"Shake Rattle & Roll"
a tribute concert to rock and roll legends
Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash
Friday and Saturday
June 7 & 8 at 7:30PM

This Special Concert will include songs from the four artists such as Get Rhythm, Heartbreak Hotel, Breathless, Sure to Fall, All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Folsom Prison Blues, Great Balls of Fire, Return to Sender, and many more! Portraying the roles of the rock legends will be some familiar faces to the Arts Center of Cannon County.

Daxton Patrick portrays "The Killer," Jerry Lee Lewis. Patrick is a local to Cannon County graduating from Cannon County High School in 2014 and MTSU in 2018. Pianist from the age of 9, Patrick has been a rock and roll connoisseur for the majority of his life winning a few competitions playing the sort of music you can hear from this show.

Jacob Miller will be playing as Carl Perkins, the "King of Rockabilly." Miller brings Carl Perkins to life with his electrifying guitar playing. As a virtuoso, Jacob has mastered instruments such as piano, guitar, bass, and many more. Miller is also a local to the Cannon County area graduating valedictorian from Cannon County High School and recently receiving a bachelor's degree at MTSU.

Stephen Hardy will be returning to portray the "Man in Black," Johnny Cash. Hardy is from the South Carolina area graduating from Erskine College in 2016. He has since been traveling around the country to play Johnny Cash in several productions of Million Dollar Quartet. You will be blown away by his likeness and musical ability to portray such a daunting figure as Johnny Cash.

With electrifying energy on stage, Justin Foster is returning as the "King of Rock and Roll" himself, Elvis Presley. Foster's journey to Nashville is one of courage and inspiration. Taking the risk of homelessness, Foster moved to Nashville in hopes of becoming a musician. Being found by Darryl Deason while waiting tables, Foster joined his colleagues in their first production of Million Dollar Quartet at the Arts Center of Cannon County in 2017 and the rest was history. His charisma and swagger can be displayed through witty one-liners and jaw dropping dance moves as he glides through Presley's hits. Foster is an uncanny resemblance to Elvis, making you question if the King is reincarnated.

Come out Friday and Saturday, June 7 & 8 to see these four young men in a concert that is a blast from the past. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased by calling the box office at 615-563-2787 Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00AM to 4:00PM or online at www.artscenterofcc.com.
