Memphis takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock ‘n’ roll and an electrifying black singer. Memphis is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever.
Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves - filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.
