The Door Community Auditorium
The Marshall Tucker Band

The Marshall Tucker Band has been a powerful force in the music world since its founding in 1972. Performing everything from Southern rock, country, blues, and all things in-between, the South Carolina natives are powerful musicians. Appearing for one night only on the Door Community Auditorium stage, The Marshall Tucker Band will perform on Sunday, September 7th at 7:00 pm.
The story behind The Marshall Tucker Band begins with founding member Doug Gray. Teaming up with brothers Tommy and Toy Caldwell, Paul T. Riddle, George McCorkle, and Jerry Eubanks, the new band took its moniker from a key ring with the name of a piano tuner.
And so The Marshall Tucker Band was born. In their very first year the band signed with Capricorn Records, the label that guided a number of groups to fame including The Allman Brothers and Wet Willie. The following year The Marshall Tucker Band opened for the Allman Brothers, but within the span of 12 months the group was headlining their own shows.
With a platinum-plus sales debut album as evidence of their immediate success, The Marshall Tucker Band won raves from fans and critics alike. Rolling Stone magazine reviewed The Marshall Tucker Band’s first album calling it “a moving piece of work…it’s tight, smoking music, with sharp, ringing lead guitar work and sure vocals that are grittily felt but never strained…music from the Carolina soil, full of blues and gospel influences. Each cut is a real song…”
In the course of their 36-year career, The Marshall Tucker Band has been awarded seven consecutive gold or platinum albums and multiple hit singles. Performing no less than 150 concerts each year, the band continues to play and record the classic rock and country music that has earned them a faithful following of fans.
All-time favorite Marshall Tucker songs include “Heard It In a Love Song,” “Fire On the Mountain,” and “Take the Highway.” According to Gray, “People have gotten married and buried to Marshall Tucker classics ‘Desert Skies’ and ‘Can’t You See.”’ The band’s most recent CD, “The Next Adventure,” was released last year.
The Marshall Tucker Band’s definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country, and gospel has influenced major country acts like Alabama, The Kentucky Headhunters, and Travis Tritt. And as the recent generation “experiences” the music of this classic band, new fans are discovering The Marshall Tucker Band all over again.
“As we’ve become older our Southern heritage seems to come out even more. But no matter how older we get, we can still rock your socks off,” Gray grins.
Tickets for The Marshall Tucker Band are $40, $35, and $30, and are available at the Door Community Auditorium box office, by phone (920.868.2728), or via the Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 – 3 pm; weekend show days, 11 – 3 pm; and one hour prior to a performance.
