Eric Roberson is making it to the Memphis area this week.  I know it’s late notice, but at least he is coming here.  He’s special guest is The Tim Terry Experience.  They will be performing at the New Daisy Theatre on May 23rd. Doors open at 6pm, and the show starts at 7pm.  Tickets start at $25 per person and can be purchased at Memphis Rebirth.

This should be a great show.  You know I’ll be there to soak up all that soul music.  If you are in the Memphis area, and haven’t heard of Eric Roberson, you should check out this and this.  That should convince you to be up in the spot on the 23rd.

Memphis: A Tribute To Prince

Tribute To Prince

The second event to help fill your weekend, is A Tribute To Prince.  It’s being produced by Memphis Rebirth. Here is a snippet from their site, that best describes their  goal. “Memphis Rebirth Entertainment was conceived in 2006 with the dedication to restore music back to its original soul element and create unity among diverse culture through the concert series – Rebirth of Soul, which will be a scholarship benefit that will give assistance to high school students seeking continued education in Music and the Arts in an accredited college or institution.”

They are putting together this event, that features Karen Brown, Thomas Anthony, Preston Shannon and The Flow.  They will be performing classic Prince songs to give tribute to his legacy of great music.  Also they will perform a few songs to give respect to the passing of Michael Jackson.  More info on the artists is available here.

It will be held at the New Daisy Theater on July 11th Saturday at 7pm.  General admission tickets are $20 in advance, and $25 at the door.  VIP tickets include 3 course dinner (catered by DeJa Vu Creole Restaurant), VIP seating and two beverages are $45 per person.  You can purchase tickets at Memphis Rebirth’s site via Paypal. It sounds like a good time.  I am planning on attending.
