The best Music in the Mountains season ever ends with another headline concert as Marshall Tucker Band takes the stage under the stars at Big Bear Discovery Center’s outdoor amphitheater Saturday, September 3.
There’s an active campaign for Marshall Tucker Band to be elected into the Rock `N Roll Hall of Fame and it’s easy to see why. The band’s music is iconic with songs like “Ramblin,” “Fire on the Mountain,” “Take the Highway,” “Heard it in a Love Song” and the classic “Can’t You See,” really the music of a generation.
The group established the Southern genre with its mix of blues, country, rock and even Gospel. Marshall Tucker Band has had a lot of lineups through 45 years but founding member and lead singer Doug Gray remains, joined by a talented lineup. Even as bands change the music remains timeless, never more true than with Marshall Tucker Band. The group has seven gold and three platinum albums and in the 1990’s scored four hit singles on Billboard’s country chart and even on the Gospel chart.
The band has gigs at The Coach House prior to Music in the Mountains and shows in Agoura Hills and Hermosa Beach as part of its 130 live dates a year. After that the Hall of Fame candidates are off to Las Vegas for a show at Sunset Station and then to the East Coast for the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City and B.B. King’s Blues Club in New York.
Guests enjoy new sound and lighting. systems brought in by Stone Entertainment Group, producers of the series that benefits Southern California Mountains Foundation.
