They take over two city blocks of downtown Memphis, fence them in with a six foot fence, surrounding the Gibson Guitar Factory and two of Mephis’ newest clubs – Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero and the Red Rooster Bar.

Founder and General Chairman is the indefatigable Pat Kerr Tigrett. Among the Honorary Committee: Priscilla Presley, Dan Aykroyd, Isaac Hayes, “Sam the Sham” Samudio, Jerry Lee Lewis. And they have a good ole time, as you see.
