Goner Fest ~ All Memphis Music ~ Memphis ~

AllMemphisMusic.com fully supports Goner Fest 8 !!

Tickets are now on sale for Goner Records’ eighth annual international music festival, which will take place September 22-25, 2011, in Memphis, TN. Goner Fest 8 will include three evening showcases at the Hi-Tone, a Saturday afternoon ten band blowout at Murphy’s, opening and closing shows at the Goner Record Shop, and various daytime shows throughout the weekend. The festival will bring together 35 bands from all over the world for three days and nights of rock and roll mayhem. Attendance for Goner Fest 8 is anticipated to top 2500 people for the weekend; as many as half of whom will be coming from outside of Memphis. Previous festivals have attracted rock and roll fans from Austria, Japan, Germany, Italy, Spain, Wales, Holland, France, England, Australia, Croatia, Tasmania, and Canada. And Vermont!
In its short life span, Goner Fest has quickly increased the size of its blip on the radar of mainstream independent music. Paste said it “tends to fill three days with so much overdriven, yelp-tastic rock 'n' roll that, for the slightest moment, the city of Memphis becomes one big parents' garage.” Blurt called Goner Fest “a rock n roll mainline that is the perfect antidote for all those other festivals.”

The story of 'Elvis is Back'-
The first album by Presley after his military discharge from the Army, the first day of its sessions were attended by The Colonel , his assistant Tom Dishin and representatives from RCA in a show of interest regarding whether or not Elvis still "had it" after two years in uniform. His long-serving guitarist ,Scotty Moore, pianist Floyd Cramer, and drummer D.J. Fontana had returned, along with his back-up vocal quartet , The Jordanaires,  but the other musicians had only played on one previous session with Elvis.

The 'Elvis is Back' album is argued by many that it is the best album Elvis recorded. New Nashville musicians, improved recording three-track technology, and the first CD since some said, 
 "Has Elvis lost it"? Five # 1 singles would dispel any notions. Here's your chance to win a copy!
