1969 began with The Fifth Dimensions hit “The Age of Aquarius” on top of the charts. Later that year Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon and then 400,000 other people walked onto a New York Farm for a Rock and Roll Festival called Woodstock. This evening is for all of your customers who were teenagers in 1969. But especially for those who were either too young, or not allowed to go. It’s time they finally “got to Woodstock.”
This package includes a pre-Woodstock Anniversary stay in Chicago, just as they did in 1969 people came from across America to be at Woodstock. This tour is planned for mid-western groups, who can’t drive all the way at once. It features several unique Musical Events in Chicago so that “By the time you get to Woodstock, you’ll be rockin’ strong, and everywhere is a song and a celebration.”
The heart and soul of American Music beats in the history of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. These are the towns where the inspiration for our uniquely American Music styles were born and where they grew to maturity. On this three city tour you’ll hear Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Rock n’ Roll, Soul, Dixieland Jazz, and Cajun. Why, you’ll even have the chance to write and perform a song of your own.
The first Wed of every December is the U S Tours Blue Christmas Party at Graceland. Enjoy a special evening Mansion Tour. Come see “The Lights at Graceland,” enjoy the Presley home at Night, much as it would have looked on Christmas Eve when the family lived here.

Wrapping itself around the mountains of SW Virginia, is a heritage trail preserving the region’s musical history, and deep back in the hills is a winding stream where people say the music began. What is true for sure, is that people here enjoyed their front porch music at the end of the day and gospel on Sunday morning. It was peaceful and harmonic, until one day, circumstances conspired to create what Johnny Cash called “The Big Bang of Country Music” – the day that music records were born.
To paraphrase the legendary Muddy Waters, “The Blues got married to The Jazz, and they had themselves a baby they named Rock and Roll.” This trip is a little climb down the family tree as we enjoy the heritage and a little music history from the Mississippi Delta to Graceland.

Introducing “Under the Boardwalk” a group travel event based on The Drifter’s 1964 pop hit that rose to #4 on the charts. The song’s lyrics describe an afternoon where a young couple plan to meet “out of the sun” and out of sight, “down by the sea.” It is a melodic and romantic focus for a group tour event featuring three straight nights of Pop and Rock music near the Virginia Beach Boardwalk.

This is the most excitement you can have in three days! Climb deep into our un-inhabited mountains on two Wild and Wonderful Train Rides, then come back to earth (or Elkins rather) and enjoy two music shows that rival anything in Branson or Pigeon Forge. This is as good as it gets!
