Million Dollar Performance!

If you are an Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, or Jerry Lee Lewis fan, this show is a must see for you! If you’re not already a fan, you will be by the end of the show!

Sam Phillips is the owner of Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee, and the man responsible for the 4 men not only becoming stars, but legends. It is very interesting and heart warming seeing how much Sam plays a huge part in giving the men the confidence they needed to succeed (we see a little of that with Johnny Cash in 'Walk the Line') , and helping them look deep within, and pull out what was hidden beneath. Sam was a straight shooter and the results of him telling it like it was produced astronomical effects. History icons were made, and the era of rock ‘n’ roll was born!

Hear Sam’s side of the story, his joy, and laughter with the boys, his struggle with keeping Sun Records alive which resulted in him selling one of his superstars. See Sam’s heart break as he loves the boys like a father as he takes the boys from nothing, to mega stars, eventually having to let them go, allowing them to spread their career wings, and fly to all new heights (of money).

The music was fabulous! You could not help but feel your body moving to their music as you tap your foot to the beat, sing along in your head, and clap along. By the end of the night the whole theater was singing along with the boys (out loud, and proud!), standing ovations, dancing to the music, and the audience roaring for more. It's a truly a magical performance that you do not want to miss!
