Imagine Eleven – St. Joseph, MO

I am co-chair of a Sunday evening summer outdoor concert series in St. Joseph, MO called Imagine Eleven. We are finishing our 2nd summer and it is now a staple of the community. We feature two acts each event and are looking for groups interested in playing for 2015. It is organized by over 20 congregations and supported by local businesses. It also serves as a fundraiser for The Center, a non profit mental health outpatient counseling agency. The monies go into a fund for those who do not have insurance or cannot afford to pay. It is the largest and only agency that provides this service in the NW MO area.

We can pay fees for travel costs and strive to provide high quality hosting for musicians. The sound system can be provided with cutting edge speaker systems donated by top ranked national manufacturers. We have grown to draw 500 – 1000 people, provide excellent food from vendors, and people who will purchase CD’s and merchandise.

Interested bands/individuals can contact me at


This page is a list of potential gigs for your Christian band to play that do not fit into our other lists of Christian Venues, Christian Fests, or State and County Fairs.

Christian Bands and Musicians:

From time to time bookers ask us to help them find Christian musicians to play shows. Most often the shows are a one time event working with private parties (like birthdays, weddings, graduations, or corporate events) and churches who do not usually host Christian music events. In the past we have responded by recommending whichever musicians I knew of in their area. But there are simply too many Christian musicians using this site now to keep track of where you all are from and when you will be touring specific areas. So, we will be posting requests for Christian musicians on this page from now on. We will also put the new requests on Facebook and Twitter with a link to this page for more information. Musicians are asked to contact the booker directly.

Many of these shows are free shows. But remember the advantages of playing free shows. Here’s a list of posts that will help you make the most of playing free shows:

How do you get an event posted on this page?

E-mail It would be helpful if you would put GIG OPPORTUNITIES in the subject line. We will need to know the basic event information: date, place (be sure to include your state and city), style of music you would prefer, who and how to contact to play the show, and pay (please be sure to make it clear if you want free musicians so the musicians who cannot afford to play for free will not contact you).

Musicians: If you are asked to play a show and cannot do it please ask the booker to e-mail me to post on this page. Let’s make sure every potential gig is filled with Christian musicians!
