Burning up the Blues Highway

Memphis Jones began 2015 with 9,000 of his closest friends at Winterfest in Virginia and hasn't slowed down since! His spring schedule takes him from Canada to New Orleans and also includes his two weekly shows on Beale Street starting in March. 
Memphis Jones performs at King Fest in New Brunswick, Canada this February.
He recently performed with his band at the grand opening of The Gateway To the Blues Museum in Tunica, Mississippi. The museum opened in January to tell the remarkable story of how the The Blues were born, and it features Memphis onscreen in the Blues Lyric Interactive exhibit where he assists visitors in the creation and recording of their very own blues song.

As a favorite in both the birthplace of blues as well as the birthplace of the King of Rock & Roll, Memphis travels the Blues Highway from Memphis to Tupelo throughout the year, ensuring music fans from around the world a window into the stories and legends that originate in the southern USA.

Ringing in the New Year with Memphis Jones at Winterfest!

Q:    What does Memphis Jones do when he's NOT behind a microphone and a guitar? 

A:    He's in front of a camera!



Recently, Memphis rang in the new year in front of Spektical's camera at Liberty University Winterfest 2014. Fourteen years and counting, Winterfest is a New Year's Christian music event hosted annually by Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. State-of-the-art Winterfest 2014 was the "biggest and best show"  to date. Meanwhile, the LU campus is a winter whirlwind of activities and Memphis Jones was there to experience them all, including Snowflex:



While at Snowflex, he interviewed John Luke Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame and future Liberty University student:


Each evening, Memphis traded his Liberty baseball cap for emcee hat and commenced with hosting duties for the nightly concerts featuring Lecrae, Newsboys, and Skillet among others. 



Winterfest was a fantastic end to a fantastic year for Memphis Jones, who logged nearly 25K miles traveling around the globe, talking Jesus, Elvis, Memphis and music. As a Premier Productions artist, he is looking forward to contributing at more events like Winterfest during 2015!


He's not slowing down yet with a full winter calendar, including the upcoming Elvis Presley 80th birthday celebration in Tupelo, Mississippi and Grace Convocation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. In February, Memphis will headline the inaugural Fredericton King Fest in Canada.

If you would like to have Memphis Jones perform, emcee or video host at your event, contact him as soon as possible. His 2015 calendar is filling quickly as more event organizers are discovering his unique ability to connect their vision to the people they aim to inspire. 

"I am a moment-manufacturer, a culture-interpreter, a dot-connector & a song and dance man. 
I'm really just an encourager but I'm a good one!"
