ABOUT THE HEADLINERS:
Dr. John A six-time Grammy Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Dr. John is the embodiment of New Orleans’ musical legacy. His colorful career began in the 1950’s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the city. He then launched his solo career, developing the persona of Dr. John The Nite Tripper with Gris-Gris and Sun, Moon and Herbs which included Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, followed by In The Right Place with hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.” After Hurricane Katrina, City That Care Forgot won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Locked Down (2012) with Dan Auerbach won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. In 2014, he released Ske-DatDe-Dat:

The Spirit of Satch and received the Louie Award from Louis Armstrong House Museum in 2015. In 2016, he received the Jazz Foundation of America's Hank Jones Award. He also released “The Bare Necessities” and The Musical Mojo of Dr. John: A Celebration of Mac & His Music featuring Bruce Springsteen, Mavis Staples and more. After 65 years, Dr. John is still creating music with a passion.

Marcus King Band At only 21 years of age, Marcus King’s dazzling musical ability is evident throughout the young phenom’s 2nd full-length LP. Operating within the fiery brand of American roots music that King calls "soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock," the album highlights King’s gorgeous, rough-hewn vocals, soaring guitar work and heartfelt songwriting amidst a group of masterful musicians who are quickly becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts.

Raised in Greenville, SC, King was brought up on the blues, playing shows as a pre-teen sideman with his father, bluesman Marvin King (who himself was the son of a regionally-known guitarist), before striking out on his own. Going beyond the sonic textures of his acclaimed 2015 debut album (Soul Insight), The Marcus King Band broadens their sound, touching upon everything from funky R&B to Southern soul and Americana in the process. The band gets in on the action too, stacking the songs with blasts of swampy brass, a lock-step rhythm section and swirling organ. Ever the multi-tasker, King bounces between several instruments, handling electric and acoustic guitar (as well as pedal and lap steel) while driving each track home with his soulful, incendiary voice.

South Carolina Craft Beer & Music is presented in part by The Sound of Charleston, 105.5 The Bridge.
