King Records Month winds down with a free concert at the new riverfront greenspace, Smale Park, featuring a performance by legendary, Cincinnati-born King/DeLuxe artist Otis Williams, who had R&B hits with his group The Charms (including 1954’s “Hearts of Stone”) and also worked on Hank Ballard’s original version of “The Twist” and Little Willie John’s “Fever” for King.
He’s believed to be one of the last original King artists still performing.
During the show, organizers will be asking for audience participation for an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest Twist dance.
7 p.m. Free. Smale Riverfront Park, W. Mehring Way, Downtown, kingstudios.org.
