Marcus King Band, featuring the 21-year old guitar prodigy Marcus King, hit up SPACE located in Evanston, just outside Chicago proper. MKB treated Chi-town to nearly two hours of their brand of blues and soul.
In addition to soon to be classic originals like “Thespian Espionage,” Marcus King and his band did searing renditions of the Grateful Dead’s “Fire on the Mountain,” Allman Brothers Band “Dreams,” The Temptations’ “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” with a nod to Jimi Hendrix’s “Third Stone From The Sun” and The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby.” King’s crisp guitar licks and sharp tone breathe new life into these classic tunes.
