The Bill Doggett Centennial

February 16, 1916-February 16, 2016

Born William Ballard Doggett in North Philadelphia, Bill Doggett is one of Philadelphia's musical legends.

Remembered for his landmark multi Gold Record hit, Honky Tonk Parts 1 and 2 from 1956, Bill Doggett was a major headliner at the dawn of Rock n Roll and recording star for Syd Nathan's Cincinnati based record company, King Records.

King Records was also home to other legendary headliners including Earl Bostic, Hank Ballard and The Midnighters, The Dominos, The Royals, The Platters, The Five Keys. The Swallows and the young James Brown and His Famous Flames showcased on King's Federal Records label

King Records is also historic as the nation's first integrated record company. 

Syd Nathan,an outspoken Jewish entrepreneur was very proud of and intentional in his social progressiveness at his record company.... decades ahead of the national pulse.   

Bill Doggett, Earl Bostic and James Brown were the trio of African American King recording artists who defined a label at the height of Segregation and at the dawn of The Civil Rights Movement of 1955-60.

The brilliance and timing of Bill Doggett's music was that it anticipated and directly matched the pulse of American teenagers' fever for "sock hop" Rock n Roll dances.   

The signature Hits, Honky Tonk Parts 1&2, Ram Bunk Shush, Blip Blop, Monster Party....were all about the world of

1956-59 Rock n Roll teenager fever....
