From the mid-‘60s into the ‘70s, there was no finer blue-eyed soul group than The Box Tops, from Memphis, TN.
Formed in 1967, The Box Tops recorded a string of hits including the worldwide #1 megahit song, “The Letter” (Cashbox Record of the year 1967, and 4 weeks at #1) and seven additional Top 40 hits including “Cry Like A Baby”; “Soul Deep”; “Neon Rainbow”; “Choo Choo Train”; “Sweet Cream Ladies, Forward March”; and “Turn On A Dream.”
In 2015, original bassist/vocalist Bill Cunningham and original guitarist/vocalist Gary Talley teamed up with veteran music industry bandleader/manager Rick Levy to bring The Box Tops’ music back to waiting audiences. In short order, they have performed to thousands of fans all over the USA.
The Box Tops’ show highlights their hit records, and, equally importantly, Memphis music of the 60s. Expect to be treated to the songs that influenced the members as young teens growing up in such a musical hotbed. The show is complete with a live horn section and promises a trip through musical history that is HIP!
