Herzog studios is in the last standing building left in the world where Hank Williams Sr. recorded his MGM releases. At Herzog Williams recorded four songs on 12/22/48 including “Lovesick Blues” and four songs on 8/30/49 including “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Come celebrate this unique 70th anniversary with Slick Willie and the KY Jellies, Dallas Moore, Shawn Bell and Blowin’ The Fuses in the very spot where Hank Williams recorded.
This also marks the 10th anniversary of non-profit Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation’s (CMHF) engagement of the Herzog space. In those years, the Herzog space has been populated with events, education, rehearsals and new music featuring Bootsy Collins, Philip Paul, Otis Williams, Patti Smith, David Rhodes Brown, All Seeing-Eyes, Tigerlillies, Chelsea Ford, Kelly Thomas, The Tammy WhyNots, Margo Price, The Mortals, The Tillers, Pokey LaFarge, Marty Stuart, Zach Gabbard, Blazing Gentleman’s lead singer, the Harmed Brothers, Scotty Karate, Beverly Hills Supper Club, Lisa Walker, Lady Parts debut and so many more. Not only has Herzog been a gathering place to get results in helping to save the King Records building in Evanston, or to get a memorial marker to honor lives lost and impacted before the The Who 1979 concert, but helped birth Herzog Music which has brought a new music and education center back to downtown Cincinnati with kids jams featuring folks like Sean Geil.
This show marks the return of Dallas Moore, who is the first artist of the modern Herzog era to record and release an album in the historic spot, the sold-out and out-of-print Hank to Thank.
