Charlie Daniels Band at Cache Creek Casino

One of the best Rock concerts I ever saw was a southern Rock concert with the Charlie Daniels Band, Lynrd Skynrd, and the Marshall Tucker Band in Sacramento circa 1977. Usually as a musician and then talent agent, I never got overexcited like most "wild & crazy fans can get. But I lost my voice at this one.
I had never seen Charlie Daniels nor Lynrd Skynrd before, although I had seen Marshall Tucker. These three groups rocked the Memorial Auditorium like I had never seen it rocked before.

While from the south myself, I always loved a good fiddle, but Charlie got me real hooked that show. With a recent television commercial he starred in, I only remember Charlies' Fiddle, I do not remember what they were selling.

But I saw he still had the "Fire" in his eye and he will no doubt "smoke" and rock the Cash Creek crowd this Saturday. You do not want to miss "The Charlie Daniels Band."

Charlie Daniels Band

Saturday, June 18 - Club 88
One song, instantly recognized by virtually everyone who hears it, defines The Charlie Daniels Band. In the summer of 1979 Daniels recorded “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which went on to become a Platinum single, topped both the country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, and became an international phenomenon, earning the artist three Country Music Association trophies. The song was also picked up on the Urban Cowboy movie soundtrack and propelled Daniel's “Million Mile Reflections” album to Triple Platinum sales levels.

For decades, Daniels has steadfastly refused to label his songs in traditional terms, instead calling them merely “CDB music.” Because of this refusal to be categorized into a traditional musical format, he sees himself as somewhat of a rebel. In addition to his other awards, the Charlie Daniels Band has twice been voted the Academy of Country Music's Touring Band of the Year, and in 2008 he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, a highpoint in the career of any southern musician.
