Turlock, CA (February 21, 2019) –Timeless essence of country music is coming to the Stanislaus County Fair.
The Stanislaus County Fair welcomes The Marshall Tucker Band on Thursday, July 18, 2019. The band will be performing on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert will be hosted by 104.1 The Hawk and is free with the price of Fair admission.
“The Marshall Tucker Band is known for their unique country rock sound,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair, “but they are sure to bring a little bit of blues, country, and jazz giving our guests an electic sound.”
Today, the band records on its own Ramblin’ Records Label (distributed by Sony/RED Music) and continues to release new and previously unreleased material. Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated. Gray is quick to credit the band’s current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of The Marshall Tucker Band sound. Years of rigorous tour schedules earned the band the respect of critics and countless dedicated fans. With hit singles like “Heard It In a Love Song,” “Fire On The Mountain,” “Can’t You See,” and “Take The Highway,” The Marshall Tucker Band earned seven gold and three platinum albums while they were on the Capricorn Records label. During the 90’s, the band scored four hit singles on Billboard’s country chart and one on Billboard’s gospel chart. Their music has also been featured on the soundtracks of movies such as Smokey and the Bandit, Blow, The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper, Shipwrecked, Crank 2, Don’t Mess with Zohan, Stop Loss, Swing Vote, Taking Chance and many others as well as many television shows.
