Fans say...

"Memphis Jones offers an experience to go along with the music. A window allowing you to look into the history of Blues & Rock & Roll. We considered this show kind of an interactive experience. Yes, they are good, but for all my musician buddies, the quality of this show is so high that when seen, you will get lost in the presentation and forget all the critiquing and enjoy yourself !!!"
~ Robert


"We were lucky enough during our 2 days in Memphis to see you in BBKings blues club where you not just entertained us with your fantastic music but you also educated is between songs with your deep knowledge of the music and the history of the recordings of the original songs you performed. Now back in UK still buzzing from the American experience. Thanks y'all." 
~ Clive
