King Records Exhibit Opening

Rockhall.com
Bassist extraordinaire Bootsy Collins will appear at an event tonight that celebrates the opening of King Records: Thirty Years That Changed American Music 1943-1973, a new exhibit on display at the Rock Hall Library & Archives on the Tri-C main campus. Collins got his start as a session player at King Records. R&B icon James Brown first heard him and then recruited him into his backing band, the J.B.s. From 1943 to 1971, King Records and its subsidiaries revolutionized the ways popular music was recorded, manufactured, distributed and promoted. The exhibit chronicles that history, and tonight's event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15. (Niesel)
