THE MARCUS KING BAND, Live At Rescue Rooms

  • Wednesday 19th June 2019
  • Supported by: TBC

DEAR MKB EUROPE FAM,

We’re terribly sorry to deliver some bad news: our summer European tour is now postponed & we’ll no longer be at festivals on your side of the pond as planned. This year has been a whirlwind of excitement, but also very hectic. We need to take time to rest up, focus on self-care, and get prepared for big news to come. This was an extremely difficult decision, one we don’t take lightly. It breaks our hearts to disappoint yall like this because we’re so grateful to be able travel & perform for our extended MKB Family. We pride ourselves on fully delivering every show and need to recharge to give it our all. Your tickets will be valid for the rescheduled shows, which we’ll announce ASAP.

It’ll be a while longer before we can hang together, BUT WE PROMISE to make it up to you when we reunite!!

Thank you for understanding & Lots of Love, THE MARCUS KING BAND

2019 marcus king band

Songwriter. Guitarist. Singer. Bandleader. At only 22 years of age, Marcus King has been writing songs and performing onstage for half his lifetime, delivering a southern fried brand of blues and psychedelia inspired by rock n’ roll. All five members of the band—drummer Jack Ryan, bass player Stephen Campbell, trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson, sax player Dean Mitchell and keyboard player DeShawn “D-Vibes” Alexander—create a blistering, yet soulful unit that has honed their synergy through endless touring. King is a Blue Ridge Mountain boy, born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. A fourth-generation musician, he traces his lineage back to his fiddle-playing great grandfather, while his grandfather was a fiddler and guitarist. His dad is Marvin King, is a singer/guitarist who has toured nationally since the ‘70’s with various artists as well as his own group, Marvin King and Blue Revival. Since he was a teenager, he’s been trading licks with famous fans and mentors Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks whenever their paths have crossed. Marcus King doesn’t strive for authenticity, he never had to—it’s busting out of his DNA in every note he plays and every word he sings. This focused, firmly rooted artist isn’t just perpetuating the proud legacy of American rock and soul music; with the musically enthralling, deeply personal new album, Carolina Confessions, he and his great band are adding their own eloquent chapter to that rich narrative.
