    Saturday, July 5 at 10:30 p.m., Main Stage

After a brilliant debut performance at the Missouri Association of Fairs and Festivals convention in January 2003, word quickly spread throughout the regional music industry that The Automatics featuring Spike Blake were on their way to becoming Kansas City's forerunner in the R&B/ Party Band category.

    The Automatics have actually performed as a unit for eight years on their own and as a backup band for nationally famous harmonica prodigy, Brody Buster, as well as other R&B notables. When Spike Blake signed on in December of 2002, the band took on an entirely new dimension built around the words "party, party, party." Spike brought with him his unique, soulful voice and his ability to get an audience totally involved in the performance.
