We visited as part of a Backbeat Tour. Although there's not an awful lot to see, it was a privilege to stand on the stage where Elvis delivered his first paid performance. A must-see for Elvis fans!

Didn't see a performance here, it was part of my Memphis bus tour because this is the first place Elvis performed. We were able to get out and get ON THE VERY STAGE, so that was cool. If you're in the area, why not stop?

We visited here while on the Mojo Music Tour. It was interesting to see that first public venue. We didn't get to check out any more of the park area, but stepping on that stage was a fun experience!

When we were here there was a local band playing and no charge for watching. They were pretty good and even from the back a person had a good view.

It is a nice place for a good picture. Park is very nice and very well maintained. Nice place for a live music. Was not able to attend any as there were none scheduled.
