Sixties Music Legends The Box Tops To Celebrate Their 50th Anniversary!

Memphis, TN – The Summer of 2017 marks the legendary Memphis blue-eyed-soul group THE BOX TOPS’ 50th anniversary of the release of their worldwide #1 smash hit debut single “The Letter.” To celebrate, they anticipate extensive touring and perhaps a new album that could include obscure never-issued tracks from their 60s heydays, with Alex Chilton. After THE LETTER, the group charted with other hits, including NEON RAINBOW, CRY LIKE A BABY, and SOUL DEEP.

In 2016, six years after the sudden death of Alex Chilton, original members BILL CUNNINGHAM (bass, keys, vocals) and GARY TALLEY (guitar, sitar, vocals) teamed with veteran music industry manager/guitarist Rick Levy to bring the Box Tops catalogue and their Memphis sound back to
waiting audiences. Audiences are delighted with the way in which the show interweaves music and stories that connect the group to the explosive and all important Memphis music scene. Levy brought the band to Talent Consultants International (TCI), now their exclusive booking agency. It’s been a great first year back, with shows in Indiana, Iowa, Florida, Maryland, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and more. The band finished August with 3 successful nights at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah (home of Sundance Film Festival.)

Upcoming 2016 shows:
SEPT 17 NYCB Theatre at Westbury, New York (with Herman’s Hermits, Grassroots, Gary Lewis)
SEPT 24 Holly Springs Cultural Center, Holly Springs, North Carolina
SEPT 30 Grand Opera House, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, headlining Flower Power Weekend
OCT 29 The Casino @ Dania Beach, Dania Beach Florida
NOV 5 Savannah Center, The Villages, Florida (Vietnam Veterans Fundraiser)

Watch for future press releases as 50th anniversary activities and events develop.

Sixties Music Legends The Box Tops Return!

Memphis, TN – From the mid 60’s into the 70’s, there was no finer blue-eyed soul group than THE BOX TOPS, from Memphis, Tennessee!

Fronted by legendary singer, ALEX CHILTON, THE BOX TOPS recorded a string of hits including the worldwide #1 hit song, THE LETTER, and others including CRY LIKE A BABY, SOUL DEEP, NEON RAINBOW, CHOO CHOO TRAIN….and more.

In 1996, the original lineup of THE BOX TOPS reunited and performed worldwide until the tragic and untimely death of CHILTON in 2010. After a five year hiatus, original bassist, BILL CUNNINGHAM, and original guitarist GARY TALLEY have teamed up with veteran music industry bandleader/manager RICK LEVY to bring THE BOX TOPS music back to waiting audiences.

THE BOX TOPS show will highlight their hit records, and equally important, Memphis music of the 60s, especially some of the songs that influenced the members as young teens growing up in such a musical hotbed. The show will be complete with horns, and promises great memories and music for all.
