WFUV Live: The Marcus King Band

In the liner notes of The Marcus King Band's debut album, Soul Insight, from last year, no less than Warren Haynes is quoted as saying, "There's this young guitar player/singer from South Carolina named Marcus King, who is starting to stir up quite a bit of dust, and I think the potential for his music is endless."

In fact, Haynes was so knocked out by the young artist that he took him and his band under his wing and produced their new record which is simply called, The Marcus King Band. Fans of Haynes and his work in The Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule will find plenty to like in these guys, who are well rooted in Southern rock but incorporate jazz, psychedelia and whatever serves the song.
