Owner description: Sun Studio - The place where an 18 year old Elvis Presley recorded his first song. It’s well-known in the music industry as "The Birthplace of Rock 'N' Roll" and the most famous recording studio in the world. Opened by rock pioneer Sam Phillips in 1950, this national Historic Landmark is where superstar musicians like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and countless others started their recording careers. Today, Sun Studio still serves as a recording studio in the evenings while hosting public tours during the daytime hours.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect when going to Sun Studio and was pleasantly surprised. It is small and a fairly short tour, but interesting and informative. It is a must if you are visiting Memphis.

“rave place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Me and my wife went to sun studios 3 years ago, it was one of the best things i have ever done, I want to go back and am saving hard to be able to do just that,. If you get a chance try and speak to Memphis Jones, the man is a legend. You got to try the milkshakes while you are there...Fantastic place ....10 stars.
