Shawn & His Mom at the Mark Chesnutt Show
So, as a "Closet Country Music Fan" he spent most of his country music listening time...either around home or when his friends weren't around or when he was at the family's Lake of the Ozarks property. Country music has always been something I could identify with - the songs were and still are much like my life! The music is REAL and it speaks directly to your soul! The songs tell about people, family, events - both good and bad, our younger and older days and so many songs can bring back a memory with just its melody!!! With-in a split second we find ourselves caught up in a memory - which the song brings back for us! I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC!!!
"When a past partner came to me with the idea of opening a Country Western Night Club - I was immediately interested...in fact, maybe too interested - too quickly," Shawn recalls. With a full time career in the packaging industry - where was he going to find the necessary time to help establish and run Whiskey Tango!?! "My major concerns were dismissed initially, when it was revealed that his role would be one of providing the capital needed to start the endeavor, but once that was done - his role would be a reduced one...and he could remain focused on his current career in the packaging industry...and as needed, he would serve as a financial advisor of sorts and also work with the company's advertisers.
Shawn went on to say, "My experience was very limited in the restaurant and nightclub scene - like none -.other than as a patron!!!" It became very clear that having someone around that I could trust and also learn from, would be one of the keys to our success. I have always believed that surrounding ones self with others who are experts in their fields and letting them do what they do best - makes life less complicated and more importantly, it gives you a better chance at SUCCESS!
On behalf of Wes and everyone at Whiskey Tango, I want to THANK YOU, our customers, for making Whiskey Tango the Hottest, Largest and Most Entertaining Country Night Club in Kansas City!!! Our customers are quickly becoming our friends & that is something really special.
