Club Madrid hosts Marshall Tucker Band
The Marshall Tucker Band takes the stage at Sunset Stations Club Madrid on Saturday at 7 and 9 p.m. Over several incarnations, the long-running band has performed a variety of music from rock to country to rhythm and blues.

They concede that many of their current fans are probably kids of the fans they had in the 70s and 80s.
