City Unveils Michael Bany Way

1 Comment

The city of Cincinnati memorialized a fallen local musician Friday by unveiling Michael Bany Way in Over-the-Rhine. Formerly called Jail Alley, it runs off of Main Street, where Bany was killed in 1995 following a performance.

Bany's brother Mark has worked tirelessly to recognize his brother's accomplishments and to help the local music community via the Michael W. Bany Music Scholarship Fund. At Friday's event Mark presented this year's scholarship to Jalessa Andrews, who will attend Bethune-Cookman College to pursue a degree in music education.

Michael Bany was a fixture on the local music scene for 25 years, playing with popular local bands such as The Goshorn Brothers, Wheels and The Bluebirds.

That was great for Michael Bany because he really did good accomplishments and a good job as well. Recently, many people were looking for "The Warning" lyrics. This new song “ The Warning” released by Eminem in which he “disses”Mariah Carey, and Nick Cannon. The lyrics of the song are raunchy throughout, and it appears that this feud with Carey and Cannon is not going to let up if they keep provoking Eminem. Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, reportedly dated Carey for a period of up to 6 months a few years ago, the song details parts of the relationship. A lot of people would give a short term loan to get "The Warning" lyrics or music video.
