Plus-1 Jam 3: MLGW Celebrates Memphis Music for a Third Year to Benefit MIFA’s Plus-1 Program
April 25, 2014

For the third year, Memphis Light, Gas and Water will again celebrate Memphis Music during the month of May with live music on a stage set up on Beale Street by the Elvis statue on the north side of MLGW’s Administration Building, and it’s all for a good cause to help our neighbors in need.

MLGW is sponsoring its third annual Plus-1 Jam in May, an MLGW celebration of Memphis Music that showcases local musicians to raise funds for MIFA’s Plus-1 utility assistance program. On Friday nights and Saturday afternoons and nights throughout the month of May, musical acts will volunteer their talents at the MLGW tent located on Beale Street between Main Street and Second Street. Some of the acts include talented musicians who are MLGW employees or family members. MLGW is also recruiting many local musicians and bands from outside the Division and from the Mid-South area to perform.

Volunteers will pass donation buckets for visitors to the music stage to make donations to benefit Plus-1, which is administered by MIFA to help those in need of utility assistance.

The event features a wide range of music styles, reflecting the diversity that makes up Memphis and its music. Visitors from all over the world will be able to get a taste of local musical acts while in town for Memphis in May at the MLGW stage on world-famous Beale Street.
