The Marcus King Band
GREENVILLE, SC — Marcus King was brought up on the blues, playing shows as a pre-teen sideman with his father—bluesman Marvin King—before striking out on his own. His highly acclaimed 2016 eponymous release, The Marcus King Band, was produced by Warren Haynes and features the great Derek Trucks on multiple tracks, touching on everything from funky R&B to Southern soul and Americana. King bounces between several instruments, handling electric and acoustic guitar — as well as pedal and lap steel — while driving each track home with his soulful, incendiary voice. Marcus King is the next in the great lineage of southern rock guitarists that begins with Duane Allman and includes his talented mentors, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks.
