Rolling Stones magazine described Memphis’ Big Star as the “quintessential American power pop band.” Their influence on music has created one of the greatest cult followings in rock & roll. Now, Jody Stephens, the last surviving original member, joins the MSO for a memorable Big Star salute. The MSO will also feature the talents of Susan Marshall, Joshua Cosby of “Star and Micey” and Vicki Loveland and Van Duren.
