Key Information

Memphis is the birthplace of rock 'n' roll and the home of the Blues. Memphis became a music mecca in the 1950s and '60s with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, while Stax Records developed 'the Memphis sound'. To this day Memphis has a vibrant music scene, with live music each night on Beale Street and across the city.
