Elvis Unlimited Productions in cooperation with The Official Fan Club Of Great Britian presents the "Back In Memphis" concert at Germantown Performing Arts Center, Memphis,TN, August 17,2007. BJ Thomas and The Memphis Boys (American Sound Studio Band) will be the headliners, in addition to some very special guests that you will not want to miss!

BJ Thomas is well known for such hits as Hooked on A Feelin, Raindrops Keep fallin On My Head, (Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song, and Just Can't Help Believing which Elvis also recorded. BJ has sold over 70 million records. He has earned 2 platinum records, 11 gold records and 5 Grammy awards.He has 15 top 40 pop/rock hits and 10 top 40 country hits to his credit. In the film, That's The Way It Is, Elvis mentions recording BJ Thomas' song, Just Can't Help Believin.

The Memphis Boys created their unique sound which can not be duplicated at The American Studio in Memphis. They played on countless hits including Elvis' 1969 session at American. They played on such Elvis songs as Suspicious Minds, In The Ghetto, Kentucky Rain, and Don't Cry Daddy.

The Memphis Boys played on more "hits" in Billboard's top 40 charts during a six-month period than any other rhythm section in history.

Elvis Unlimited has recently added Mark James to the concert. Mark wrote Suspicious Minds, Always On My Mind and Raised On Rock which Elvis recorded. He also wrote Hooked On A Feeling recorded by BJ Thomas. We are very excited Mark James will be joining the legendary and very talented cast of musicians we have lined up for this historical show!

Doors open at 7 PM. The show starts at 8 PM and an autograph session to follow. This is your chance to experience this legendary sound live with the very talented 5 time Grammy winning artist BJ Thomas.

BJ Thomas has made some fine numbers. I hope he's still as good today as he was before.

I have seen B.J Thomas in concert at least a dozen times since 1970 and he has been a class act and a very very underated talent and voice. His concerts are great and he loves our main man Elvis and truly respects him. Everybody going to the Elvis concert on the 16th should stay in town an extra day and support BJ and that great Chips Moman Memphs sound from the late 60s and early 70s. I will definitely be there. WE LOVE YOU BJ
