Influenced by the music of bands such as The Allman Brothers Band and modern blues heroes like Gary Clark Jr, The Marcus Trummer Band plays an original brand of blues and soul-infused rock & roll. Led by riff-driven guitar work, anchored in southern inspired vocals, the 4-piece group has played numerous shows and festivals. Their recent single “Good Times” was released this past fall receiving support from X92.9 and the band is currently working towards releasing more music in 2019.
Performance highlights include showcasing at National Music Centre, supporting the Mocking Shadows at Ironwood Stage & Grill, playing multiple shows with Peter & The Wolves including as part of Heritage Park’s outdoor summer concert series and most recently opening for Matt Blais at the Rec Room Calgary.
The band has taken a residency at The Blues Can where they have hosted a monthly youth jam since September 2018.
The Marcus Trummer Band was honoured to receive first prize in the youth category of the 16th Annual Ship and Anchor Songwriting Competition. Marcus was also recognized by the Calgary International Blues Festival this past Spring as a promising up-and-coming blues artist, receiving the 2019 Randy Ouston Scholarship.
In July the Marcus Trummer Band performed at the King Eddy as part of 2019 Blues Fest.
