Sun Records, The Concert on Thursday 26th September 2019
Revisit the blessed recording studio where the distinctive sound we know and love today was crafted from gospel, blues, hillbilly, country, boogie and western swing by musical visionary Sam Phillips.His trailblazing Memphis studio brought us That’s Alright Mama, Great Balls of Fire, I Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin’, Bear Cat, Blue Suede Shoes, Good Rockin’ Tonight. . . hundreds of hits that would influence the world of music for generations to come.
Sam Phillips was a patient, honest man and a perpetual optimist. In 1954 he combined a modest 19-year-old Elvis Presley with musicians Scotty Moore, Bill Black and then DJ Fontana to create music that infused country and r’n’b.
It transcended musical and racial barriers. The ‘Sun Sound’ was born.
Rehearsed in an exact replica of the Sun Studios, featuring the musical instruments of the era, starring a multi-talented cast of singers and a supporting cast of amazing musicians, the sound of Sun is brought to life live on stage in the official concert show that takes you back to the birthplace of rock’n’roll.
Supported and endorsed by The Sun Entertainment Corporation, USA – long live rock’n’roll. . . long live Sun!
John Singleton, President –of the Sun Entertainment Corporation: “The only show officially endorsed by Sun Records, from the record label that invented rock ‘n’ roll”
Music Genres: 60s, Covers Band/Tribute Act
