Amazing show.

5.0 star rating Bret Lesario from Chicago, Illinois


Over 2 1/2 hrs of non stop outstanding entertainment!!!! Marcus King is SRV back from the dead. High energy outstanding in multiple categories (Blues, Rock, Soul, Country). Over the last 18 months Marcus' voice has really matured. They are the next best kept secret, hope they stay humble as they are now....If you were gonna go you should have gone. I would consider traveling to see him again if he isn't back in Chi-town soon.

Saw the Marcus King Band Friday night, should be a 5 star review, but in spite of a great showing by a 7 piece band, the sound mix was horrible, way too loud for a theater that only holds 800 people. No clarity with the vocals for the warm up act (Neil Francis) or the headliner. My ears were still ringing Saturday morning.

Went to see MKB ( 26/03/23) at the O2 Ritz Manchester, UK. Aside for some fantastic renditions of the songs from his new album”El Dorado” and from previous records, they played some cracking covers with Rolling Stones, James Brown, Ceelo Green some of the highlights. Unfortunately the sound was disappointing for this venue…too loud with little definition. The nuance was just about lost on MK guitar solos in the mush! Enjoyed it but sort out your sound Marcus!

Feb 9 Vancouver. I must say the I was stoked to be going to see Marcus and his band. I’ve seen all the YouTube and bought three records. However, I was extremely disappointed with the sound engineer. Usually, the sound is best right beside the engineer and his/her sound board. Not so last night. I moved around the venue trying to find a sweet spot but there were none. There was no separation of instruments apparent in the sound. Marcus’ guitar solos were obscured almost completely when the full band was going. His great voice was even muddled. The band put out a long solid show, it’s a shame the sound engineer needed to read his smart phone messages while I stood beside him wondering why he wasn’t trying to improve. It’s was as if the band were all being projected from one monitor. Flat. No single performer stepping out of the mix at all, all night long. Marcus you work too hard to have this kind of incompetence mark your shows. Look forward to another visit with a better sound person.

Sound was way off. Too distorted, too loud, and pitchy. Amazing musician too bad it wasn’t dialed in.

3.0 star rating Danny from San Francisco, California


The good news was the band, the stage, and aesthetics looked amazing. The light show was on par for this great band. After the warm up acts and lights went low, the band came out on stage to the background music of James Brown - the excitement was palpable. Unfortunately the band mix was so noisy, and mushy - there was no separation between guitars, keys, and vocals. It seemed as though the engineer was not interested in creating clarity? The keys were too mid bass heavy, the guitars were overshadowing the vocals. I'm always amazed at these type of situations - it's as if the FOH Engineer never listened to the actual recordings!?? What's more they could not fix the noisy, volume riddled show. Too bad - it was my first time seeing Marcus King, and I ended up leaving early.
