What is Beale Street Music Festival?

The Beale Street Music Festival is the Mardi Gras of Mid-South. It has grown into one of the largest parties in the United States, drawing people from all over the country to come experience a celebration of the birth of an expressive art form that materialized as the music known as the Blues. Gritty, raw, and full of emotion; Beale Street symbolizes everything that the Blues was born from. Like a mother rearing its young, the Blues took shape from its surroundings and became one of the most expressive musical outlets today. You cannot appreciate music without understanding the roots of the Blues, and you cannot appreciate the Blues without visiting the place where it was born: Beale Street, Memphis.

Past performers of the said event include legends: Iggy pop, Jerry Lee Lewis, Daughtry, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ray Charles, Beck, Van Morrison, ZZ Top, Al Green, Dave Matthew’s Band, John Lee Hooker, Sammy Haggar, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx, Charlie Daniels, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Kansas, Cheap Trick, Creed, Collective Soul, Peter Frampton, Sheryl Crow, Widespread Panic, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Bonnie Raitt, Wilson Pickett, Blues Traveler, Black Crowes, Ziggy Marley, the Allman Brothers, The Offspring, Saliva, Puddle Of Mud, Tom Petty and many more.

Let’s support our very own Sponge Cola for Beale Street Music Festival this coming May. Good luck to Yael, Gosh, Tmac and Armo!
