Performing since the sixties, the Wyoming native spent the better part of the eighties touring the country in an Air Stream trailer with his wife and 3 children, towed by their ‘55 Chevy Bel Air. Just picture Spencer's wife Marilyn booking gigs and plotting itineraries with no permanent mailing address, no internet, and no cell phone!
Now living in New Orleans, Spencer is still frequently on the road in the U.S. and Europe. Luckily for his audiences, Spencer has an unusually acute eye and ear and turns many of the encounters with people he meets along the way into mesmerizing stories, some poignant, some wildly hilarious. In response to widespread demand from his fans, Spencer has begun incorporating storytelling more often in his performances and has been invited to perform at storytelling festivals, including the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough.
We are thrilled to be working again with Ann Barnes (owner of Just for Lunch) and Charlie Lawing for this concert. Overton Chapel (home of the Memphis Sound Lab) is at the intersection of East Parkway S. and Monroe, just before the southbound exit to Union.
Just for Lunch is preparing New Orleans cuisine…a specialty of owner Ann Barnes. You will definitely want to come for this pre-concert dinner! Everyone who came to the Bill Mize concert dinner could not say enough great things about the food, and many of those who came for the concert and saw our elegant and delicious dinner said NEXT TIME they'll come for dinner too!
Dinner is from 6:00 until 7:30. If you arrive at 7, that will be a bit too late. The Just for Lunch staff needs time to pack up before the concert begins at 8:00.
We are not licensed to serve alcohol, but you may bring your own. We will have wine glasses.
