Though he is a native of New York and now calls Atlanta home, hip-hop and rap artist Andy Mineo is collecting an impressive list of go-to barbecue joints that he has visited on previous trips to Kansas City.

“There’s Gates,” he said in a recent phone interview from his home in Atlanta. “I’ve gone there before.”

He said he also has dined at Joe’s KC, another top-of-the-line barbecue eatery in Kansas City.

Where will he go next time? Will it be L.C.’s? Q39? Or maybe Slap’s?

It’s anybody’s guess.

One thing is for certain: Mineo will have no shortage of fellow musicians wanting to go with him when he and the other acts on the Winter Jam 2020 tour roll into town for their show at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, at Sprint Center, 1407 Grand Blvd. in Kansas City, Mo.

Also scheduled to appear are Crowder, Building 429, Red, Austin French, Hillsong Young & Free, NewSong and Dare2Share speaker Zane Black.

Additionally, the PreJam opening set will feature Riley Clemmons and will introduce singer-songwriter and evangelist Billy Ballenger, as well as emerging rap and hip-hop recording artist Zauntee.

Mineo said he has a good resource for the best barbecue places to visit in Kansas City: his friend Tech N9ne, a Kansas City native and well-known rapper, singer, songwriter and actor. READ MORE!
