I'm listening to a recent MKB show, and like it. It reminds me a lot of Gov't Mule.

Aloha,

Pretty amazing show...  Marcus is a powerhouse guitarist/vocalist...  a real one of a kind soulful rocker.   My buddy Deshawn aka D'vibes played Keys and brought some funky souljazz sounds to the hard hitting Marus King Band.

Curious to know how many of you have seen this band live yet and if so, what do you think?

Caught them for the second time the other night in Toronto. First time was this past summer at Peach fest. I went into that assuming I wasn't going to love it. I think I assumed it was going to be indulgent noodly shredding and just the latest fad. I was pleasantly blown away not only by Marcus himself (Just the right amount of noodle shred) but his whole band stood out. Not an easy feat at peach given my love for their lineups. 

Intrigued me enough to make it out on a gloomy Monday this week. Just had a feeling I should appreciate this relatively new artist and enjoy seeing them in a small room. A luxury that could fade. Gotta say, once again this "kid" really REALLY impressed me. Holy shit. I thought I sensed growth in rhythmic discipline since I first heard of this band and there were many holy shit wow moments. Only 22 years old and already so so full of sincere soul, angst, rootedness, amazing solos and a gospel filled voice to bring the house down.

And again the whole band was fantastic. Huge props to your buddy Jay that is on the keys "Deshawn d'vibes". He had such great grit and weave. A pleasure to watch him and the trombone player dance around Marcus and kick him in the ass here and there. And the drummer was monstrous in my opinion. Not easy holding down an artist like Marcus that seems destined to take flight. I thought the drummer brought the perfect balance of anchored driven force. 

Is it just me or is this band going places?

Edit to add: RIP BradM. I suspect you were there and would have loved to share those tracks with all
