16-11-2018 12:00:00 16-11-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Ceg & Nolafunk Present Marcus King Band | 7:00 PM 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. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=310448 Irving Plaza Irving Plaza
