The MD’s perform The Beatles’ Revolver

Join us as The MD’s — a Memphis-based Booker T & the MG’s tribute band — perform The Beatles Revolver album on the Kemmons Wilson Family Stage at Crosstown Theater.

With the utmost respect to Booker, Steve, Duck, and Al, they are going to perform Revolver as they think the MG’s would have in the ’60s.
