A highlight of any Elvis festival is following the careers of the Elvis Tribute Artists. Memphis Jones and the 2014 Ultimate Winner Jay Dupuis have more in common than an appreciation for the music of Elvis. Memphis was honored to have the opportunity to water baptize Jay during Tupelo Elvis Festival in June!


Memphis Jones is a fan of Elvis as well as a fan of Elvis fans. He was thrilled to break from his hosting duties for Graceland to give an exclusive Memphis Jones performance during Elvis Week 2014.

A Complete Package!

Memphis Jones is more than a fast talker, he's also a crowd-pleasing performer and his recent engagement at the 2014 Collingwood Elvis Festival was no exception. Performing at the Grand Finals in Collingwood, popular emcee Memphis Jones gave the audience a taste of his hometown and represented Memphis with a rousing version of Hard Headed Woman.

Over the past year, Memphis' performance schedule has expanded to stages around the world, including a promotional tour in the Philipines earlier this year and the kick off concert as well as the Gospel Finale at the Tupelo Fest. 



Most recently, Memphis was asked to perform his own show in Collingwood, Ontario where he featured songs and stories from the rest of the Million Dollar Quartet, John Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. 

"I love to talk about the music that defines generations but I also love to connect with people by performing the songs they love to hear. I'm ready at the drop of a hat to give my all to every audience!"




When in Memphis, you can see Memphis perform live in two very different shows at Beale Street's BB King's Blues Club and Hard Rock Cafe. In the meantime, check back for updates from Memphis from Elvis Week 2014 at Graceland!
