The Memphis Blazers were formed in 1961 from a group of high school classmates and fraternity friends. Memphis produced many good 1960ís bands. However, The Memphis Blazers had longevity and featured some of the best musicians and vocalists in the Memphis area. The Memphis Blazers often backed soul music artists like The Masqueraders and the incomparable late, great Rufus Thomas.
