One of the truest living embodiments of why Memphis soul music is Memphis soul music will take the stage at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park on Saturday (Sept. 28) night.
The evening's concert has the elements that are present when the full power and reason of music spring to life. Consider the featured performers: the Bo Keys, Percy Wiggins, and the supporting ensemble Opus 1 (comprised Memphis Symphony Orchestra members), and a rejuvenated version of the Mad Lads.
The frontman for the new-look Mad Lads will be original lead singer John Gary Williams. And in that name lies a history we all share.
