Keg #1/ Keg #2

The first Keg was a bar at 1725 West Third Street and the second was located at 611 North Western Avenue in Dayton. Both existed in 1953 and were managed by George M. Taylor, but by 1960 only the Western Avenue location remained, owned by Art Guy. They featured hillbilly music. “Little” Bun Wilson had a band at the Western Avenue location in 1955 before he went to Nashville and became a comedian with Ernest Tubb, prior to settling at Renfro Valley. “Cousin” Bill Hamby, a well-known local DJ and singer, also had a band there.
