DOVER-FOXCROFT - The Boston-area, guitar-driven band the Bruce Marshall Group treats listeners with a mix of classic and original R&B, Delta blues, Americana and pop-jazz feel when they returns to Center Theatre Sat., Aug. 20, at 7 p.m., thanks to sponsor Mayo Regional Hospital.

Frontman Bruce Marshall, 56, brings 37 years of professional experience to the stage in an 8,000-show career including sharing the stage with over 150 national acts like BB King, Greg Allman, Steven Tyler, James Brown, Beach Boys, Chicago, Bryan Adams, The Doobie Brothers, Moody Blues and Jethro Tull, among others.

Marshall, who has a reputation for his unique use of the Dobro resonator guitar, played 280 shows in 2010, and describes the content of his lyrics as "definitely family-friendly music."

The band's latest CD, Misspent Youth (2010), will have special keepsake value to local fans because the cover bears the image of the Center Theatre faade with the band's name on the marquee. They performed here in 2008 to a near-capacity crowd.

"Maine people are just so open, friendly and so embracing of good music," said Marshall, who took a break from fronting his own band in 1989 to join Toy Caldwell of the Marshall Tucker Band in road performances supporting Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels and the Outlaws. The song "Texas on My Mind" was co-written by Caldwell and Marshall.

Marshall's bands have released six albums, not counting his solo work plus two CDs that are BB King openers that he released with gritty blues artist James Montgomery.

To hear some of the group's songs, go to brucemarshall.com.

Tickets for the Aug. 20 show featuring two 50-minute sets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door and may be purchased at Mr. Paperback, Fox Brook Variety, Forget Me Not Flowers, the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce office or Center Theatre in person or online at centertheatre.org or by calling (207) 564-8943.

The Aug. 20 performance is the second of six live monthly "Saturday Night in Dover-Foxcroft" shows on the third Saturday of each month, July to December, as a fundraiser for the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce and Center Theatre.
