Marshall Tucker Band

The Birchmere concert hall in Alexandria, VA is a great space to see live music. The main performance room seats 500 and with seating on a first-come, first-seated basis, you can be as close to the band as the length of a dining table.

During the years I lived in town I got to see some major classic rock acts - Ray Davies, Peter Wolf, George Thorogood, and the Marshall Tucker Band - all from the front row. I’ll throw Greg Brown in there too, even though he doesn’t fall into the classic rock genre.

When THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND played their 12/31/78 show at The Warehouse in New Orleans it was simulcast on over 150 radio stations nationwide, making it the most widely heard rock concert of its time. Now, Ramblin' Records is wide releasing the concert for the first time. Following a limited, exclusive release in conjunction with Record Store Day, New Year's In New Orleans: Roll Up '78 And Light Up '79! is now available on all digital platforms and gatefold double LP and 2-CD sets.
