Million Dollar Quartet

Three words I would use to describe Million Dollar Quartet: Rockin’ Rockabilly Hootenanny!

Last night I attended a rockin’ and rollin’ performance of Million Dollar Quartet at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

To call MDQ a musical really isn’t fair, its more of a mash-up between a musical and a concert- based on the famed night in 1956 when Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash got together for an impromptu jam session at Sun Records.  This was the first and only time this “Million Dollar Quartet” ever played together.

What sets MDQ apart from other musicals is the cast!  They are REAL musicians playing REAL instruments while acting and giving a bit of a rock n roll history lesson.

There ain’t no fakin’ on this stage- these boys are really playin’.

I could barely contain myself (foot tapping, singing along and dancing in my seat) while the cast strummed and sang their way through rock classics like “Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Who Do You Love” and “Great  Balls of Fire”.

I was so enthralled I didn’t even make a trip to the bar (and for those of you that know me that says ALOT)!

In addition to being music legends, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash were style icons. Their “hillbilly high fashion” influenced men around the globe with a style that was both aspirational and attainable.  No one has ever done more for the black western shirt than Johnny Cash!

You still see elements of MDQ style in current collections such as MAVI, Buffalo Jeans, Diesel, ASOS and TOPMAN.

MDQ do I recommend it?  

My advice is to pump up your pompadour, get in your car and go see it now!

The show is definite must-see and a rockin’ feel-good time!

  1. Awesome!!!
    I saw this show a couple weeks ago, and couldn’t agree more with your synopsis. I actually think it was a really well produced show for what it is.
    I was loving all the style on stage too. I don’t k ow how “Perkins” got his pomp so perfect!
    Great read as always Christie. Great examples of modern style. Great show!

  2. Is it wrong that I’m coverting the Elvis syle now – think I can pull of a female version of that?
