CHAPPAQUA, NY — March 10, 2022 — On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together four young musicians – Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley. Sam Phillips, the undisputed “Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll” who was responsible for launching the careers of each of these icons, gathered the four legendary singer/songwriters at the Sun Records studio in Memphis for the first and only time. The result? One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history.

  1. I don’t think I am alone in saying I miss the Westchester Broadway Theater in Elmsford. It was just a great location. All through the year there was some show to see all enjoyable whether you were celebrating a special event or taking a grandchild for the first time or just getting together with friends and there were always buses filled with seniors. It was such a great place and that is why there were so many who advance ticket holders.

    1. You are not alone, we miss the dinner & shows at Westchester Dinner Theater also! It was very sad to see they had to close. I am happy to hear there will shows now in Chappaqua
