Exile to perform

at Race Days


The Richmond band Exile will perform at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 3 during Raceland Race Days.

Exile began performing as a band in 1963 while still in high school.  Throughout the 1960s and ’70s, the band enjoyed success switching back and forth from pop and rock ‘n’ roll.

“In 1978 we started working with Mike Chapman when things started to really happen,” band member Marlon Hargis said. “Chapman was a producer who had made a name for himself in England and Australia, who just happened to be looking for an American band.”

Chapman produced Exile’s first major charting album, “Mixed Emotions,” which included the major hit, “Kiss You All Over.” The band toured with Aerosmith, Heart, Boston and Seals & Crofts throughout the late 1970s and early ’80s.

The venue is at 711 Chinn St.
