This critically acclaimed show celebrates the songs and stories that pay tribute to the early music of Sun Records . You’re promised an unforgettable night as Sun Rising brilliantly interpret the timeless songs and legendary performances captured by Sam Phillips at his Sun Records recording studio in 1950’s.
Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbision, BB King… they all had one thing in common… they launched their careers at The Sun Recording Company.
“This was a show packed full of energy and passion, the set list was out of this world, on stage banter was hilarious. It was brilliant.”
“The crowd was jubilant- moving, laughing, swing dancing and singing the entire show and one rather enthusiastic punter put it better than anyone as she screamed out in joy, “THIS HAS BEEN THE BEST NIGHT EVER!”
Tess Armstrong, ABC Radio.
“Sun Rising rolled through the eras of Sun Records and touched on some of the greatest names from the time, like Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins. This is a band that doesn't just like the songs of Sun Records and Memphis; this is a band that lives and breathes it.”
"Damon Smith on piano is a blues/boogie virtuoso, and Trent McKenzie is a treat to watch plucking away on his double bass"
"David Cosma is keen you get the story right, presenting Phillips and his stable of stars story chronologically, and introducing the songs with a wealth of appreciated information. Helping David with his dream is the fabulous Damon Smith. Smith rips the ivory off the 88s with terrifying slides, yet tickles his way through solos - he is both slap and tickle. His gravelly voice was absolutely spot on for Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison."
