I had a blast and hope to see you all again next year!

Stay tuned, Elvis fans!

Memphis Jones, Elvis fan extraordinaire, is making the rounds this summer and on his way to a stage near you. After kicking off the season with a concert at BankCorp South Arena in Tupelo earlier this summer, Memphis will head north to host the Collingwood Elvis Festival in Canada for the 2nd year in a row.

Memphis loves the fans that love Elvis and the feeling seems to be mutual. His respect for Elvis and his impact on music and culture extends to fans worldwide. He'll have plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with fans in Canada at the Collingwood Elvis Festival, the world's largest Elvis festival outside of Graceland. Memphis says, "Getting to be a part of Collingwood last year was one of the top 3 highlights of my career. I can't wait to get back and see all my new friends!" This year the festival celebrates its 20th anniversary with Priscilla Presley.

Read more about Memphis' 2013 appearance in Collingwood from Ontario's Metroland Media Group HERE.

In addition to hosting, Memphis will be performing his Memphis music review for Collingwood fans at the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena.
Follow Memphis on Twitter where he tweets fun facts on all things Elvis, Memphis, and the music that originates from the sourthern USA. Keep following Memphis on Twitter and Facebook for updates from Collingwood beginning July 23rd!

Not to worry, Elvis fan! If you can't make it to Canada this year, you can catch Memphis returning as the online host for Elvis Week at Graceland in August!

Memphis Jones Live

As a performer and personality as well as a worship leader and an artist, Memphis Jones' schedule is varied and includes both international travel and private performances. He wears many hats, including video personality and historian, but his first love has always remained music. Perhaps Memphis is most comfortable behind a microphone with guitar in hand. Memphis has received great reviews for his live shows and he is a fan favorite on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, having entertained on the New Daisy, Blues City Cafe, Hard Rock Cafe and BB King's Blues Club stages. 

His show is high-energy and appealing for all ages. Not only entertaining but engaging and informative, Memphis Jones is passionate about his musical heritage and that passion is contagious! His enthusiasm on stage makes everyone in the house an expert on the soundtrack of our lives, Memphis music. From tourist to purist, his audiences are delighted as Memphis Jones exceeds expectations, every time. More than a band, the Memphis Jones show is an event not to be missed!

If you are visiting Memphis this summer or hosting guests, a Memphis Jones concert is a part of the southern landscape you've got to see.

For those that inquire on facebook or Twitter about a public Memphis Jones performance, as in, "Where/when do you play again?", you may find Memphis Jones on stage at BB King's Blues Club in Memphis, Tennessee.

Want to know what others are saying about Memphis Jones?

"Very entertaining and first class musicians. A must see while on Beale Street."

"Memphis Jones was incredible. Not only are these guys incredible musically, MJ tells the stories behind the songs - of the performers, songwriters, and studio gurus that made the Memphis sound famous."

"These guys brought the whole rock n roll story alive for me. The food and drink hardly mattered."

"...Memphis Jones' band took the stage and in no time had us twisting in our seats, marveling at the interesting tidbits of knowledge imparted by the lead singer and laughing at the goofy jokes..."

"Try to go on a night where Memphis Jones is playing. He and his band are incredible musicians and entertainers who know a lot about Memphis and many of the music legends who recorded here."

"Memphis Jones is the best 3 piece I have ever heard, and I've heard some. Don't miss them at BB Kings on Beale St. Energy, musicality, wit and audience engagement make them 2nd to none. Bravo!!!"
