before kindergarten, and plenty of soulful moments. Joy’s lyrics reflect a deep understanding of human experience. Having met few genres she didn’t embrace, Joy’s music is eclectic and chock-full of vocal and instrumental versatility.

Joy has five albums of original music — two recorded and co-produced with Jimmy Dykes in Kansas City at Weights and Measures Soundlab, and three recorded in Nashville at Azalea Studios. Joy’s songwriting awards include American Songwriter Lyric Contest Honorable Mention and five Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase wins.
