Sun Rising Brightly at the Potato Shed

Journey back to the birth of rock n’ roll when you venture to the Potato Shed, Saturday 2 March to see Sun Rising: The Songs that Made Memphis.

The story of Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Studio is brought to life through the songs that transformed the studio into a touch-stone for all who love and appreciate the roots of rock n’ roll – and for the musicians who got their first break in the fickle world of music.

Elvis; B.B. King; Johnny Cash; Howlin’ Wolf; Jerry Lee Lewis; Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison are just a few of the big names whose songs were first recorded at Sun Studio and are featured in Sun Rising: the Songs that Made Memphis.

Melbourne musicians and songwriters Damon Smith and Dave Cosma have crafted a show that will have you feeling as though you are at Sun Studio as they tell the remarkable story of the Memphis studio that would go on to transform rock n’ roll and the many musicians who are bywords for this enduring musical style.

Book now in person at the Potato Shed box office, call 5251 1998 or you can book at any City of Greater Geelong Customer Service centre.

One night only, this is a show not to be missed. Always something on at the Shed, hope to see you there!
