Legendary Bar-Kays Receives Proclamation From The City Of Memphis


The city of Memphis recently awarded The Legendary Bar-Kays with a proclamation. The Bar-Kays has been performing world-wide for 50 years. The city of Memphis paid homage to them for their hard work and not forgetting where it all started.

For 50 years, the premier band that originated at Stax, has been a powerhouse of the fusion of funk and R&B. They continue to make strides in the music industry with the success of projects such as “Grown Folks” that reached the Top 10 on the Adult R&B Billboard Charts. The iconic band prepares to release “Up and Down” which was written by Grammy nominated songwriter and producer, Alvin Garrett, who is credited for writing the hit single, “I’d Rather Have a Love” for the artist, Joe.


The show was hosted by  Bev Johnson of Clear Channel’s WDIA. There were plenty of special guests in the building including Shirley Brown, Judge Joe Brown, Dennis Graham (father to rapper Drake), Thaddeus Matthews and more.

Deidre Malone and Rep G.A. Hardaway present the group with the honor during their recent performance at Minglewood Hall.
