Memphis on Broadway features an original score Byran. The fusion of Byran’s own contemporary sensibility with the early rock 'n' roll, rhythm & blues, and gospel results in some wonderful tunes. This is the story of Huey Calhoon, a young, white radio disc jockey based in Memphis. It is the period of 1950s when there was a huge conflict between the Whites and the Blacks. In that period, Huey finds his love for the Black (African-American) music. The unstoppable enthusiasm and on-air antics of Huey Calhoon succeeds in creating a new white audience for black music. The story is also packed with some wonderful dramatic consequences of his falling in love with Felicia (played by Montego Glover), a beautiful black singer. The Award-Winning Creative Team
