ROCKABILLY SATURDAY NIGHT AT COOTER’S IN NASHVILLE
Things are really going to be rockin’ at the Nashville Palace on Saturday night, June 14th, when Cooter’s Place presents “ROCKABILLY SATURDAY NIGHT: A TRIBUTE TO SUN RECORDS”. Ben Jones (aka “Cooter”) and his wife Miss Alma are honoring the great Sun Records label with the shindig, which will feature several artists who recorded for Sun, and several other legendary Rockabilly artists.
Sonny Burgess and the Legendary Pacers are headlining along with rockabilly icon Sleepy LaBeef and Cooter’s Garage Band. The special hostess for the concert is none other than Catherine Bach, known to the planet as the one and only Daisy Duke. Other performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
During the day, the stars will “meet and greet” rockabilly fans at the Sun Record Store directly behind Cooter’s Place on McGavock Pike across from the Opryland Hotel and just two doors down from the Nashville Palace.
“I’ve been listening to Sonny Burgess and the Pacers since I went crazy for the Sun Records sound back in the fifties”, says Jones. “Sonny was there with Elvis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and all of those other acts than revolutionized American music. These guys are the real deal and they’ve just gotten better with age. I would challenge any bunch of young rockers to try to keep up with them. And Sleepy LaBeef knows every song that was ever written, I think. This is going to be nothing but fun!”
Sun Records was bought from founder Sam Phillips by the late Nashville music legend Shelby Singleton and continues as a vibrant caretaker of the great Sun sound.
The renowned Nashville Palace was recently bought and renovated by Jesse Lee Jones of Robert’s Western World and has been considerably refurbished to its former glory. “They have done a first class job with the old place,” says Jones. “Besides being terrific folks, they really care about doing things right, and they love country music in the traditional way.”
Tickets for the concert at The Palace will be $25. There is no admission for the “meet and greet” at Cooter’s. Catherine Bach will be signing pictures and autographs at Cooter’s from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.There will also be a private Brunch with Catherine Bach at 11am on Sunday Morning at The Palace for 200 people only. Price will be $10 for children and $25 for adults. HOH Society members will get a $5 discount and a free picture with Catherine .
