All Memphis Music~Larry Raspberry & the Highsteppers Special Show is proud to announce this Friday & Saturday's Specialty show from legendary Memphians, Larry Raspberry & the HighSteppers. The show is a live concert, recorded the last night that the famous night club, Solomon Alfreds, was in business, July 4th 1985. The next day, the building was demolished to make way for a new hotel in Overton Square and the concert marked an end to a club that allowed many Memphis Musicians and national artists a place to play.
The show will air this Friday night (28th) at 10 PM Memphis Time and again Saturday morning (29th) at 10 AM Memphis time, complete with commentary from Larry himself.. The album is entitled "We Have Not Yet Begun To Sweat" and it really captures the band in a wild, raucous mood. Needless to say, the crowd was wild too, as free booze and food flowed freely. It was indeed a hot Memphis night, as Solomon Alfred's went down in style. Hope you like it!!
