The show is inspired by the actual event that took place on 4 December 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis. The Studio's founder Sam Phillips was the mastermind behind this legendary meeting bringing Elvis Presley and his then girlfriend back to the recording studio. Carl Perkins was already there recording new material with his band when Elvis heard and pronounced it good. Shortly after arrives Johnny Cash then Jerry Lee Lewis and what followed is wonderfully portrayed in this ecstatic and engaging musical.
