Lonnie McFadden Performing at Lidia's Every Thursday Night!


World renowned tap dancer and entertainer, Lonnie McFadden, will kick off his Thursday night shows in the Taverna at Lidia’s, 101 W. 22nd, KCMO, from 6 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., on Thursday, July 28, 2016.

McFadden will continue his performances every Thursday night at Lidia’s and will include singing, playing the trumpet to a musical format of Jazz and classic R&B and adding his specialty of tapping the night away.

Lonnie began performing when he was 4 years old and gained his knowledge of music through piano lessons, comedy bits, songs, and tap routines, from his father, James “Pops” McFadden, who once performed in a group called “The Chocolate Drops,” with the Count Basie Orchestra. Today McFadden is still tapping to the beat of his father’s footsteps.

“Lonnie McFadden is a class act and we are thrilled to have him share his talents to Kansas City audiences at Lidia’s. The Taverna will be the place to be on Thursday nights for great food and entertainment,” remarked Matt Green, General Manager.

Acclaimed as one of the finest Italian Restaurants in the region, Lidia’s Kansas City now boasts a newly renovated and expanded bar area, Taverna, which invites customers to experience a new bar and cocktail menu.

Lidia’s Kansas City opened in 1998 as celebrated Chef, Restaurateur, and Author Lidia Bastianich’s first restaurant outside of New York City. Helmed by Executive Chef Dan Swinney since 1998, the restaurant pioneered the Kansas City Crossroads Renaissance. The restaurant proudly celebrates their 18th Anniversary in September.
