                   Bentonville Arkansas 
     seeks to make its mark on the music map

The city wants to become a destination for writing, performing, recording and just enjoying good music.
"People are talking about it, but we're not quite there where it's at the forefront," said Kalene Griffith, Visit Bentonville president.
The city's musical potential captured the attention of Al Bell, former chairman of Stax Records and former president of Motown Records.
Bell helped create what became known as the "Memphis Sound" and built Stax to become the second-largest business owned by a black person in the 1970s. He's president and CEO of Al Bell Presents and was the 2018-19 Mcllroy Family Visiting Professor in the Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Arkansas.
The music industry expert is moving Al Bell Presents and his home from North Little Rock to Bentonville with his wife of 55 years, Lydia, because he said the city is playing just the right tune for becoming a breakout music destination.

  Etta James 


Etta James was a feisty lady with a sultry and passionate voice equally at home with R&B dance tunes and soulful ballads. Her striking good looks, with almond eyes and short blonde hair, made her a publicists dream, even though she had enough personal problems in her long career to give any manager screaming nightmares.
The 5-year-old Etta was a gospel prodigy, singing in her Los Angeles Baptist Church and making several radio broadcasts. Her family moved to San Francisco when she was 12, and three years later she formed a group with two other girls billed as The Peaches (Etta's nickname).  Johnny Otis  picked up on their 'Roll With Me Henry', a response to  Hank Ballard 's hit 'Work With Me Annie', but when they recorded the track it was released as 'The Wallflower' as the original title was thought too suggestive for such young girls. Throughout the late 50's Etta worked the R&B circuit with the Johnny Otis Show and she had regular R&B releases with Modern Records including 'Good Rockin' Daddy' which went to No. 6 in the R&B charts, 'Tough Lover' and 'W-O-M-A-N'. .
