Ceg & Nolafunk Present Marcus King Band - Irving Plaza
November 16, 2018 - New york

THE MARCUS KING BAND Young songwriter Marcus King's debut album, Soul Insight, out now via Evil Teen Records, displays his stunning command of rock, blues, psychedelia, funk, soul and improvisation ? all with a distinctly Southern musical accent. It also brings the 19-year-old a step closer to his musical destiny. "I guess I knew I was born to play guitar when I was seven," King says. "That's when I got my first electric guitar, and while all the other kids were outside playing, I'd be inside on that guitar. When I got in trouble in school, my daddy said I could choose between a spanking and getting my guitar taken away for a week. I took the spanking." Soul Insight is the explosive result of that dedication, magnified by another dozen years and more than a thousand nights playing in clubs ? initially alongside his father, bluesman Marvin King ? since the age of 11, just two years before Marcus formed his own group and stepped into the role of leader.
