The Memphis Music Hall of Fame aims to pay tribute to those Memphis icons whose enduring contributions to music are still inspiring and influencing people worldwide. Each year, the MMHOF Nominating Committee selects from among those many artists and visionaries whose impact on music and pop culture merits recognition. No city compares to Memphis regarding wealth of musical talent… hundreds of legendary groups and individuals whose music placed Memphis on the world map and changed the cultural complexion of the planet forever … each worthy of Hall of Fame recognition.
The 2017 Memphis Music Hall of Fame inductees are the Memphis Horns, Maurice White, Roy Orbison, Irvin Salky, Cassietta George, “Cowboy” Jack Clement, and Frank Stokes.
The 2017 Memphis Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on Friday, October 27, at the beautiful Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Memphis. It is the Memphis music event of the year! Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster. The evening will present a music-packed concert and tribute to these musical icons, including special star-studded appearances and performances by both inductees and the many iconic musicians who revere them.
This year’s Induction Ceremony will also coincide with the international Music Cities Convention on October 26, which will bring music leaders from around the world to the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll. More information available at www.musiccitiesconvention.com.
