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. Their debut album had already spawned numerous hits. “Way Out West!”-Live from San Francisco 1973, their latest CD is a time capsule from that period. “We were a bunch of young guys who didn’t know any boundaries” says founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray. As it turned out, the collective talents of The Marshall Tucker Band took them very far indeed. More than three decades later this galvanizing San Francisco performance reminds us how it all began.

Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated. Gray is quick to credit the band’s current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of The Marshall Tucker Band sound. Chris Hicks played lead and slide guitar in 1996 and 1997. By that time he had become well acquainted with MTB’s music: his band, Loose Change, often opened for Toy in the early 90′s. A few years later, after he joined the Outlaws, Hughie and company would serve as Toy’s back-up band when Toy joined them for an East Coast Tour. He has since gone solo and released a CD titled Funky Broadway. In 2008 Chris released his next full length album on MTB’s Ramblin Records entitled “Dog Eat Dog World.” Chris re-joined the MTB permanently in 2012. The highly respected drummer B.B. Borden, a former member of both Mother’s Finest and The Outlaws, multi-instrumentalist Marcus Henderson of Macon, Georgia, plays flute, saxophone and keyboards in addition to lead and background vocals, Pat Elwood on bass guitar, and Rick Willis on lead guitar and vocals, both of Spartanburg SC, are disciples of the Caldwell Brothers. 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.”

    Jeff, they must be in much bigger demand than The Spoonful and Grass Roots who got 10-15-25 for tkts. I see they are getting 20-40-60 for seats.By the way I saw both of those groups at the casino and they were super. Met all members at meet & greet after the shows. http://www.mardigrascasinofl.com http://www.marshalltucker.com

  2. It’s The Allman Brothers and The Marshall Tucker Band at the top of the mountain and then you got bands like Alabama and The Charlie Daniels Band next in line.

    This band was huge in the 70′s.
    They have a large fan base.
    I saw both The Spoonful and The Grass Roots and the Mardi Gras is a great venue for an out door concert.
    By the way every seat is good so don’t worry about which tkt you buy.
