We are Memphis.

The indomitable spirit of Memphians stays strong because We LOVE Memphis!
Mississippi River at dusk by Memphis Jones
Memphians share a unique hometown 
pride because we understand the soul of our city, the roots of Memphis and all it has to offer. From downtown to the surrounding suburbs, Memphis is a big little town with a rich and complex history, appealing to tourists by the thousands who want to put their feet on the ground where legends walked. 

Memphis is home. 
Home of the blues and rock & roll. Home of the Grizzlies. Home of award-winning cultural destinations and universities, faithful church communities and home of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.  

With this same dedication to his hometown, Memphis Jones not only shares the music that grew from Beale Street and beyond but he sings the praises of Memphis to audiences from around the world any time he takes a stage or speaks at home or abroad. 
He has been called "the ambassador of Memphis" and was thrilled to be a part of the latest pro-Memphis project from Memphis' Bellevue Baptist Church and wearememphis.org:


"We are a city of hope, a city of unity, a city of dreams, a city of faith. 
We are a city with potential to touch the world."

A highlight of any Elvis festival is following the careers of the Elvis Tribute Artists. Memphis Jones and the 2014 Ultimate Winner Jay Dupuis have more in common than an appreciation for the music of Elvis. Memphis was honored to have the opportunity to water baptize Jay during Tupelo Elvis Festival in June!


Memphis Jones is a fan of Elvis as well as a fan of Elvis fans. He was thrilled to break from his hosting duties for Graceland to give an exclusive Memphis Jones performance during Elvis Week 2014.
