This weekend, the Memphis chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS – or better known as the GRAMMY®s) presents GRAMMY® GPS, an annual event offering local chapter members access to major players in the music industry and major knowledge.
GRAMMY® GPS is free for Recording Academy members, and it kicks off at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Stax Music Academy, 926 E. McLemore Avenue. Check out the schedule for the day below or click here for all the info. Non-members can attend for $50.
