Encouraged to encourage.

Some folks are just blessed and some are a blessing. Memphis Jones is both. Here's the story of how a magazine feature, a fashion shoot for "the clothier to the king", a farewell performance at the legendary blues ball and an encouragement award converged in a coincidental collaboration.

The event was held at Gibson Guitar Factory in Memphis, Tennessee.

5) Impressed with his positive spirit and enthusiasm for his hometown, Ms. Tigrett honors Memphis with the Encouragement award at the 22nd Annual Blues Ball.

The Encouragement Award is fittingly presented to Memphis and by the one and only, George Klein!
Memphis loves Memphis. He is both an official and unofficial ambassador to his hometown. At every opportunity, Memphis encourages a genuine spirit of enthusiasm for Memphis and its rich musical and cultural heritage.

"There's no other city that's given the world more beloved music than Memphis, Tennessee...You're a built in ambassador to this city...Call your friends, call your family and tell them to come and spend Christmas with you because you are going to show them the time of their life seven nights in a row!"
