A Private Escorted Tour
I will meet you at Beale Street Landing and escort you on a tour up Beale Street pointing out the music history emanating from the bricks, pavement and building fronts which still echo the Blues and reflect the moves and sound of young icons who begat America's major music genres. We will visit the Peabody Hotel and re-live the early music notes and steps taken by those who reveled and performed through the biggest part of this century and from the high rooftop perch summarize the whole impact of Memphis on America's music. We'll visit first performance venues of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Famous Soul and Blues artists and tour a quaint serene island filled with Southern Living homes with Charlestonesque charm.
