Bar-Kays celebrate five decades in the music business

The Bar-Kays are holding a 50th Anniversary Celebration Gala later this year in honor of their five decades in the music business. And on Thursday, the group is the subject of an invitation-only press conference to announce details of that Dec. 4 celebration as well as the months leading up to what’s being billed as a “star-studded event.”

In honor of the milestone, the Bar-Kays are donating a portion of the proceeds from their anniversary celebration to five charities: The Allen Jones/Marjorie Barringer/Bar-Kays Scholarship Fund, The Down Syndrome Association, United Way, St. Jude and Stax Music Academy.

The press conference will be held at March 13 at 10 a.m. at Stax.
