The group plays MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa Saturday night in support of its latest release, October’s “Live in the UK 1976.”
“Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated,” according to a press release from the band. “Gray is quick to credit the band’s current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of The Marshall Tucker Band sound. Current members include 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. Acclaimed lead guitarist and vocalist Chris Hicks recently rejoined the band after a two-year absence.”
The band has released 22 studio albums, three DVDs, three live albums and many compilations over its career and still plays more than 130 shows a year. The band’s hits include the songs “Heard It In a Love Song,” “Fire On The Mountain,” “Can’t You See” and “Take The Highway,”
MontBleu is located at 55 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
