Welcome home, music lover!

"You can literally feel Memphis as soon as you get close to it," says Memphis Jones. And, as a native Memphian with roots deeply embedded in the heart of Beale Street, USA, he would know. No one does what Memphis Jones does. Performing weekly at BB King's Blues Club, he is a fan favorite. Tourists and purists flock to see his brand of high energy infotainment, where he shares "the stories behind the legends behind the songs that make Memphis famous". Memphis is a music lover who believes that all roads lead to Beale Street.

Memphis Jones at Fairpark in Tupelo

Memphis Jones will be performing on the Fairpark Stage in Tupelo, MS along with Paul Thorn this week during the 17th Annual Tupelo Elvis Festival. 



Fairpark is the site of Elvis' homecoming concerts in 1956 and 1957. Proceeds from these concerts were used to buy and restore his birthplace as well as build a youth center. Memphis tells you all about it as a stop on the Tupelo Driving Tour:



With his "Twitter hijack" on @MyTupelo, Memphis has helped to nearly quadruple their following since signing on. In 2013, he was also honored to participate in the unveiling ceremony of an Elvis Presley marker alongside Mayor Jack Reed, Jr.

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.
