The Marcus King Band

Facebook event Share Tweet

Soul influenced psychedelic Southern rock!

MARCUS KING, what a name! The fame will surely follow, certainly live, in the wake of debut 'Soul Insight' and then there’s another 'new self-titled LP out now on Fantasy Records.'

Right from the start, this very healthy young American from South Carolina delivers the best blues rock on the market. Think: The Allman Brothers (that he has already smoothly covered) with injections of funky R&B or Americana, or in his own words: 'soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock.'

'Young master King's voice and guitar are the focal point, plus the likes of extra energetic horns and organ sounds, and all that stands for roots, growth and elation.

Or, maybe another reference? This Marcus has already played with John Medeski, but would also like to play together with the rest of Medeski Martin & Woods sometime.

The bravure! The blues! The best!

Heerlijke sound. Een onwaarschijnlijk talent met een schitterende band die boeide vanaf de eerste noot...

schitterend concert van een aanstormend talent. scherpe gitaarsolo's met stevige ondersteuning van bas en blazers.

Great set, great sound. L'AB Club, salle parfaite pour ce genre musical. We want more...
Du bon Southern-Rock avec une touche jazzy. Excellent trompettiste ! Je regrette le manque de variation et de respiration. Après une heure on a l'impression que c'est toujours la même chose.
brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! absolutely f******g brilliant! 2 hours of musical bliss, amazing guitarist. Hope they will release a live album soon.
Fantastic gig, great band, amazing voice and guitar playing, songs are getting better and the jamming is just red hot and nasty in all the right places. Big thumbs up!
Voor mij is M arcus Kingabsoluut één van dé revelaties van de laatste jaren: amper 21 jaar oud en toch al zo'n songschrijvers-"métier", zoveel gitaarvirtuositeit, zo'n gepokte en gemazelde bluesy vocals, zo'n geoliede band die vlotjes en moeiteloos overschakelt van southern rock naar stevige blues tot zelfs wervelende jazz-jams (met de schitterende trompettist/trombonist in een zeer prominente rol...). Producer Warren Haynes (met zijn eigenste Gov't Mule trouwens binnenkort in De Roma te bewonderen) weet zijn pappenheimers duidelijk uit te kiezen. Topconcert met andere woorden, waarvan ik dik 2 uur zonder meer genoten heb...!!!
Sacrés musiciens; du groove dans un mélange rock blues soul et jazz: un régal!
Great band!
Concert absolument fabuleux avec des musiciens exceptionnels.Cette salle de l'AB club rend en plus un excellent. MKB, à suivre et à revoir sans hésiter!
Super Goed
Marcus King est impressionnant. Ca envoie. Par moment, il est un peu dans le trip musicos qui se fait plaisir (enchaînements qui n'en finissent pas) mais globalement, très chouette énergie ! Et chouette trompetteux.
