Scaled sun songs fringe 800x800
Melbourne blues performer Louis King and Sydney's ARIA winning vocalist Pat Powell will sing their way through a night of songs from the Sun Records era.

Sam Phillips formed Sun Records in 1950 in Memphis where he discovered and recorded influential musicians such as Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash. Although he famously sold Elvis Presley's contract for $35,000, he was a visionary record producer and talent spotter who took the Black Man's Blues and sold to white kids, and is credited with recording the first Rock'n'roll record "Rocket 88".

Backed by an all-star Melbourne blues band, this will be unmissable.
