The Marshall Tucker Band

Their music has also been featured on the soundtracks of movies such as Smokey and the Bandit, Blow, The Pursuit of D. In 1972, they signed with Capricorn Records, the same label that guided The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, and others to national fame. Jerry Eubanks retired in 1996 and Doug Gray continues to lead the current band of fine musicians winning new young fans as well as satisfying the loyal fans of several generations. It is really hard to believe they have been around so long. Acclaimed lead guitarist and vocalist Chris Hicks recently rejoined the band after a two-year absence. All together they make a great band. Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated.

It made me feel very nostalgic for that time and age. The crowd sang to almost every lyric and they were left with wanting more. In 1980 Tommy Caldwell died as a result of injuries from an auto accident. There were about 1,000 people at the show and it was nice night. The Marshall Tucker Band got its start in Spartanburg, S. I would highly recommend seeing them.

Years of rigorous tour schedules earned the band the respect of critics and countless dedicated fans. But, no matter how old we get, we can still rock your socks off. Their bass player and co-founder Tommy Caldwell was killed in a car accident and whilst a replacement was bought in, the band was never able to recapture the success they experienced in the 70s. Their music has also been featured on the soundtracks of movies such as Smokey and the Bandit, Blow, The Pursuit of D. Doug Gray and Jerry Eubanks with the blessings of the other three continued to record and perform as The Marshall Tucker Band.

The Marshall Tucker Band got its start in Spartanburg, S. Would not recommend paying to see them, for free. In 2006, the group released a live 1980 concert, , and another new studio project, , appeared in 2007. In the early fall of 1973, The Marshall Tucker Band was still a young and hungry group out to prove themselves every time they hit the stage. I saw them at an outdoor concert in a small town in Western North Carolina. The band took several stylistic detours with 1998's all-blues outing and the 1999 spiritual album.

I am not sure how many of the guys were originally but they were all good and it was a lot of fun. They are one of the best pure Southern Rock bands that came out of that era.

Together they present a powerful stage presence as they continue to tour the country and continue to be powerful force in the world of music. The rest of the band members were up to par. Current members include the highly respected drummer B. It's been awhile since I last saw the Marshall Tucker Band. As the band moved into the twenty first century they have continued to release albums and are still a popular live act playing up to 150 and 200 shows a year.
