Dear Friends and Fans,

On December 1, 2017, I released my debut EP Album, I'm Ready, to a sold out audience of 200+ people. Now, two years and six songs later, I'm so excited to be recording my next album LIVE at Sk8 Liborius!

But I'm also really nervous... This is a big undertaking with a lot of expenses. Your support of this event through ticket sales and donations helps to pay the musicians, production crew, and event staff who will be making the magic happen that night. Any additional funds raised over and above the cost of the event will go towards the cost of publishing the new live album. An event of this scale costs thousands of dollars to produce, and I couldn't do it without your support.

I've been working diligently on this music with my band mates, and I've been planning the amazing lighting and sound you will witness at this event. I am so proud and excited to share this project with you, and I'm confident you will be entertained, if not inspired.

I feel that music is my calling, and I'm so grateful to be able to share my gifts and talents with you. This live album recording concert helps me get one step closer to sharing my music with the world.

Thank you for supporting live music and the Performing Arts in St. Louis. And thanks for believing in me. See you December 1st!

With Love and Gratitude,

Kristen

Be a part of the magic as Kristen Goodman records her next album in front of a live studio audience! This Sunday evening extravaganza starts with a set from Kristen's favorite St. Louis cover band- Sweet & Low featuring standards and popular favorites. The pinnacle of the evening occurs when Kristen Goodman & Her Big Band take the stage to record her original music featuring Cindy Minnis (keys/percussion/vocals), Laura McMurray (percussion/vocals), Celia (electric guitar/vocals), Abbie Steiling (violin), and Andy Hainz (bass). Then the festivities continue as everyone is invited to sing-along with Celia's Yuletide Express to close out the night!

Street parking is available and will be monitored by event staff. Please do not park in the youth center lot.

Kristen Goodman has Entertainment at her very core. She comes from a family full of musicians, producers, artists, and entrepreneurs. As early as Kindergarten, Kristen was singing in choirs, playing the lead in the school musical, and producing her very first shows for a captive family audience in her grandparents’ living room. With ten years of piano lessons, some regional theatre roles, and years of voice-over and on-camera work, Kristen was bound for a career in entertainment and events. In 2001, Kristen relocated to St. Louis and taught herself how to play the acoustic guitar. She has been performing and producing events in the area ever since. On December 1, 2017, Kristen released her much anticipated debut EP Album, I’m Ready, in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 200 friends and fans.

Kristen Goodman currently leads a womxn’s folk rock tribute band called kg lang. She sings and plays guitar in an acoustic string trio called Ghost Light featuring favorites from Musical Theatre and original songs. She's the co-creator of GROOVESHIP, a yacht rock party band. She sings at weddings and corporate events with Lucas Jack & The Midnight Piano Band. She is a frequent vocalist with the Van Ella Band, and has appeared in the Show-Me Burlesque Festival and other shows from Van Ella Productions. Kristen also plays solo shows, private parties, house concerts, and charity events around town.

A true believer in the importance of gathering communities and creating experiences, Kristen produces events and shows specifically for women, for the LGBTQ community, and for people who like to break out of conventional models. Kristen is the producer of a women’s dance called Lucky 11, she’s the co-producer of The Big Gay* Soirée, an epic show and celebration during Pride weekend, and she was the Music Director for the immersive theatre /burlesque experience, Wonderland. 

With 20 years of restaurant experience and a degree in Business & Marketing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Kristen combines her knowledge of marketing, entertainment, and hospitality to create unforgettable experiences for her patrons. A former vocal instructor at School of Rock in Kirkwood, Kristen teaches private voice lessons and beginning guitar and keys lessons to children and adults. Kristen is inspired by helping vocalists gain confidence and improve their stage presence. Kristen is a proud resident of St. Louis City.
