Memphis Sound Performs For Tennessee Governor
The Memphis Sound drum line took a break from daily rehearsals to help Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen kick off his 2006 reelection campaign in downtown Memphis on June 8th. The governor’s office asked Memphis Sound to lead the Governor’s motorcade from the Peabody Hotel to the Rendezvous Restaurant where a campaign rally was held.
The corps’ battery section drummed for about a half-hour before the Governor’s arrival to generate excitement among those gathered for the rally. The drum line members were invited to pose for photos with Governor Bredesen and then joined him and his supporters for a barbeque lunch at the world-famous Rendezvous Restaurant.
Memphis Sound continues its daily rehearsals at Christian Brothers University in Memphis through June 23rd.
