The Wheels of Soul Tour made it’s final stop at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO, this weekend. Featuring Tedeschi Trucks Band, and supported by The Marcus King Band and Drive-By Truckers, sold out the venue on Saturday and came close to capacity on Sunday.
The Marcus King Band didn’t quite steal the show, but he gained 9,000+ fans that attended the Wheels Of Soul Tour at Red Rocks on Sunday night. Marcus King, the twenty-one year old phenome out of Greenville, SC, amazed the nearly sold-out crowd with his stellar guitar playing and righteous Psychedelic Southern Rock Blues. The Marcus King band had Marcus King front and center on guitar and vocals, Jack Ryan on Drums, Stephen Campbell on Bass, Justin Johnson on Trumpet, Trombone, Background Vocals and Tambourine, Dean Mitchell on Saxophones, and Deshawn Alexander on Organ and Keyboards. King mentioned that he’ll be back around Denver sometime, and we’ll be on the lookout. Check The Marcus King Band website, marcuskingband.com, for more information.
