A La Mode will leave you thinking you’ve been transported back in time! You will be immersed in an experience that spotlights the very essence of Prohibition-era Kansas City.
The spirits of Django Reinhardt and the sultry songstresses of the past are alive and well in the present – all that it takes is a trip downtown to see KC Jazz band A La Mode. Led by UMKC graduate, guitarist Clayton DeLong and enchanting songstress Jesica “Baby J” DeLong, A La Mode takes that authentic, swinging, improvisational Kansas City style and blends it with French and gypsy jazz. Joined by KC’s finest players on upright bass, violin, drums, brass and more, A La Mode is a staple of today’s Kansas City Jazz scene. Their debut
album, “C’est si Bón” was released in October of 2016 and can be heard on jazz radio stations across the US.
