Dave King Trucking Company
After celebrating its 90th birthday last month, the Music Box Theatre, long home to the "highly caffeinated comedy" Triple Espresso, has returned to its original name, the Loring Theater, and is kicking off a revival of the building's history by offering up a mix of cinema, theater, music, and variety performances starting with Saturday's show by the Dave King Trucking Company. King, the innovative jazz/rock percussionist, describes his group, which features reedist Chris Speed and guitarist Erik Fratzke, as sounding as "if the great Nashville bands of the '60s and '70s could improvise and were Coltrane fanatics."
