I took my out-of-town guests to the Rick West Music Show on Aug. 21. How lucky we are to have such entertainment right here in Independence! Rick not only is a great guitarist, singer and pianist, but he has the ability to make his audience feel right at home.

His band consisted of guitar players, a drummer and a keyboard player, all of whom are extremely talented. Two lovely female singers also added to the great show, as well as comedy and a ventriloquist! We were entertained for almost three  hours. Where else can you go and be entertained like this for $10.50?

I have been to many music shows over the years, and found this to be one of the best. I was so proud to show my sister and brother-in-law what Independence has to offer.
