Herbie Hancock

Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts


Groundbreaking jazz performer Herbie Hancock will perform with his band in Muriel Kauffman Theatre on Saturday, August 12. Hancock has been at the forefront of jazz innovation for six decades, blending electric jazz with funk, rock and dance sounds. Tickets for the event range from $45 to $150 plus fees, and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 21. The concert will be co-presented by Mammoth Productions. Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at www.kauffmancenter.org.


Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, Hancock also developed new approaches on his own recordings. His work in the 1970s – with record-breaking albums such as Headhunters – combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. Rockit and Future Shock marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. In honor of his work, Hancock was awarded the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016.
