Valentine's Day At The Rear Window with Adam Pope and Munroe SUN
Join us for a Valentine's Show you won't forget, as we welcome back Rear Window veteran and favorite Adam Pope with his revamped Bluegrass/Rockabilly band Munroe SUN! There are some new faces joining some of the familiar faces that have accompanied Adam to the Rear Window in previous performances. This is NOT the same experience as Adam himself assures us, they have stepped up their show to the next level!
“Monroe SUN” is a Nashville based, roots music hybrid of bluegrass instrumentation and harmonies performed with a rockabilly backbeat. They blend the raw energy of their Sun Records era inspired rockabilly rhythm with their respect for traditional bluegrass instrumental breaks and harmonies. Led by songwriter, Adam Pope, Monroe SUN performs original material mixed with fresh, unique takes on some classic bluegrass and rockabilly tunes.
“Monroe” refers to the to the Father of Bluegrass- Bill Monroe. "SUN" refers to the unintentional impact Bill Monroe's music had on the birth of rock n’ roll in Memphis at Sun Studios in 1954. It was there that Elvis Presley recorded an uptempo version of Monroe’s original waltz staple “Blue Moon of Kentucky” to be the flip side of his 1st record release that featured “That’s All Right.” This record established Sun Studios in Memphis as the birthplace of a new genre of music and Elvis Presley went on to forever be known as the “King of Rock n’ Roll.”
Monroe SUN puts on a variety show with songs about faith, family, love, humor, a pig, and MORE!
