Mayor Cranley Gives Jack White Key to City with King Records Legends

With King Records legends Otis Williams, Philip Paul, Bootsy Collins, Mayor Cranley welcomed Jack White with the Key to the City as he arrived in Cincinnati to headline the Bunbury Music Festival.  While performing at Bunbury, Jack White expressed his support and encouragement to embrace the King Records legacy, as well as acknowledging Shake It Records!

The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation participated with Evanston Neighborhood President and King Studios Chair Ms. Anzora Adkins, Bootsy Collins Foundation President Patti Collins and King Studios Vice Chair Kent Butts, all members of the King Records Building Non-Profit Steering Committee.

As noted by Mayor Cranley and King stars and community leaders, The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation appreciate Jack White and his Third Man Records celebration of King Records, whether it is in the revitalization of a King lathe in Nashville, covering Little Willie John or quoting James Brown in his recent song “Ice Station Zebra.” It makes a difference when touring musicians and stars like Jack White recognize the heritage, just as Ice Cube, Chuck D, Marty Stuart and others have recently.
