Memphis Blue-eyed Soul legends, THE BOX TOPS, are led by original founding members Bill Cunningham and Gary Talley.

THE BOX TOPS are known for their sweet, sensuous, slightly gritty sound, and as you listen you will feel that gentle southern breeze and smell the smokey barbecue as if you are walking down Beale Street. Their world wide mega hit THE LETTER, was named “Song of the Year”, 1967 by Cashbox Magazine, and ranks #26 in USA TODAY’s 100 Greatest Songs of All Time. Both Bill and Gary have performed on numerous other recordings, including Bill on Isaac Hayes’ SHAFT, and Gary on Willie Nelson’s classic, YOU WERE ALWAYS ON MY MIND. THE BOX TOPS show easily fits into multi-genre and cross-generational shows, whether pop, rock, blues, or soul. This is a show not to be missed!
