King Midas and the Muflers Exhibit Fundraiser


McPHERSON, Kan. — The McPherson Museum & Arts Foundation is currently raising funds to create an exhibit for McPherson rock and roll band, King Midas & the Muflers.

According to the museum, the band has been billed as “Kansas’ Longest Performing Rock & Roll Band”, and got its start in 1965. After 58 years, the band is still performing and in 2006, King Midas was inducted to the Kansas Music Hall of Fame.

To honor the band, the museum would like to create an exhibit with a stage and all. A special account has been created specifically and you can donate online here or send a check made out to the McPherson Museum with King Midas Exhibit written on the memo line. 

If you’re in the area this weekend, King Midas is playing in Galva, Kan., tonight, (Friday Aug.18). There will be a street dance / concert to celebrate the 90th Anniversary Celebration for HCI at 211 S. Main Street in Galva. The show runs from 7-10 p.m. and it is open to the public. There will be an opportunity to donate for the museum exhibit at the show if you wish to. 

In case you miss them tonight, the band will perform on Saturday, the 19th in Lindsborg for the annual street dance / concert on Main Street. The dance is free and open to the public there as well. The music will start at 8 p.m. and run until 11 p.m.
