The show is presented by Murphy USA and will coincide with the El Dorado Shootout, the women's EPSON Tour golf tournament that will be taking place Monday, September 18 to Sunday, September 24 at Mystic Creek Golf Club.
MAD President and CEO Pam Griffin said in a press release,
We are thrilled to bring Foghat to El Dorado for what promises to be an exceptional evening of rock music. With the support of our presenting sponsor, Murphy USA, we aim to create an unforgettable experience for attendees.
Foghat originally formed back in 1971 may have changed members throughout the years but that has not stopped them from touring and recording music. Two of the original members 'lonesome' Dave Peverett and Rod Prince have passed but Roger Earl is still the backbone on drums to this iconic band and the current members have a fantastic rock music past.
Foghat's lead vocalist Scott Holt played with Buddy Guy for over 10 years. Guitarist Bryan Bassett played with Wild Cherry and Molly Hatchet. Their bass player Craig MacGregor who had been with the band since the ’70s, unfortunately died in February of 2018. But Craig had someone in mind to fill in when he was ill. That turned out to be Rodney O'Quinn who used to be with the Pat Travers band.
Doors open at 6 PM with the concert starting at 7 PM with deFrance opening.
