Kansas knows return

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 by CAMILLE CAPRIGLIONE Special to The Press in Focus

Violinist David Ragsdale reflects on band's 40th year

Kansas is considered the stuff of rock legends, an iconic and awe-inspiring band that is a fundamental part of Classic Rock radio, yet continues to entertain audiences today.

Kansas performs 8 p.m. Oct 25, Miller Symphony Hall, 23 N. Sixth St., Allentown.

The group remains relevant with new and younger audiences by its presence in video games such as "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band." Kansas's impressive 40-year span was highlighted by its 2013 induction into the Kansas Historical Hall of Fame.
