1st stop, playing the famous strip in Memphis, TN & then off to Oklahoma & Texas for the weekend. The music lives on… Some 38 years after going dark, the legendary Lafayette’s Music Room returns to the heart of Memphis’ revitalized Overton Square. Once again, Lafayette’s Restaurant and Bar is the spot to enjoy great food, good local conversation, and some of the best live music in town, seven nights a week.
The original Lafayette’s Music Room was short-lived but still vividly remembered. During the 1970s, it was a small but influential venue rooted in the most happening corridor of Memphis. A key stop on the showcase circuit for up-and-coming touring artists, Lafayette’s played a significant role in launching the careers of such music superstars as Billy Joel, Big Star, KISS, Barry Manilow, J.J. Cale and Leon Russell, to name a few.
