Canvas gets heavy at the Banzai Awards on Friday night

Canvas closed the 21st Annual Banzai Awards show with all the weight and energy necessary to finish off a crowd that had seen some of the strongest heavy bands in Kansas City. We’re talking 9 Volt Junkie, Drek, promising “Young Turks” Cimino, hard-rock veteran Johnny Rocker and even the king of rock and roll himself — in the form of Elvis impersonator Bobby Simkins, that is. (He pulled off a pretty wonderful “Burning Love,” for what it’s worth.)
