Scotty Moore and Bill Black were due to begin a sixteen-day engagement at the Texas State Fair as the "Blue Moon Boys".

They were booked to do four shows a day for $1,600, with all expenses paid. Just before they were due to leave for Texas, Tom Diskin called on Elvis' behalf and they agreed to return for a newly negotiated fee of $250 per show.

This new arrangement would commence with the upcoming tour dates in California.
