Marshall Tucker Band uses tour bus for Sandy aid
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - November 8, 2012 (WPVI) -- The Marshall Tucker Band is using its tour truck to collect donations for victims of superstorm Sandy.
The truck was parking outside of the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in Spartanburg, S.C., on Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The band will be there to thank people. Additional trucks will be stationed in Anderson and Chesnee, S.C.
In a statement, lead singer Doug Gray says the band has received support from people in the northeast for over 40 years and feels their pain "on a personal level."
The Southern rock band is primarily looking to collect coats and blankets. They encourage people to make cash donations to the American Red Cross.
