The Marcus King Band
The young and fresh The Marcus King Band is one of those remarkable outfits that years from now you'll be proudly reminding your friends that you turned them on to this spectacular band. Collaborator Warren Haynes says of Marcus King, “He's very much influenced by the blues, but also by jazz, rock, soul music, and any timeless genres of music.” This is not your traditional blues band. This six piece's sound is an amalgam of true southern blues rock with a heaping helping of Stax/Volt style Memphis horns, a touch of weeping steel-pedal guitar and even a pinch of funky flute. It all comes together for a presentation that makes you wonder why you haven't had a taste of this delicious brew before now. The Marcus King Band is nothing but legit, and you're gonna remember where you first saw this outstanding group of artists.
