Given their almost non-stop tour schedule, The Marcus King Band tends to miss out on the family reunions they cherished growing up. "I remember these gatherings were always the happiest time for me as a kid. A stress-free environment where you are free to love the people you're around," explains King. "That's the aesthetic we want to bring to our festival. Community and happiness. There are no separate agendas being forced on anyone. Just an all-around good time."

A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will benefit two local non-profits near and dear to The Marcus King Band: Cannabis Forward, a Greenville-based organization that raises awareness of the medical benefits of marijuana, and Mental Health America of Greenville County, an organization that positively impacts mental health through advocacy, awareness and service.

Late last year, The Marcus King Band released their sophomore, self-titled album that was produced by Warren Haynes and released on Fantasy Records. This year, the band made their network television debut on CBS This Morning Saturday where they performed "Rita Is Gone" and "Ain't Nothin' Wrong With That." Marcus King is currently on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine as one of "10 Young Players Spreading The Gospel of Kick-Ass Guitar."

On October 27, The Marcus King Band will release the Due North EP via Fantasy Records. The digital-only EP consists of three songs the band recorded during their sophomore album recording sessions: "What's Right," "This Ol'' Cowboy" (Marshall Tucker Band cover), and "Slip Back," and a fourth live recording: an epic 15-minute medley of the band's "Sharry Barry," "Sliced Milk" (Jeff Sipe cover), "25 Or 6 To 4" (Chicago cover), "I'll Stay" (Funkadelic cover), and "Gloomy Sunday" (famously covered by Billie Holiday).

The Washington Post said, "King is poised to be one of music's next great guitarists-a virtuosic talent capable of playing blues, rock, country, R&B, soul and more," and The Philadelphia Inquirer said, "Marcus King is about to become a Southern rock guitar superstar."
