Description

Sons of Sun - Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny and Me is a rock and roll play about Sun Records, Memphis and the musicians who started their careers there. Told through the character of Sun Records founder Sam Phillips, the show presents the story of the birth of rock and roll.

This Australian show features a three piece live band performing excerpts from 35 songs from Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and many more.The tenacious Sam Phillips is played by Sydney actor Matt Charleston with co-stars Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine taking on multiple roles from Sam's assistant Marion Keisker to Howlin' Wolf.

Sydney musician John Kennedy of Love Gone Wrong fame began developing the Sons of Sun concept in 2011 with the release of his Sons of Sun Vol.1 CD. Award winning Melbourne playwright Kieran Carroll (The Giraffe's Uncle, 3XY OR I DIE) has written an accompanying script to Kennedy's beautiful renditions. Director Louise Fischer seamlessly blends the narratives and songs to produce a compelling, original and heartbreaking blend of rock and roll theatre. Kennedy sings the songs of the iconic Sun Records artists with former Wiggle, Murray Cook and Steven Broughton completing the Sons of Sun stage band. Neil Gooding was the originating director for the show.
