Continuing Gettysburg Bike Week’s tradition of landing top-flight entertainment, GBW has just announced that seminal Southern rock group the Marshall Tucker Band will play this year’s rally.

Formed in the early seventies, the MTB conceived a unique concoction of rock, country, jazz, gospel, and rhythm and blues that propelled them to platinum record sales and inspired and influenced big musical acts like Alabama, the Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad and Travis Tritt. Led by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, the Marshall Tucker Band still remains active, performing over one hundred shows a year, delighting old fans and garnering new ones.

“We’re thrilled to have one of the true Southern rock and country greats for Gettysburg Bike Week 2016,” says event coordinator Kelly Shue. “You hear the term legends tossed around in music, but in this case it really fits: these guys are the real deal.”

Held exclusively at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Gettysburg Bike Week is entering its sixteenth year of operation. This year’s rally will feature other fantastic bands on the S.S. Vape Stage, soon to be announced, as well as tried-and-true motorcycle entertainment staples like bike shows, bike games, bike build offs, and wet T-shirt and bikini contests. Accommodations are convenient and easy, with Gettysburg Bike Week’s official lodging sponsor, the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center, right next door.

And, of course no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg.
