Go Rockin’ Into the Night With 38 Special

The wild-eyed Southern boys return to Michigan, packing all their hits for two nights at The Island Showroom. Don’t miss your chance to catch these rock legends, locked and loaded and back where they belong!

Get Caught Up on Your 38 Special History

Since 1976, Jacksonville, Florida’s favorite sons have toured the world with their unique brand of highly explosive Southern arena rock. They’ve recorded over 15 albums and sold 20 million records with hits that have spanned generations.

The band has toured with such acts as Peter Frampton, Foghat and Kiss, and they still play 100+ cities every year.

Wild-Eyed Southern Boys, their fourth and breakthrough record in 1981, put them on the charts with “Hold on Loosely” and “Fantasy Girl.” Their 1982 follow up, Special Forces, gave the band their first top 10 hit with “Caught Up in You.” Since then, they’ve never looked back.

“The magic’s still there,” says guitarist/vocalist and founding member Don Barnes. “It’s an emotional high for us to keep bringing it after all these years.” These days, Barnes is joined by long-time 38 Special alum, keyboardist Bobby Capps, bassist Barry Dunaway, monster drummer Gary Moffatt and guitar virtuoso Jerry Riggs.

Collectively, these musicians have an impressive pedigree, having played with the likes of Pat Travers, Yngwie Malmsteen and Survivor, among others. 

After more than four decades, the band still promises plenty of “muscle and melody” at every performance. Don’t miss these road-hardy pros doing what they love best.

Hits That Strike Like Chain Lighting

38 Special struck musical gold over and over with a catalog of radio hits that few can match. Revisit some of your favorite 38 Special songs before April rolls around:

The band is sure to play all your favorites when they take over the Island stage. As Don Barnes says, “The music keeps our wheels on the road.” For more information, visit the official band homepage at 38special.com.
