DJ Jazzy Jeff Walks Off Power & Light Stage

55078307The president of The Kansas City Power & Light District now says they did not cut power to a hip hop performance Saturday.

District president Jon Stephens said on Sunday that the popular entertainment district in downtown Kansas City cut the power during a performance by DJ Jazzy Jeff, but said Monday he “misspoke” and that district officials only asked the performer’s managers to turn down the volume.

“We have certain parameters of certain decibel limits and quality of sound,” Stephens said Sunday. “Unfortunately it was maxing out our equipment.”
