On December 4, 1956, an event happened that was musically historic beyond comprehension. A jam session started at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee that featured Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.
It seemed to have happened by pure chance. Perkins, who had already met success with “Blue Suede Shoes” had come into the studios that day to cut some new material. Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Records, brought in his latest acquisition- a singer and piano man extraordinaire- Jerry Lee Lewis. Sometime early that afternoon, Elvis Presley-formerly of Sun Artist, but now with RCA, dropped in to pay a casual visit. Less than 4 months earlier, he had appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, pulling an unheard-of 83% of the TV audience, estimated at 55 million, the largest in history up to that time. He went out into the studio and sometime later the jam session began. During the session, Sun Artist, Johnny Cash, who had recently enjoyed a few hits on the country charts, popped in.
You- the audience will be witness to a rock and roll royalty jam session with the music and talent that has stood the test of time, Rockabilly, Country, Gospel and Pure 1950’s Rock and Roll!
