Hi Everyone!
By now you know that the 2014 KANSAS CITY CIGAR BOX GUITAR FESTIVAL is Sunday, August 17th. Like Last year the raffle proceeds will go to benefit the EDDIE BAKER SCHOOL OF MUSIC, a wonderful non-profit organization dedicated to teaching our youth the best things about music--how to make it!

The KCCBG FEST is now accepting DONATIONS OF CIGAR BOX GUITARS and/or CBG-RELATED ITEMS, which will be raffled off during the festival. In years past we received wonderful donations from the UK, as well as out-of-state and locally. THIS IS MY LAST YEAR ORGANIZING THE KC FEST, and I would love to see you and us outdo yourselves and ourselves.

Please contact me here for details on contributing your generous donation. We've been faithful in making sure the festival proceeds go entirely to the causes we say they do, and this year will be no exception.

Also, since this is my final year, plan to come out to the festival on August 17th...to say goodbye...TO ME.

The festival itself will go on!

Blessings to you all!

- Kevin

Thanks! I sent a request to YOU too, so our wires must have gotten crossed. LOL And I'm sorry about not getting back to you sooner about donations. I have trouble getting on here for some reason, a computer glitch. Can't load the page all the way a lot of times. 

We'd be grateful for your donation. You can send it to me here:
