Million Dollar Quartet
October 5, 2016 @ 9:00 AM
Elvis, Jerry Lee, Perkins, Cash - They came together to make music. Their story made history. Million Dollar Quartet is the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians were gathered together by Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, friendships and celebrations, featuring timeless hits such as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more. This thrilling musical brings you inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock 'n' roll band for one unforgettable night. It was Rock and Roll's best kept secret...until now!

"Drunk History" presents historical reenactments from A-list talent as told by inebriated storytellers.

Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of actors and comedians, travels across the country to present the rich tales that every city in this land has to offer.
In season 3, Waters and the crew travel around America to get a drunk history lesson in some of the nation's most historical locations. Some of the destinations include New Jersey, Miami, Oklahoma, New Orleans, New Mexico, Cleveland, L.A., and Vegas covering topics that include space, journalism, games, and inventors.
Booze helps bring out the truth. It's just that sometimes the truth is a little incoherent.
