Staxtacular 2016 Presented by Suntrust

January 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The Soulsville Foundation, in partnership with the Memphis Grizzlies, is bringing the worlds of basketball, music and mentoring together for the Soulsville Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, Staxtacular 2016 Presented by Suntrust, on Friday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music (926. E. McLemore Ave. Memphis 38106).

Memphis Grizzlies forward Vince Carter among other Grizzlies guests will help host this year’s Party with a Purpose. The event will feature live music from the Garry Goin Band, Marcella and Her Lovers and a special set from the Stax Music Academy.

This year, for the first time, the Soulsville Foundation is partnering with local hotspot, the Rec Room, located in the booming Broad Avenue area, creating the “Rec Room South” in the Stax Music Academy building during the event.

After being inspired by the Stax Records legacy and encouraged by the Soulsville Foundation’s work with at-risk young people, former Grizzlies players Shane Battier and Brian Cardinal and their wives offered to host a fundraiser in 2005, which became Staxtacular. Since then, new Grizzlies players have taken on the host roles and Staxtacular has become one of the most popular fundraising events of the year in Memphis. It has raised more than $900,000 to date.

Tickets to Staxtacular are $175 each and may be purchased by calling (901) 261-6338 or the purchase ticket(s) link below. Tickets are also available at the Stax Museum and at the Grizzlies Den Team Store inside the Grand Lobby of FedExForum.

The Soulsville Foundation is a Memphis, Tennessee-based nonprofit organization that operates the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, Stax Music Academy, and The Soulsville Charter School. In addition to operating the world’s only soul music museum, its mission is to uplift and invigorate the music and heritage of STAX Records to develop young people for lifelong success, and continue to inspire and transform the world through the power of soul music.
