After we were approached by a customer, our very first night on stage together, who said, “You guys are AMAZING, do you do weddings?” we knew that we really had something going.
Vantage Point is a combination of 5 of KC’s music super-talents. We’ve chosen some of the best music we thought a band could offer. Playing songs from every genre and era – classic rock, disco, retro, country, and top 40 from the last 4 decades.
Why should you hire Vantage Point for your venue? Super simple. We have a fantastic ability to keep audiences on their feet. If you need proof, just check out our resume. We gig regularly in great venues: Ameristar, Hollywood, and Isle of Capri casinos, Blue Springs Concert in the Park, Bikers for Babies, Neon Wild, Freddy T’s, and many more.
Meet the team:
Steve Alsup, lead guitar & vocals. After years of playing the variety circuit in Vegas, Steve made himself a business of teaching and playing guitar in KC. He created Vantage Point 5 years ago and the band has been gaining a strong reputation since. He’s obsessed with sound and his electronics, continuously adding to the band’s gear. His drive to become a bigger and better band never ends and he has the work ethic to back it up. His guitar playing is spot on and he always looks for a challenge.
Amanda McNeal, lead vocals. After 10 years of being a DJ and singing in competitions all over the country, Amanda was ready to dive deeper into music. She has a surprisingly powerful and beautiful voice for such a tiny person. She brings her MC experience and endless energy to the show. You’ll never see her stand still while on stage.
Kyle Willis, bass and vocals. Young and talented, this stunner came to us fresh out of the United States Air Force Band. In 2012 he was chosen by the USAF as its best instrumentalist. He is a real bass-slapper, creating that dance groove that makes Vantage Point such a party pleaser. The BEST part is he sings and boogies while playing, making him a star on the stage. It’s mesmerizing to watch him work.
Bill Graham, drums. Billy studied music in college and has played drums for many of KC’s best bands. He’s the guy you call when you need a good drummer in KC. He is also the solid foundation this band is built on both instrumentally and structurally. He sure takes his drum playing seriously on stage but you can count on him for some laughs in between sets.
Robert Johnson, keyboards. This man is a guru of gadgets. While playing the keys, you’’ll see him whip out a harmonica and a vocoder among other surprises. He is an amazing piano player; When not with the band you can find him playing solo at museums, lounges, malls, and private dinners. He’s given Vantage Point the huge advantage of MIDI sequencing which allows us to recreate some of the inorganic sounds of pop music. We call his craft voodoo and once you hear it, you will too.
