Get ready to fight for your right to party!” said Travis Kelce. 

Coming off of his second Super Bowl Championship, Travis Kelce has cemented himself as one of the all-time greats on and off the field. Continuing to score touchdowns in the offseason, the future hall of famer recently hosted Saturday Night Live, created the country’s #1 overall podcast “New Heights” with brother Jason, and launched his own clothing brand. Now, he’s poised to start his own music festival. A recipe for success, Kelce Jam will infuse the KC spirit throughout the event while incorporating specialty curated activations, food and beverage, talent, and more. 

Poised to be one of the biggest musical events of the year, Kelce Jam will welcome a slate of renowned performing artists, headlined by Machine Gun Kelly who last visited KC in July 2022, performing to a sold-out crowd of nearly 20,000 at the T-Mobile Center. The 2023 GRAMMY-nominated artist also sold 20 million albums globally and continues to sell out stadiums on his current worldwide tour. Rising to fame after being the first rapper to win the talent show at the legendary Apollo Theater, the cross-over pop-punk star has had two #1 albums, including this year’s release “Mainstream Sellout.” GRAMMY-nominated artist Rick Ross will hit the stage to perform hits such as “Idols Become Rivals” and “Hustlin'” while Loud Luxury, the critically acclaimed DJ duo, will bring a dose of electronic dance music to the Kelce Jam main stage. Travis will also welcome hip-hop hometown favorite and Kansas City legend Tech N9ne.

Kelce Jam is offering unique VIP experiences including TickPick VIP passes starting at $224.99, which grants access to a VIP viewing zone and the TickPick VIP Lounge featuring complimentary gourmet bites, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, and a dedicated cash bar. In Kansas City, BBQ is a way of life, and one of Kansas City’s most notable restaurants, Q39, will offer complimentary BBQ to TickPick VIP ticket holders.

In addition, all fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the world-famous Joe’s BBQ, which will be offered for sale within the event. Offering a special “Kelce Combo,” Joe’s will blend the best of Cleveland and KC, featuring a rib and sausage combo with a Cleveland mustard-inspired BBQ sauce. Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que was included in Anthony Bourdain’s 2011 list of “13 Places to Eat Before You Die,” published in Men’s Health, and features BBQ staples including brisket, pulled pork, and ribs.

WyoTech Auto Technicians in High Demand Due to the Economy’s Vital Trucking Industry

WyoTech Auto Technicians in High Demand Due to the Economy’s Vital Trucking Industry

Automotive trade school provides a vital resource to the auto & trucking industries as demand for technicians is at an all-time high.

WyoTech, a leading automotive, diesel, and collision trade school, can’t keep up with the need for auto technicians, as demand has never been higher.

According to Fullbay’s 2022 State of Heavy-Duty Industry Report, 65% of the auto fleet and shops surveyed admitted that the top challenge was finding and hiring qualified technicians. The average age of technicians was between the ages of 25-34, totaling 41% of technician employees. 

The good news is many technicians remain loyal once with an employer. For example, technicians between the ages of 35 and 44 have been in the industry for 11 years on average and seven years with their current employer.  

“America cannot run without its trucking and automotive industries, which are desperate for qualified technicians; our automotive trade school fills a need,” CEO and President Jim Mathis said. 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 28,000 jobs will be needed for diesel service technicians and mechanics over the next 10 years. WyoTech’s recent growth in its automotive and diesel collision trade school is impacting the auto and truck industries by training an expanded pool of experienced and skilled workforce in need of employees.  

“I have been in the industry for over 20 years, and while there have been some ebbs and flows for technician needs, what we’re seeing now is something I’ve never seen before,” John Alexopoulos of W.W. Williams said.   

“We don’t have an abundance of new trucks that our fleets can purchase and just get rid of their old equipment,” Alexopoulos said. “The old ones need to be fixed. So, the need for diesel technicians that are trained and able to jump right in is at its all-time high, and I only see it getting higher.” 

“In the agricultural industry, the demand has definitely increased for knowledgeable technicians or technicians that are willing to learn,” Nate Balstad of C&B Operations said. “With the dollar value that agriculturalists are paying per hour for technician labor on a job and their margins being thinner and smaller all the time, there’s not a lot of room for error. So, the demand for a well-qualified, young, energetic technician who is willing to learn and be a part of a team definitely continues to grow.” 

WyoTech recently hosted a career fair in Laramie, Wyoming, on Feb. 15-16, with 96 companies conducting 907 interviews. WyoTech students were hired at the fair, a testament to the company’s vision of offering the best training in the industry for auto technicians.  

“More people are beginning to attend trade schools than ever before. It is really gratifying to see our graduates go through our nine months training program and then get hired by companies that need technicians,” Mathis said. 

The career fair for auto technicians takes place every three months, giving students an important opportunity to display their skills and connect with potential employers. 

“What needs to be addressed is how American families see the importance of trade education,” WyoTech Vice President of Marketing Ashley Chitwood said. “It is not just the transportation industry. It is in every trade this nation requires to grow and thrive. There are ample jobs and tremendous opportunities for skilled trades in the nation, but we are in a shortage.”  

“COVID opened the eyes of many to supply chain issues, the importance of mechanics, drivers, and pilots to get what we have historically taken for granted,” Chitwood said.
