This Eve could be Special
RED WING —Southern rockers .38 Special will perform at 9 p.m. New Year's Eve at Treasure Island Casino near Red Wing.
The band, which still boasts founding members Donnie Van Zant and Don Barnes, was one of the more successful of the southern rock bands from late '70s and early '80s. Barnes and Van Zant formed the band in 1975 in Jacksonville, Fla. The band followed the musical footprint of the Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, but had a string of hit singles with a formula combining southern rock and pop hooks.
"Hold On Loosely," was the first hit, in 1981, followed by "Caught Up in You," "You Keep Runnin' Away," "If I'd Been the One," "Back Where You Belong," "Teacher Teacher," "Like No Other Night" and "Second Chance."
