They came together to make music. And together they made history. Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins join forces for one night only on December 4, 1956 at Sun Records Studio in Memphis for the greatest jam-session ever. Relive this legendary night as you rock along to such classics as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and “Great Balls of Fire.” There will surely be a Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” in the Topfer Theatre for this epic night of music from rock n’ roll’s greatest icons.
Recommendation: Six and up.
Run Time: Approximately two hours including one twenty minute intermission.
