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.
