MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET Welcomes WS “Fluke” Holland Dec 15


On Thursday, December 15, Chicago's Million Dollar Quartet will welcome WS "Fluke" Holland to its stage. WS Holland, best known for being Johnny Cash's drummer, was at Sun Studios on December 4, 1956 to record "Matchbox" with Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis when Johnny Cash and Elvis showed up. The rest of the evening is music history.

WS Holland will attend the performance on Thursday, December 15 and will join the cast for a song during the encore. There will be a post-show Q & A with WS Holland following the performance when he will talk about his fascinating first-hand experience during that legendary night in Memphis.

Million Dollar Quartet features Brandon Bennett (Elvis Presley), Gabe Bowling (Carl Perkins), Lance Lipinsky (Jerry Lee Lewis), Sean Sullivan (Johnny Cash), Tim Decker (Sam Phillips), Heather Marie Marsden (Dyanne), Brad Ber (Jay Perkins/Bass player) and Dan Leali (Fluke/Drummer). The Tony-nominated musical inspired by the famed 1956 recording session that brought together legendary rock 'n' roll icons Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley celebrates its long run in Chicago, a multiple Tony-nominated New York run, a long-running London production and a national tour that kicked-off in October 2011.
