Unlike easily pigeonholed artists, The Marshall Tucker Band blanketed the rock, country, and gospel charts with instantly memorable hits and a sound that still eschews boundaries. Nearly 40 years since their self-titled debut album helped sire the genre of Southern rock, founding singer Doug Gray and his seasoned highwayman keep crafting music that comforts hungry ears like a beef-jerky pillow. In its live show, the band appeals to inner ramblers and lovelorn outlaws with multiplatinum classics such as “Heard It in a Love Song” and “Fire on the Mountain.” Special guests Charlie D. and the Things add an extra dose of rock and soul to the evening, and concertgoers recharge their finger-snapping batteries with beer ($5), mixed drinks ($3.50+), hot dogs ($1.85+), and pizza ($2.50).
