Tim Whitmer Band
Location & Contact:
In addition to his celebrity status as a club and concert entertainer, Tim Whitmer has, become the entertainer of choice for Kansas City's highest profile corporate and social events.
Whitmer epitomizes Kansas City's swing jazz legacy. Swing represents an era of jazz music most listeners associate with Duke Ellington or Count Basie. Swing's accessible style focuses on melody highlighted by solo instrumental improvisations which are intelligible interpretations of the original tune. Audiences are familiar with the up tempo swing hits "Kansas City," "In the Mood," and "Route 66." Ballads such as "Unforgettable" and "Come Rain or Come Shine" originated in swing's era. Without trying to be all things to all people, swing jazz appeals to a broad range of ages and tastes. Younger listeners enjoy the retrospective sound popularized by Harry Connick, Jr.'s movie soundtracks and rejuvenated by Tony Bennett's vocal albums. Older audiences nostalgically relive the swing era itself.
