CEAs VIP – Madison Theater – Sunday 1/27/13

(Text from Mike Breen at CityBeat article. THANK YOU CITYBEAT)

The polls have closed, so it’s time to start getting prepped for the 16th annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, which will once again honor the best of our local music scene with a shindig at Covington’s Madison Theater on Jan. 27. 

Actually, there is still one category left that you can vote in — “New Artist of the Year.” This Friday at Bogart’s in Corryville, New Artist nominees Jeremy Pinnell and the 55s, The Natives, DAAP Girls, Heavy Hinges, Public and Ohio Knife will perform 30-minute sets at CityBeat’s first New Music Showcase. Audience members will be able to vote for their favorites (in person only); that score and votes from the CEA nominating committee determine the ultimate category winner. The show starts at 8 p.m. and admission is $7. (You can buy advanced tickets here.)

If you haven’t been to a CEA event in the past, know that it’s much more of a “party” than a “ceremony.” There’s the Fashion Trashies (The Fairmount Girls’ version of a red-carpet show, with awards handed out at the afterparty at nearby Covington club The Loft), funny first-time host Ted Clark of late-night live talk show Ted Clark After Dark and the schmoozing — the CEA show is the one night of the year when artists from nearly every genre get a chance to hang out with their fellow local musicians. 

But the live music performances at the CEAs are always highlights (for those who can remember), from a freshly reunited The Bears at the first CEA show to The Afghan Whigs’ “Cincinnati Music Hall of Fame” induction and mini-set at the Taft Theatre to the year King Records was honored with an opening set by Bootsy Collins and a closing set by former King legend Ralph Stanley. 

Potentially making new, lasting memories at this year’s CEA show will be Indie Pop duo Bad Veins, Punk Rock faves The Dopamines, soulful vocalist Jess Lamb, eclectic Hip Hop/Rock band Gold Shoes and Boogie Woogie Blues pianist Ricky Nye (with some special guests).

The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation (which the CEA VIP ticket sales benefit) has also organized an all-star jam of sorts, with a performance by the local Roots artists who participated in the Come Play the Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams at Herzog sessions. 

Tickets to the 16th annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards show are available for $20 through CincyTicket.com. (VIP tickets, which include a membership and other goodies from the Music Heritage Foundation, are also available online for $50.) Keep an eye on the music blog at citybeat.com for the latest CEA updates.

CEAs VIP Package for $50 ($50 is tax deductible and you get $120+ in value)

FOTOFOCUS at Historic Herzog: Annie’s Baby Had A Baby

“Annie’s Baby Had A Baby
October 5 – January 31
Exhibition Opening: Friday October 5, 7:00 pm – 10 pm
FOTOFOCUS www.fotofocuscincinnati.org

Supported and documented by a host of local photographers and filmmakers, this show brings viewers face to face with Hank Williams, James Brown, Patti Page, and why The Train Keeps A-Rollin’ All Night Long in our region. Held in the space where Cincinnati’s first professional recording studio captured “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and Cincinnati’s first R&B recording, a visit to this show itself is an act of participation in this group’s efforts to save historic locations like Herzog at 811 Race and King at 1540 Brewster Ave. Select photographers include Keith Neltner, Michael Kearns, Scott Beseler, Jess Kinder, Brewster Rhoads, Danny Nader, Matthew Andrews, John Curley, Steve Ziegelmeyer, Rick Neltner and more, with The Sally Nixes as curators.

About Historic Herzog and Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation:
Born under the spiritual tutelage and funkitude of Bootsy Collins, the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation formed to celebrate the underappreciated, but vastly influential, impact of Cincinnati music and music-makers. This group hails homegrown music of the masses, by and for the people: the rock-and-roll, the hillbilly, the hip-hop, the funk, the blues, the jazz, the soul, the pop, and the country. Supported by an always eclectic and diverse music community, this 501(c)(3) nonprofit has made daring efforts to elevate the true royalty of Cincinnati music history while telling such stories through the mouths and sounds of Cincinnati’s jumping scene of today.

After an historic marker was installed at King Records’ headquarters, another marker was soon erected at the former home of Herzog Studios. This locale later became the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation headquarters. Owned and operated between 1945-1955 by Earl “Bucky” Herzog, a WLW radio engineer, the studio served as a model for Nashville Row, recorded jazz, rockabilly, bluegrass, R&B, pop, gospel, and classical music and is now the last standing building where Hank Williams recorded professionally. The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation carries on the Herzog Studio tradition by recording new music with live audience participation and events.

The Big Payback: GRIOTS REVENGE (James Brown 5th Anniversary)

“The Big Payback: GRIOTS REVENGE”
Friday 12.30.11 – Historic Herzog – 7:30 p.m.
5th anniversary of James Brown’s passing.

(Cincinnati, OH) The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation will make history with another installment from the King Records chronicles by hosting a star studded celebration marking the 5th Anniversary of James Brown’s homecoming at the former Herzog Studios on Friday, December 30th, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.

