Watch Marcus King Band’s Superb Phish And Gov’t Mule NYC After-Show On 12/30/2016

first_imgOn December 30th of last year, on the eve of New Year’s Eve, Marcus King travelled to New York City’s Cutting Room, playing an energetic after-show following Phish’s performance at Madison Square Garden and Gov’t Mule’s performance at the Beacon Theatre. The Marcus King Band, which in addition to King is comprised of Jack Ryan (drums), Stephen Campbell (bass), Matt Jennings (keys, organ), Dean Mitchell (sax), and Justin Johnson (trumpet, trombone, backing vocals), put on an excellent show for attendees who made it out, treating the crowd to their patented and increasingly popular soulful, stylized, and psychedelic southern rock.The Marcus King Band Reintroduce Themselves With Stellar Self-Titled Second Album [Review/Stream]With King’s powerful voice and soaring guitar riffs at the center of the performance, the group played through two hours of their material, primarily focusing on music off The Marcus King Band, the group’s second album that came out late last year and catalyzed the group’s steadily upward trajectory. The audience—which included Warren Haynes (who worked with King on their latest album and stopped by following his own New York performance that night with Gov’t Mule), Chris Robinson of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and fourteen-year-old young guitar prodigy Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, who were seen amongst the crowd, checking out the lauded band endorsed by Soulive and Lettuce’s infamous guitarist Eric Krasno—eagerly and unsurprisingly devoured the music.The Road To Rooster Walk: Marcus King Discusses SongwritingLuckily for those of us who weren’t able to catch the show, you can watch the Marcus King Band’s full performance below, courtesy of Youtube user LondonSoulsHistorian.
