He sings like Warren Haynes. The band keeps up with him, too.I am going to see him live for my first time in a couple weeks, can't frickin' wait!Here is a complete show that smokes the entire way through.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm5xBlm3-IEHere is a part of that show doing some Zeppelin and Sabbathhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XBqp8mW2H0

Hoooo mama Shug, you were not lying. What a smokin' band!! To call Marcus a virtuosic prodigy would be an understatement. His playing is literally out of this world. I don't think he looked at the fretboard once. It's all from the heart.His six piece band deserves some major credit too. They were on par with soul vets like TTB in my mind. The sound was phenomenal and they handle themselves on stage like they've been doing this for decades. There was no opener, so the venue let MKB rip it for almost three hours. I was hoping for that sick cover of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" they've been doing, but was not the least bit disappointed to get some Funkadelic, Beatles and Blind Faith covers instead. These guys definitely won't be playing venues this small for long. They're going to be around for a long time. And you called it, nicest guys ever. The entire band hung out after the show and were all smiles and grace, zero attitude. A+!!

Lots of fiery playing and soulful singing on some really good tunes that don't sound like album leftovers, they easily could have made the cut. The live jam is 14 minutes of shredding including a sweet bit of Chicago's 25 or 6 to 4, nice with the killer horn section!Still waiting for a chance to see these guys headline a show, hope one comes my way soon.
