Ken Smith Band at Picassos copy.jpg

In 1983, Kenny Lee Smith opened the doors of Picasso’s so the Ken Smith Band could perform for locals in Bowling Green, Ky. Local artists who gained national recognition, such as Government Cheese and the Kentucky Headhunters, all performed at the bar on a regular basis. It was the epicenter for live music in Bowling Green until it was shut down.
