Just Added: The Marcus King Band

The Marcus King Band brings Hometown Throwdown to the Peace Center on Saturday, July 13, at 8 p.m.

 

Guitarist and singer-songwriter Marcus King is a Blue Ridge Mountain boy, born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. At only 22 years of age, this fourth-generation musician has been writing songs and performing on stage for half his lifetime, delivering a southern fried brand of blues and psychedelia inspired by rock n’ roll.

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.

All the members of King’s 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.
