MAX’s kansas city is the legendary New York City nightclub that became the focal point for the city’s hip artistic community from the late 60’s until the early 80’s.

In its initial period it was famously often populated by Andy Warhol’s Factory art crowd, and played host to new artists such as the Velvet Underground, New York Dolls, the Stooges, Bruce Springsteen and countless others.  It became a base for jet-setters, glam rockers, artists and celebs, until the scene faded and it shut its doors at the end of 1974.

Reopened in 1975 under new management, Peter Crowley was hired as music director, and Max’s focus went to music.  The new young bands he booked helped spawn, in tandem with CBGBs, the New York City punk scene.

In 1976 Peter compiled a studio album of acts associated with the club, ‘Max’s Kansas City 1976’, to help promote the club.  It featured the first released recordings of Suicide, The Fast and Warhol-era veteran Wayne County, whose title-track gave a roll-call of many of the famous acts who’d regularly performed there.
