Marcus King has announce ‘Four of a Kind, Live From Nashville’, a four-show, full production livestream series. The show will air every Monday at 8 p.m. CT from July 13 to Aug. 3 (full schedule below). While the event is not free, all proceeds will go toward MusiCares.
“Putting on “Four of a Kind” is a welcomed challenge for the band and I,” said King via press release. “After a few months off the road and some time to recuperate, we want to get together and make some music. It is all very new to us, performing with no audience and still trying to bring the same energy as a full live show. With some help from some of our closest friends and new ones too, a lovely crew of masked, socially distanced AND socially conscious people, we’re excited to have something we can all feel proud of and share with you all!”
The four shows will each have a different theme and a different group of musicians. The first night (July 13) will see The Marcus King Band perform King’s debut solo record El Dorado in full. The following week (July 20), King will perform as “Marcus King & Friends” alongside Billy Strings and Maggie Rose. Next (July 27), King will perform as The Marcus King Trio, with special guest Brent Hinds of Mastodon. Finally, on Aug. 3, King will present “The Marcus King Band performs The Last Waltz,” featuring an all-star cast of guest musicians including Jennifer Hartswick, Devon Gilfillian, Nicki Bluhm and many more (full lineup below.)
