11 August 2023 : 7:30 PM - 11 August 2023 : 9:30 PM

Celebrating the birthplace of rock n' roll

Critically acclaimed show Sun Rising – The Songs That Made Memphis celebrates the birthplace of rock n’ roll.
Born from their passion of early rock n’ roll and blues music, this show is the brainchild of Melbourne Musicians, Damon Smith and David Cosma. 
The show pays homage to the greatest recording studio in the history of music, Sun Records in Memphis, and celebrates the songs and stories that pay tribute to the early music of Sun Records. Sun Rising features incredible musical performances, a brilliant narrative, and stunning renditions of some of the world's most loved music.  Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Barbara Pittman, Roy Orbison and many more, all started their careers at Sun Records under the watchful guidance of studio owner and producer, Sam Phillips. It truly is an incredible story!
Sun Rising – The Songs That Made Memphis has toured Australia extensively, playing sold out shows at performing arts centres and theatres as well as headlining several internationally renowned festivals. 
Smith and Cosma perform alongside seasoned band members, Lisa Marmur, Trent McKenzie, Adam Coad and Adrian Whyte.
