BPACC will continue Fifties February with a performance by Sun Rising, a tribute band dedicated to the 1950’s, on Saturday 21 February at 8pm.
Sun Rising will pay homage to some of Memphis’ finest musicians, including Elvis, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Sun Rising, formed by David Cosma and Damon Smith, is an Australian tribute to the classic sounds of Sun Records, the iconic label that helped shepherd and ultimately define rock n’ roll and the genres that followed it. Since launching the show The Songs That Made Memphis in 2012, the band has played to sell-out audiences across the country.
“Sun Rising will take the audience through a chronological tour of Memphis’ famed Sun Records, focusing on the early period of 1950 – 1957,” said Matt Scholten, BPACC’s Artistic Director.
“Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Rufus Thomas Jnr, Howlin' Wolf and many more all had one thing in common: they all launched their careers at the famous Sun Record Company in Memphis,” he said.
“Sun Rising’s performances are full of passion, and they will have the audience reliving the amazing music and classic stories of Sun’s early years.”
The performance will follow the fifties theme set by the screening of the classic musical Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John on February 8 at 2pm.
Tickets for Sun Rising are $35 for adults, $31 for seniors, $29 for concession holders, and $19 for children.
Tickets for Grease are $13.50 for adults, $11.50 for concession holders and $9.50 for children.
