Mixtapes and Mixology
About This Show
Jonathan Bender mashes up the Kansas City music and cocktail scene in Mixtapes and Mixology. We take one track from a local artist, give it to a local bartender, and ask them to make us a drink based on how the song makes them feel. Along the way, we dive into the world of that band, that bartender, and that cocktail. #MakeMeAMix.

Yes You Are & Kenny Cohrs
Yes You Are is whirlwind of intentional destiny. It’s a second stand for front woman Kianna Alarid (formerly of Tilly and The Wall), who has paired with local Jared White to create a unique pop buzz. Alarid and White form the heartbeat of the five-piece band, which always seems secure with a little bit of musical chaos. The track “HGX” not only anchors the soundtrack of “Bad Moms,” it has people singing along and bopping during Yes You Are’s riveting live shows. We took the toe tapper to Jax Fish House and mixologist Kenny Cohrs. He traditionally keeps it buttoned up under his vest, but on this cocktail, “Not Another Sequel,” he decided to let loose a little.
