The Marshall Tucker Band Will Bring Southern Rock Sound to Tropicana on October 15



ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (September 6, 2016) — Celebrating 45 years of success in the music industry, the Marshall Tucker Band will bring their legendary hits to Tropicana Atlantic City for a live concert on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Show time is at 8 p.m. and doors open one hour prior.

Southern rock favorites since the 1970s, The Marshall Tucker Band created hits such as “Heard it in a Love Song,” “Fire on The Mountain,” and “Take The Highway.” Their song “Can’t You See” was named the #4 Greatest Southern Rock Song by Country Music Television and the #1 Southern Rock Song by UltimateClassicRock.com.

The Marshall Tucker Band earned seven gold and three platinum albums. During the 90’s, the band scored four hit singles on Billboard’s country chart and one on Billboard’s gospel chart. Their music has also been featured on the soundtracks of Smokey and the Bandit, Blow, The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper, Shipwrecked, Crank 2, Don’t Mess with Zohan, Stop Loss, Swing Vote and Taking Chance.

Doug Gray, lead vocals of Marshall Tucker Band said, “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country, jazz, blues, rock-n-roll and all things in between.” The key to their success is being able to change with the times; allowing them to stay relevant and relatable to every passing generation. “No matter how old we get, we can still rock your socks off,” Gray continued.  

Now 45 years after forming, The Marshall Tucker Band continues to tour, performing more than 130 live dates each year. The Marshall Tucker Band is: Doug Gray on lead vocals, Pat Elwood on bass; Rick Willis on guitar and vocals; B.B. Borden on drums; Marcus Henderson on keyboards, saxophone, flute and vocals; and Chris Hicks on guitar and vocals.
