Four Legends… A once in a lifetime recording
On December 4, 1956, a twist of fate brought together Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley.
They were brought together in Memphis, Tennessee at the Sun Records’ storefront studio. Sam Phillips, also known as the “Father of Rock n’ Roll”, is who discovered them.
The recording session retains its historical significance as a landmark event in the age of Rock n’ Roll, and a milestone for the genre in the ever-changing world of the 20th century popular culture and mass media. In the decades that ensued, The Million Dollar Quartet in 1956 has often been referred to as the “Mount Rushmore of Rock n’ Roll.”
The four musicians didn’t always see eye to eye in the time they were together, but the one thing that did unite them was their love of rock ’n’ roll.
Million Dollar Quartet captures the contagious spirit, freewheeling excitement, and thrilling sounds of the once-in-a-life-time event where four of music’s best talents came together. Featuring a score of rock hits, including Blue Suede Shoes, Fever, That’s All Right, Sixteen Tons, Great Balls of Fire, Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, Who Do You Love?, Matchbox, Folsom Prison Blues, Hound Dog and many more, this Built by Barn production is sure to give you an unforgettable night that made rock’n’roll history!
