 DCCA presents Tribute to Legendary Performers

When music legends Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis engaged in an impromptu jam session at Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Studios in Memphis on December 4, 1956, the music producer wisely recorded the proceedings. Darke County Center for the Arts will present a tribute to that memorable meeting,“One Night In Memphis,” at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, October 7. According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, the show features a cast with the uncanny sound, look and feel of the original performers. “The audience feels as though they are witnessing rock and roll royalty perform their hits in this exhilarating high energy concert featuring timeless tunes that almost everyone loves,” Mr. Rawlins stated. The show starts at 8 p.m.

DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan says that this special event will appeal not only to those who witnessed these legendary performers in real time, but also anyone who appreciates their legacy which continues to inspire innovative artists. “Although the roots of this music go back a century or more, the lasting revolutionary effect of these pioneers resonates yet today,” Ms. Jordan explained. “And, just as important, this show promises to be a really good time for all concerned,” she concluded.

“One Night in Memphis” is sponsored by Rodney Oda & Second National Bank. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund. DCCA membership contributions also help support this show.

Tickets for “One Night in Memphis” cost $30, and can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or dcca@centerforarts.net, or purchased at DCCA's office located within Greenville Public Library or online at www.CenterForArts.net. If any remain by showtime, tickets will also be available at the door.
