Welcome to the Kansas Music Hall Of Fame

The Kansas Music Hall of Fame was established on January 15th, 2005 with our first induction ceremony at Liberty Hall, Lawrence, Kansas. At the podium, Governor Kathleen Sebelius read an official state proclamation making January 15th, 2005 “Kansas Music Hall of Fame Day.”

The mission of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame is to honor the music, musicians and related institutions that have made a significant contribution to Kansas and the Greater Kansas City area. Our purpose is to recognize those of the past, present and encourage those of the future.

Each year starting July 1st we have a Voice Your Choice Membership Kick-Off which is a vote by the membership to select next year’s inductees. Click on Become a Member Select a member/donor category. You will receive an electronic ballot and other benefits.

We like to make it easy for our members and partners to plan ahead. Monthly sustained contributions help to promote the fiscal responsibility of our organization. You are welcome to participate through our monthly giving plan. See Become a Member. We also accept donations

From Allen Blasco, president.
With a heavy heart, I must report that my dear friend and fellow board member, vice president Danny Fleming of Beloit, KS died on July 13th, 2023, after a sudden illness. He was 72. A founding member of the KSMHoF, he served on the board early on, eventually becoming vice-president. Danny had a vast knowledge of Kansas music and musicians, and ran the day to day operation of the organization (merchandise sales, membership, etc.). Together with his wife Lynn (secretary/ treasurer), they are the heart and soul of the KSMHoF, and his loss is irreplaceable. Deepest condolences are sent to his wife Lynn, his family, friends, and all who ever had the great fortune to know him.
In 2016, Danny Fleming was inducted into the KSMHoF with his band Billy Bob & the Belaires.
