Alan Gorrie knows that 40 years after its first album, "Show Your Hand," was released, the Average White Band is mainly in the nostalgia business. That hasn’t stopped the band from playing each show as if it’s new for the audience.

Fans will hear all the hits — including "Pick Up the Pieces," "Cut the Cake" and "School Boy Crush" — when the band plays in Park City on Thursday and Friday, said Gorrie, the band’s founding bassist and lead singer, who also promised "new arrangements of old songs that people dig."
