Folks, we've talked about it for years, and we're finally gonna take a stab at it. We are happy to present the first ever summer Phillipalooza event. This Phillip Phestwill be a little different. We will not have the silent auction, the raffles, etc... this will be a one day only event. The focus here will be on live music on the new Atomic Cowboy Bootleg Stage. The big show in December is expensive to produce. We want to continue to grow and be able to put on a top notch show with national and regional acts. In order to do that, we must raise funds in advance if possible. Proceeds will go to help pay for the big show on December 6 at the Old Rock House and will also be donated to the ALS Associaton- St. Louis Regional Chapter.

Music starts at 4pm. Gates will open at 3pm. If you haven't seen the new stage at AC, you will be pleasently surprised. We are excited to have so many good friends playing this event as we celebrate summer and all for a good cause.

This is an early show because of sound ordinances, so plan accordingly.

Music starts promptly at 4pm and ends around 11pm.
Tickets are $10 and available at the door.

Please share this event with friends and let's spread the word !
See you at the Atomic Cowboy on June 21!

On Friday, June 13th, Mom's Kitchen will be performing at The Demo in St, Louis, MO.  Peoria-based Summer Camp veterans Easy Riders will open with their blend of blues and rock. This will be MK's first appearence at the new and improved Demo!  Come get some!

, Mom's Kitchen will be opening for The Sam Holt Band at 2720 Cherokee in St. Louis.  Sam Holt Band has shared the stage with Shooter Jennings, Keller Williams, 7 Walkers, New Mastersounds, North Mississippi Allstars and many more! 

"Sam's got that hypnotic thing. He kinda gets into that trance when he plays, and all my
favorite guitar players have that ability to somewhat become hypnotized themselves. Mikey
(Houser) and Junior Kimbrough - there was a hypnotic thing, and I think Sam has that. It's
a big part of what drew me to him. Sam Holt Band is heavy Americana, somewhere
between The Marshall Tucker Band and Black Sabbath,” relates Sam’s former producer
and Widespread Panic keyboardist JoJo Hermann.

Mom's Kitchen is pleased to announce that we will be playing The Wildey Theater on May 10. The Blue Skies from Alton, IL will get things started at 7:30pm sharp. Two full sets from Mom's Kitchen. This is an honor and privilege for us. Please tell your friends, bring your family and come join us for an epic night of music in a beautiful theater setting.
