There's plenty to do in and around Beverly this week:
1. THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND: Saturday, March 17, 8 p.m Cabot Performing Arts Center, 286 Cabot St., Beverly.
In the early fall of 1973, The Marshall Tucker Band was still a young and hungry group out to prove themselves every time they hit the stage. Their debut album had already spawned numerous hits. The band’s recent release of their Live! From Englishtown album is a time capsule from that period. “We were a bunch of young guys who didn’t know any boundaries” says founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray. As it turned out, the collective talents of The Marshall Tucker Band took them very far indeed. Today the band records on its own label and continues to release new and previously unreleased material. Tickets are $38.50-$58.50; doors open at 7 p.m.
For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.thecabot.org.
