Tickets to the series, presented by Orange Amps, on sale now at marcuskingband.com.
“Putting on "Four of a Kind" is a welcomed challenge for the band and I,” says Marcus 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” 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 joins The Marcus King Trio for a full blown rock show. The fourth and final episode features a star studded lineup with The Marcus King Band, performing The Last Waltz, alongside guests, Jennnifer Hartswick, Devon Gilfillian, and more!

In addition, through the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project, Spotify will match the proceeds donated to MusiCares up to a collective total of $10 million.
“We chose MusicCares as our charity for the event based on the amount of love and effort they have poured into the music community in times of need.” Marcus explained, adding, “They continue to help those that need it the most and we are thrilled to partner with them.”

More on Marcus King
Marcus King’s recent album El Dorado, is a contemporary exploration of southern R&B, country-soul, classic rock and blues and established the 24 year old phenom as one of the most soulful voices of his generation. With an arresting voice that featured as lead instrument, King’s vocal took centre stage alongside a genre bending blend of subtle acoustics, bright pedal steel, raucous electric guitars and blistering solos. The record landed critical acclaim including a debut performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and features with NPR’s Weekend Edition, Fresh Air and Rolling Stone.
