Southern Rock Makes LI Pit Stop

Southern rock ‘n’ rollers, the Marshall Tucker Band are coming to the NYCB Theatre at Westbury along with Long Island’s Stanton Anderson Band on Sunday, September 2 at 8 p.m.

The Marshall Tucker Band is an American southern rock band from Spartanburg, South Carolina. The band’s blend of rock, R&B, jazz, country and gospel helped establish the Southern rock genre in the early ‘70s. Though the band has been subject to an ever-changing line-up, long-time lead vocalist Doug Gray is quick to credit the band’s current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of the Marshall Tucker Band sound. Still led today by founding member Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated.

Once called Long Island’s greatest live act ever, the Stanton Anderson Band is back, claiming their reign on the rock n’ roll throne. SAB helped created the Long Island music scene, paving the way for bands like Twisted Sister and Zebra. Their powerful live shows and popularity took Long Island by the ears and created a following of life-long fans. Mark Fowler, a vocalist and harmonica player, moved up to Long Island and hooked up with bassist Larry Luby and guitarist Rick Silecchio. By 1972, the band’s line-up was in place and they began to storm Long Island with their soulful sounds and blues-inspired rhythms.

There will be a pre-show Party-On-the-Deck and outdoor festival beginning at 5 p.m. with live music featuring Joe Rock & The All Stars, custom cars, motorcycles, vendors, food and much more!
