The five-man blues-rock collective The Marcus King Band has announced a special 4-night run of Georgia shows to celebrate New Year's Eve. The holiday run — dubbed Georgia On MKB's Mind — will feature live performances from their chart-topping discography as well as new music from Marcus King's Dan Auerbach-produced, solo, debut project, El Dorado, expected to drop on Jan. 17, 2020.
Georgia On MKB's Mind will kick off on Dec. 28 in Macon (Tickets), then hit Augusta Dec. 29 (Tickets), and closeout in Athens on Dec. 30 (Tickets) and Dec. 31 (Tickets). Tickets for The Marcus King Band's end of the year tour will be available for purchase on Oct. 18 (Tickets).
The band consisting of frontman and lead vocalist Marcus King, brass instrumentalist/background vocalist Justin Johnson, bassist Stephen Campbell, saxophonist Dean Mitchell, and drummer Jack Ryan has not released a single project that hasn't charted.
Their debut musical offering Soul Insight (2015) peaked at the number eight spot on the Billboard Blues Chart. Their next two studio albums, The Marcus King Band (2016) and Carolina Confessions (2018), both reached the number two spot on the Blues Chart as well.
