"Marty Lacker is proud and happy to announce that The American Band aka "The Memphis Boys" (right- who played on Elvis' all-important 1969 Memphis sessions) will be honored with a Beale Street Blues Note on Beale Street in Memphis at 5:PM, August 13, 2012 during Elvis Week.
All Elvis fans are invited to the ceremony which they can attend free of charge.
In addition the band will be giving a concert on the night of August 14th across from Graceland behind where the Lisa Maria airplane is located & sponsored by EPE. Chips Moman and I plan to attend if Chips has recovered from his hip replacement surgery by then. EPE is erecting a huge temporary building that supposedly will hold 1,000 people to see the concert."
