Cincinnati's colorful music history, downtown economy

Good morning people. It's your local history guide, Jeff Suess.

I love the murals of Cincinnati. They beautify the city's buildings with colors and creative expression. But one of the best things about them is you Connection to our history. From canal boats to Kenner toys. And they invite us to do so learn more about the topic.

Take, for example, the giant mural across from the Duke Energy Convention Center. It shows portraits of 10 of Cincinnati's Most Influential Musicians: James Brown, Doris Day, the Isley Brothers.

But despite all my years of research into the Queen City's past, some of the names were unknown to me. And one I needed help identifying. So I did a little research.

Read everything about these music greats here.
