Presley, Perkins, Lewis & Cash pays tribute to and celebrates the legendary Sun Records recording artists Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis & Johnny Cash. The audience will get the feeling they’re a witness to a rock and roll royalty jam session with the music and talent that has stood the test of time. From Blue Suede Shoes and Hound Dog to Great Balls of Fire and Walk the Line the show energizes and exudes pure 1950s rock and roll.
The show opens with Carl Perkins performing his hits while offering up stories about life as a sharecroppers’ son and his musical influences. Midway through his set Carl invites session musician Jerry Lee Lewis to join him where Jerry seizes the opportunity to front the band and lead the audience on a musical journey from New Orleans to Nashville and eventually into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. As Jerry puts the finishing touches on a set including country music, gospel and Great Balls of Fire, the audience will have an opportunity to catch their breath as we welcome Johnny Cash to the stage, with his signature “Hello… I’m Johnny Cash”. As his voice fades, the musical journey through Cash’s timeless catalog begins. Next up…Elvis Presley. Elvis electrifies the audience transporting them back to his beginnings where he went from driving a truck to delivering eleven #1 hits between 1956 -1959. A timeless hit, you won’t want to miss this classic performance!
