A tribute to the king of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley takes place on August 12, 2010 at 8 PM at the Michael D. Rose Theater at the University of Memphis, 470 University Street, Memphis,TN.

Megan Murphy presents Back In Memphis with a cast of incredible musicians for one night only. During Elvis Week 2010, we reunite many musicians who worked with Elvis Presley for an exclusive event celebrating the music of Elvis Presley and his hometown of Memphis, Tn. The concert takes place Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 8 PM. Many of our guests are exclusive and will not be at any other Elvis Week event.
Cowboy Jack Clement will be our exclusive guest at our Back In Memphis show. Cowboy was Sam Phillips sound engineer at Sun Studio. And it is Jack we have to thank for recording the Million Dollar Quartet. Jack also discovered Jerry Lee Lewis while at Sun. Jack has gone on to Nashville where he was written countless songs and produced legends like Johnny Cash, Charley Pride, Waylon Jennings and many more.

Cowboy returned to Sun Studio to produce U2 and their Rattle And Hum album. Cowboy was in Denmark last year for our Million Dollar Quartet Concert. It was Jack's first Elvis event in Europe. And now Elvis Unlimited has the exclusive honor to be the FIRST to bring Jack to Elvis Week.

Jack used to play at the Eagle's Nest in Memphis where Elvis sometimes opened and closed for Cowboy. One time Jack even lent Elvis his guitar and when Elvis returned it, he had broke all the strings.

Today, Jack is legend in country music and Nashville. He is still producing and performing in the Nashville area. This is one guy, you NEED to meet. And he will only be in town for our show! So don't delay!

A portion of the proceeds for this concert will also benefit Myrna Smith of The Sweet Inspirations.
