Between 1959 and 1975, the now legendary Stax Records, in Memphis, Tennessee, released international chart-topping hits such as “Soul Man,” “Sitting On The Dock of the Bay,” “Green Onions,” “Midnight Hour,” “Mustang Sally”, “Hard To Handle”, “Knock On Wood”, “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love”, ”Mr Big Stuff”, “These Arms Of Mine” and “Respect Yourself ”. STAX’s trail-blazing artists included the ‘King and Queen of Soul’ Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, ‘Sultans of Sweat’ Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, Rufus and Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers, Booker T and The MGs, and many more.
Johnny G & The E Types are Sydney’s premier soul show and deliver this sensational catalogue of STAX record label classics in the high energy Soul Christmas Show while projecting classic vintage soul footage on the big screen.
Johnny G & the E Types have gained notoriety for their sell out Memphis Soul Revue concerts. Much like the legendary Booker T & The MGs and the Memphis Horns, Johnny G & The E Types have been wooing audiences as the sharp dressed backing band for Sydney’s finest soul vocalists delivering these STAX soul classics in their raw and original form. This is the southern soul that inspired films including The Sapphires, The Blues Brothers and The Commitments – with the credibility and raw energy that comes from Memphis 1967. Dig it!
