Why Kenny Loggins? Well, my friends, UMB Financial unveiled plans for a new music celebration for Kansas City yesterday at its downtown offices. It's called UMB Big Bash, and the "Grammy-winning talent" they've been buzzing about is Loggins. (You know, the man responsible for the disturbingly indestructible song "Footloose.") We're not sure if this qualifies as a "big bash," per se, but at least it's for a good cause: the concert -- scheduled for June 16 at the Midland -- will be a benefit for two area nonprofits, Reach Out and Read, and the Kansas City Center for Urban Agriculture.
For your consideration, we have some mind-meldingly awesome album covers from Loggins after the jump.
First, we have Loggins, bearded and under the sea.
Here, we have Loggins performing questionable dance moves, while looking like a werewolf.
Then again, there's classic Loggins donning a cape and smiling into his own reflection on a moonlight eve while wild horses frolic in a meadow. (Note: unicorn in the background).
Perhaps you prefer something a bit more understated and metaphorical. Observe: Loggins weaves castles and mythical creatures -- with his song.
Well? How do you like your Loggins, Kansas City?
