The Memphis Music Hall of Fame aims to pay tribute to those Memphis icons whose enduring contributions to music are still inspiring and influencing people worldwide. Each year, the MMHOF Nominating Committee selects from among those many artists and visionaries whose impact on music and pop culture merits recognition. No city compares to Memphis regarding our wealth of musical talent, a fact proven by the hundreds of legendary groups and individuals whose music placed Memphis on the world map and changed the cultural complexion of the planet forever.

The 11th Anniversary Memphis Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was on Thursday, October 12, 2023. It was held at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Memphis. Last year’s prestigious Inductees include (alphabetically) Carlos “Six July” Broady, multi-platinum, Grammy-winning super-producer, Cannon’s Jug Stompers, one of the most popular and influential jug bands, Jimi Jamison, frontman for rock bands Target, Cobra, and Survivor, Don Nix, songwriter, composer, arranger, musician, producer and author, Deanie Parker, recording artist, songwriter and Stax Records royalty, The Spirit of Memphis Quartet, one of the oldest continually active African American gospel groups in the country, and Kirk Whalum, Grammy-winning, R&B and jazz saxophonist and songwriter.

Each year, new, world-changing inductees are honored at the annual Memphis Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and presented with the Mike Curb Award, or “The Mic,” the official trophy of the Memphis Music Hall of Fame, made possible by the Mike Curb Foundation (above being presented to Sam Moore by former Tennessee governor Bill Haslam, presented by Keith Richards, and received by Justin Timberlake). Handcrafted by Lugar Foundry in Memphis, this 8-pound trophy is now in the homes and studios of over 90 honored inductees, including being displayed at Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis.
