Flashback Friday – Sun Studios

WG and Sun sign-1

An incredible night in Sept 2016 at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis TN where we got to record four tracks for our first album. Still can’t quite believe that happened!!

The acoustic ceiling tiles in the studio are exactly the same as they were back in 1954 when Sam Phillips first recorded Elvis, Scotty and Bill so to have the rockabilly music of The Wheelgrinders reverberating around the same tiles as the rockabilly music of Elvis, Scotty and Bill…and Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Warren Smith, Johnny Cash, Billy Lee Riley, Sonny Burgess, Roy Orbison et al was just amazing. We’re now a small part of Sun Studios history ourselves.

  1. Met you guys at the pub the morning after your excellent Atomic Festival show, said a quick hello as you were having breakfast… Have since got both your CDs and love them to bits .. Great tunes, great band…wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you live again sooner rather than later. Cheers.Will.

  2. Hi Will! Thanks so much for checking in with us. We remember saying hi to you as you were leaving the pub that morning 🙂 So stoked that you dig our CDs and we’re hoping to come back to the UK really soon. Hopefully we can spread the word about our little trio and get a few more bookings over there. All the best! Greg, Caroline & Stuart.

    1. Hi Will…we’re pretty much sold out of all our merch. We have a few small T-Shirts left but no vinyl LPs or 45s. We’ll be ordering new merch soon and will have it available to ship anywhere in the world.