More about the event:
Title:  The Big Payback: GRIOTS REVENGE
Where: Historic Herzog, 811 Race Street, Floor 2 – featuring exhibit of King & Herzog artists, pieces by Keith Neltner & Famous Flame Jimmy Railey (CityBeat building)
When:  Friday, December 30, 2011 at 7:30 p.m.
What:  Tribute Performances recorded before a live studio audience including refreshments.
Who: Selectas Choice (Cincinnati Magazines ” Best DJ Set 2011″) Nu Song, Lady Phixx & The Funky Drummer Allstars MC Cypher
Cost:  $30 (includes “Funky Drummer Society” membership & afterparty admission/ $10 (admission to both events which supports non-profit Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation); Free for members
Also:  Audience members are welcome to participate in open mic performances of James Brown and King Records hits

Come join some of Cincinnati’s musical elite as we gather and pay homage to “Mr. Dynamite” and his funk filled legacy. With a career stretching more than 5 decades, Mr. Brown and his unique sound is responsible for many classic tunes like “Mother Popcorn” and “This is a Man’s World”. Let us not forget that Cincinnati’s own Bootsy Collins got his big break playing with James by hanging around the now dilapidated King Records Studios at 1540 Brewster. We would be remiss if we forgot the “Famous Flames” (Jimmy Railey and Bobby Byrd), who backed Mr. Brown until the late 60s with their smooth backing harmonies, impassioned delivery, and intricate dance steps (http://www.history-of-rock.com/james_brown.htm). What about the soul stirring, gospel infused vocals of the Sisters of Righteous featuring Cincinnati’s own Geneva “Gigi” Kinard, Denise Kinard and the late Roberta DuBois (http://www.sirshambling.com/artists/sisters_righteous/sisters_righteous.html)? This powerful trio joined “Mr. Dynamite” in the 70s for a string of hits including King classics “Is my loving too slow” and “Hold on to what you got”. Don’t miss December 30th where we will roll out a special tribute to both of these legendary groups from the King era.

At this years CEA awards foundation officers Marvin Hawkins and Elliott Ruther dubbed the Queen City as the “Most sampled city in Hip Hop music across the world”. It is a known fact that Mr. Browns polyrhythmatic sound and vocal antics spawned many of Hip Hop musics chart topping hits (i.e. Public Enemy/ Fight The Power, LL Cool J/Booming System, Run DMC/ Run’s House, etc.) and most notably earned him the title “Godfather of Soul”.  Even in his passing, James remains a vital force in popular music and CUSAMHF feels that it is time for his “Big Payback.”

We couldn’t do the work of James Brown any justice without teaming with Cincinnati turntabalists & modern griots “Selectas Choice” (voted Cincinnati Magazines” Best DJ Set 2011″). The term “griot” in West African Culture is given to a class of traveling poets, musicians, and storytellers who maintain a oral record of tribal history. While many of Cincinnati’s hidden treasures have been over looked and lost in the shuffle (i.e. original King Records at 1540 Brewster Avenue & the historic Regal Theater) the Selectas Choice crate diggers have dedicated themselves to the preservation of Cincinnati’s musical legacy through the art of disc jockeying.

The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation applauds Mr. Brown, The Famous Flames, Sisters of Righteous, King Records Alum and all of those who helped set the stage for a new movement of artists and griots born to celebrate our town’s musical heritage.

And the party don’t stop:
Selectas Choice & the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation have teamed up for the Griots Revenge official afterparty at the Main Event 835 Main Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. Come rock with DJ’s Pillo, Apryl Reign & Mista Rare Groove as they take you on a funk odyssey through the musical coffers of Mr. Brown and some of Ohio’s entertainment royalty. Many of Cincinnati’s best kept secrets have been locked away and forgotten until now.

An all-star group of local musicians will gather to record a new song, titled, “Come Play The Lost Notebooks,” which will serve as an actual invitation to all the artists on Bob Dylan’s “The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams” album to come to Herzog and play their new Hank Williams songs.  To be clear, this event will be a performance in itself, used to invite artists like Bob Dylan, Holly Williams, Merle Haggard and Norah Jones to come to Historic Herzog and play their Hank Williams song by recording a new song.  “Come Play The Lost Notebooks” is an original which tells a bit of the story of when Hank Williams came to Cincinnati to record songs like “Lovesick Blues” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”

The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation applauds the Country Hall, Bob Dylan, Third Man Records, and all the artists on The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams for finding a new way to celebrate Hank Williams and invites each artist to perform their song at Historic Herzog – the last standing building where Hank Williams recorded professionally.  The event will also feature a listen of The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams and performances of songs from the album by artists like Mark Utley and David Rhodes Brown.  The All Night Party will record the sessions.

About The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams
:  Egyptian Records, Bob Dylan’s label imprint, in partnership with the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s CMF Records and Columbia Records, has released The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams.The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams is a long-awaited collection of previously unrecorded Hank Williams lyrics newly set to music and performed for the first time as completed songs by a roster of artists with a musical and spiritual kinship to the archetypal American country music singer-songwriter.  The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams premieres the first-ever performances of 12 previously unheard Hank Williams lyric compositions newly set to music by 13 artists whose own sensibilities have been profoundly shaped by Williams.
The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams project began with the idea of finding a well-known artist, one who felt Hank’s inspiration and influence, to record an album’s worth of the unheard songs. After veteran music industry manager/A&R executive Mary Martin approached Bob Dylan, a natural first choice for the endeavor, the project evolved into a multi-artist tribute providing a variety of sympathetic approaches to this rich mysterious material.
