The Marcus King Band, featuring one of the scene’s most talented young guitarists and the band’s namesake, Marcus King is back on the road. MKB released Carolina Confessions in October and have been out on the road supporting their new album.
On Friday night King and his crew traveled up to Higher Ground in Burlington, Vermont for an impressive two+ hour set of blistering music. The 22-song set included older MKB classics like “Rita is Gone” and “Thespian Espionage” as well plenty of tunes off the new album. King also treated Burlington to a couple of covers including Sly and Family Stones’ “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” and the Allman Brothers Band epic “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
