The Beale Street Flippers
10:30 pm – 11: 15 pm
They don't sing or play an instrument, but they are the most popular act on Memphis' legendary music mecca, Beale Street. While music blares from the clubs all around them, the Beale Street Flippers astonish the crowds with feats of acrobatic prowess that are, honestly, unbelievable.
They amazed America as semi-finalists on "America's Got Talent," and they've become the favorite halftime act for most of the NBA and major college basketball teams.
Reba Russell Band
