We’re a party-music, good-time, everybody SMILING, Most-fun-you-can-have-in-public kind of Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, Disco, Country dance band.



We are Suburbans


Suburbans is Kansas City’s best good-time dance party band. Music is a sure-fire source of fun. You cannot find a clearer example of that than Suburbans. Refusing to be limited by style or genre, Suburbans cartwheels right past convention and double back-flips into party mode with smile-inducing, head-bobbing, toe-tappin’, hip shaking hits from 1970 until right now.

You can’t get more than everything, and that’s what you get with Suburbans. We’re a non-stop, high-energy blast of musical merriment with something for everyone. We only do songs you know, but not just the same ones you hear all the time. Our set list is an incredibly diverse range of songs and styles from five decades of the Top 40 charts. With world class vocals, top flight gear and an abundance of musical talent, there’s nothing we can’t do.

If you’re looking for a dancing good time, we’re your huckleberry.

We’ll be having so much fun, it’ll be scary! Party with Suburbans at Llywelyn’s Pub in OP for Halloween! You can come dressed as an eccentric world leader with disheveled hair, delusions of grandeur and a fifth grade vocabulary, or a wild-eyed scientist with a time travel complex and box of used pinball machine parts. Just don’t come as some boring, under-dressed dope standing in the corner watching everyone else have a good time with Kansas City’s best party band, or you’ll have to buy the bar a double round of Jim Beam!!! And you’re sure to enjoy our new performance art interlude featuring Brazilian Cockatiels, Manchurian Candidates and an interpretive dance tribute to Charo, entitled, “Free Beer Tomorrow.”


Suburbans is a high-energy dance party band that ALWAYS gets EVERYONE bustin’ a move. We play hour and a half sets with non-stop hits that’ll have the whole room buggin’ out. If you’re looking for a good time, you’ve come to the right place. If you want a little cardio with your cocktail, let’s go!
