Marcus King Band Welcomes Eric Krasno, Ron Holloway & More In DC [Full Audio]

first_imgThe Marcus King Band and Eric Krasno Band have been on a tear of late, packing out venues across the northeast on their double-bill tour. With two guitar virtuosos (Krasno and King) and a host of other talented musicians in tow, expectations for incredible collaborations have been high at each stop on the 10-show run. As they continue to play to sellout crowds, these expectations have been fulfilled in spades–from collaborative covers of The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead, to mutual sit-ins by the two bands’ namesakes.Watch Eric Krasno & Marcus King Team Up For Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree” In DCLast week, at Washington D.C.’s The Hamilton, The Marcus King Band put on a fiery performance to open the evening, delivering cuts from their self-titled 2016 LP and more with gusto.
