University of Memphis to Honor the MGs

Posted By on Tue, Jun 19, 2007 at 4:00 AM

On June 22nd, the University of Memphis will honor the seminal Memphis musicians, the MGs, at a luncheon. But "Green Onions" won’t be on the menu. It's all about the barbecue.

The University of Memphis College of Communication and Fine Arts is set to award the MGs (of Booker T. and the MGs) with the Distinguished Achievement Award in the Creative and Performing Arts. Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and the late Al Jackson will be honored. Two years ago, the university gave Booker T. Jones the award.

The luncheon will take place 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Rendezvous. Seating is limited. For reservations, call 678-5085 or 678-4372.
