Marshall Tucker Band rode high into TS Casino
The “old school” of the southern rock group known as Marshall Tucker Band performed for nearly a sold out crowd recently at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, and what an excellent turnout it was. With being no stranger to Upstate NY, the fans didn’t take long to get into the groove. Most stayed seated throughout the show, but a few stood to dance. Many times during the show most of the fans joined into by clapping, screaming out or doing the wave. The band consists of Doug Gray on lead vocals and tambourine; Rick Willis on guitar and vocals; Marcus Henderson on flute, saxophone, keyboards and harmonies; Chris Hicks, guitarist; Tony Black on bass and background vocals; as well as drummer B.B. Borden.
Front man Doug Gray talked to audience and said “Thank you very much. We have been around for a long time. Thank all you for coming out to show support.” Doug Gray praised the guys in the band for their fine performance. “Thank you for keeping Marshall Tucker Band alive for more than 40 years,” The crowd cheered for the longevity of the legendary group’s music career. What an impressive job on the drum solo, the flute & sax and guitars. These guys didn’t let their age get in the way. They can hang with the best of them and could give some of the younger generation a run for their money. Their signature song “Can’t You See” was a big highlight performance of the night, proving why it will always stand the test of time. It is no wonder that it is being performed regularly on reality singing competitions such as The Voice and American Idol.
Overall, the Marshall Tucker Band does an exceptional job. They only get better with age. Anybody who has yet to see them play live, they need to put a Marshall Tucker Band concert on their bucket list. Their love and passion for the southern rock genre is infectious. 5 Star rating concert, only a matter of time these guys will be in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
