    Wanted to share Marcus King, the guitar player in the new band I'm a part of. Great guy and talent. Serious soul and chops for someone of his age.

    Serious ??? What a freakin' understatement !!!!!!!! I've been listening to the album on Spotify for the past few days...Marcus is the REAL DEAL. The kid has some serious Derek Trucks influences mixed in his style. I wish big things for your band (OP).

    We've got some exciting things happening with the band that I'll be able to reveal here soon. I'll just say we'll be opening for one of TGP's faves here very soon.

    I shared info on the band's album and videos with a few good friends who dig the Allmans, TTB and Gov't Mule. All 3 asked "WHY AREN'T THESE GUYS OPENING FOR TTB or Mule ?!?!?!?"

    That album is killer stuff.
