ONE NIGHT IN MEMPHIS:
Presley, Perkins, Lewis & Cash
as Johnny Cash
Born and raised in Anaheim California, Neil Morrow always had a unique taste in music. At an early age, Neil was not drawn to the current styles of music but the music that was coined by DJ Alan Freed as “Rock and Roll.”
Morrow soon began to take up the piano and guitar and learned the styles of his favorites such as Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly. But it wasn’t Morrow’s instrument skills that got the attention of others, it was his voice. His singing style has a familiar tone and range to everyone from Johnny Cash to Roy Orbison.
After performing in many talent competitions, Neil decided to form a band and pay tribute to his favorite music of the 50’s. It was sometime after Neil was approached to play piano for the nationally touring show “Buddy, Roy and Elvis.” It was soon after that Neil was brought to the front of the stage as Roy Orbison.
A natural entertainer, Neil has since 2012 been featured as Johnny Cash with “One Night in Memphis” and looks forward to the show.
“One Night in Memphis” is a rocking concert tribute to legendary Sun Records recording artists Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. The show spans 90 minutes of rockabilly, country, gospel and pure 1950’s rock and roll music backed by an authentic and energetic rockabilly backup band that will transport you back in time to a rock and roll royalty jam session. Along the way, you’ll get a behind the scenes look at this epic recording session while experiencing true American music featuring the hits “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Whole Lotta Shaking Going On,” “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Hound Dog,” and many, many more, all performed live without tracks and guaranteed to get Thrasher-Horne Center rocking and rolling!
“One Night in Memphis,” will be appearing live at the Thrasher-Horne Center on October 22nd, 2016. Tickets are available at THcenter.org or by phone at (904)276-6815.
