Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
They were interviewed for a VH1 Behind The Music, but the show was never produced because their off-stage lives were too dull.
They started out playing bars in the Midwest. They hated playing cover songs, but had to because the bar owners would not let them play originals. They got around it by playing their own songs and saying they were new songs from The Allman Brothers.
Topeka is the capital of Kansas. That's where they formed.
While they formed in Kansas, they've done the majority of their recording in Nashville, Tennessee, the capital of country music.
Morse, before joining Kansas, had been a commercial airline pilot. He had also played with Dixie Dregs and the Steve Morse Band.
Livgren is a born-again Christian. He recorded a solo album called Seeds Of Change that stayed on the Gospel charts for a year and a half.
The band began as Kansas, then changed their name to White Clover with the addition of Steinhardt. They changed it back before the release of their first album.
Steinhardt's father was the chairman of the music history department at the University of Kansas. When the family traveled to Europe, Robby played violin with several orchestras there.
Where Livgren found success as a performer of Christian music, Elefante became a producer of contemporary Christian music.
John Elefante produced at least one album for the band Scarecrow and Tinmen.
Robbie Steinhardt had a band in Tampa called Steinhardt/Moon for years. (thanks, chas - tampa, FL, for above 2)
Steinhardt is the only original member not from Topeka. He was the concertmaster of the Lawrence, KS High School orchestra. (thanks, Mark - Fort Worth, TX)
