Coming to the Uptown in August

The Uptown Theatre welcomes the Marshall Tucker Band and Moonalice on the eve of Downtown Napa’s Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival on Aug. 23.

Following a day of craft beers and lively entertainment in downtown Napa, the Uptown will host an evening of comedy and rock with the Dan Band performing their unique blend of audience participation and parody covers that have made them popular TV and movie guest performers as well.

The Marshall Tucker Band, still rocking after 40 years, comes to the Uptown Theatre Napa on Aug. 22 at 8 p.m.Doors open at 7 p.m.Tickets are $25, $40 and $50.

In the early fall of 1973, the Marshall Tucker Band was a young and hungry group. “We were a bunch of young guys who didn’t know any boundaries,” said founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray.

More than four decades later, the new vinyl Greatest Hits release takes us back to the early years of the Marshall Tucker Band.

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. Their music was featured in movies such as “Smokey and the Bandit,”” Blow,” “The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper” and “Shipwrecked.”

“The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock 'n' roll,” Gray said. “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country, jazz, blues, rock 'n' roll and all things in-between.

“As we've become older, our Southern heritage seems to come out even more. But no matter how old we get, we can still rock your socks off.”

Gray also noted that people have gotten “married and buried” to classic MTB songs like “Desert Skies” and “Can't You See.” After 40 years, the Marshall Tucker Band continues to be played on classic rock and country radio, and they have never stopped touring.

The Dan Band performs Aug. 23 at Uptown Theatre Napa at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30.

Dan Finnerty caught America’s attention as the foul-mouthed wedding singer in the film “Old School,” performing his now-infamous rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” He made subsequent appearances in “Starsky and Hutch” where he performed “Feel Like Makin’ Love” at a bat mitzvah, and in “The Hangover.”
