Get there early as... More

This tour was a trip back in time. Lots of music history reviewed to give you an appreciation of who came through these doors. The actual studio is small and seemingly out of place in the current music world but it was explained how modern stars still come to record there because of the acoustics. Fun visit!

Jason was the guide and I had the PLEASURE of spending the evening in Beale Street listening to him, his wife and band entertaining. Fabulous!!! Sun Studio was so full of history and knowledge of the music industry from the beginning.

Would recommend heading to Sun Studios to see and hear where all the music was produced. We had a very enthusiastic tour guide who was great in telling us the Sun Studios story
