Bring Musical History to Life!

There’s nothing like a live performance to inspire and engage! The ‘Take Me To The River’ band can bring a full-blown pro-level performance to your location, or provide a smaller, intimate performance. Either way the results will get heads nodding and bodies moving.

Performance packages include:

  • The Take Me To The River All-star Band – A band of Stax Academy students from Memphis, plus our Take Me To The River All-Star band. For a performance like you’ve never seen before we pair hot new artists with Memphis legends and put on a full blown extravaganza.
  • Student interaction – Give your students and unforgettable experience. We can incorporate student performances, allowing them students to “sit in” with some of the top level artists that we bring to you. Or we can have student groups open for the event, enabling young musicians to share material they have learned in class.
  • Community performances – Bring out the Take Me To The River All-Star band to engage your community. Invite students, parents, local government and the press to experience the event. This could be a performance that includes a 13-piece band of classic Memphis musicians, a large Stax band, community members, student musicians and more. Or we can offer a more compact musical experience.
