Celebrating 40 Years of The Recording Academy in Memphis @grammy365

Bands, entertainment, events, music


The Memphis chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (now The Recording Academy) was founded in 1973, at the high-water mark of Memphis as a music recording city. As 2013 is the 40th anniversary of the chapter’s founding, it was appropriate that some sort of celebration be given, but uniquely, this year the local chapter decided to give a gift to the people of Memphis in the form of an all-star free concert of many of the city’s best musicians at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park. Fortunately, the weather was sunny and comfortable and perfect for the event, and the venue filled to overflowing before the first act had even appeared on stage.
