  • Blues Diva and St. Louis legend Kim Massie joins over 100 musical acts for ShowcaseSTL 2019.
One hundred bands, eleven stages, one weekend. Jack Daniel's presents ShowcaseSTL, an event where local legends, longtime favorites and fresh faces all converge in the Grove for a marathon of live music. This year, it takes place on Saturday, June 22 with a kick-off party on the first night of summer Friday, June 21.

Not only did we poll the public on the music scene's unsung heroes, we took submissions from the artists themselves and then formed a committee of industry workers from throughout the music community. The result is a music festival with the spirit of discovery - an exploration of St. Louis music.

Throughout April we rolled out four waves of artists including Tonina, the Lion's Daughter, the Midwest Avengers and so many more.



Today we're happy to announce the final additions to ShowcaseSTL 2019, St. Louis' biggest all-local music festival. And they include some big names:


Kim Massie Blues, Soul, Diva
