Memphis, Tenn.- Blue TOM Records, University of Memphis’ recording label, is presenting the first annual “THIS IS MEMPHIS,” music festival on November 22, 2014. The event, being held at the New Daisy Theater downtown, is bringing an exposition of Memphis culture all under one roof!
THIS IS MEMPHIS is spotlighting the extraordinary talents of music from various acts based in Memphis. The festival will include local artists as well as artists that are signed directly to Blue TOM Records, with an artist lineup that includes the Mason Jar Fireflies, Deering and Down, Drew Erwin, Idle and Wild, Mary Owens, Don Lifted, Austyn Michael, and many more. The night will take you on a musical journey from roots and folk, to rock, to hip-hop and rap, displaying the many genres of music that can be found in Memphis today.
In an effort to give back to the Memphis community, all proceeds from THIS IS MEMPHIS will go directly to the musicians. With a strong emphasis on Memphis culture, it is only natural that they bring to the table the best of Memphis barbecue, which will be offered to VIP ticket-holders. Blue Tom is also fortunate to have sponsors which includes, Jerry Lee Lewis and Sun Studios just to name a few! They are excited to bring and unite the artistry and the culture of Memphis, TN to the New Daisy! In hopes of making this event annual Blue TOM is always seeking talent to expose to the city and eventually the nation! Please come out, support, and spread the word!
