    Opening night party for Million Dollar Quartet at Rolling Stone Restaurant


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CherryLA told me, 'The party was fun since I got to talk to the cast about what it's like to be on the road, how exciting it is to be in LA, that they love the costumes (the woman loves her outfit!) and they love the music/history.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I attended the Opening Night Party for the Million Dollar Quartet with the cast from of the show. In attendance was Derek Keeling who plays Johnny Cash, Cody Slaughter who’s Elvis Presley, Martin Kaye who’s Jerry Lee Lewis, Lee Ferris who’s Carl Perkins, Christopher Ryan Grant plays Sam Phillips the ‘Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll’, Kelly Lamont is Dyanne, Billy Shaffer is Fluke on Drums and Chuck Zayas is Jay Perkins the Bass Player.

    MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is set on December 4, 1956, when an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together. Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll” who was responsible for launching the careers of each icon, brought the four legendary musicians together at the Sun Records storefront studio in Memphis for the first and only time. The resulting evening became known as one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Who Do You Love?," "Matchbox," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more.
