NASHVILLE, Tn. — Twenty-four year old genre-bending singer-songwriter Marcus King today announced Four of a Kind, Live From Nashville, a four night full production livestream series benefitting MusiCares and airing every Monday at 9 p.m. ET from July 13th through August 3rd. Filmed in Nashville, each show has a unique performance concept and will feature guests including Brent Hinds (of Mastodon,) Billy Strings, Jennifer Hartswick, Devon Gilfillian, and more! Tickets on sale now at marcuskingband.com.
“Putting on ‘Four of a Kind’ is a welcomed challenge for the band and I,” said King. “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 first episode will feature The Marcus King Band performing King’s critically acclaimed record El Dorado—produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and released this past January—in full. Episode two will see King joined by friends Billy Strings and Maggie Rose for an all-night jam. Episode three features Brent Hinds from Mastodon, who will join The Marcus King Trio for a full blown rock show. The fourth and final episode will feature a star studded lineup with The Marcus King Band performing The Last Waltz alongside guests Jennnifer Hartswick, Devon Gilfillian, Early James, Elizabeth Cook, Ida Mae, Maggie Rose, Nicki Bluhm and Sierra Ferrell.
