Event Info via David Shaw's Big River Getdown's Facebook Page
- As someone born and raised in Hamilton, the recent revitalization of the city has been something inspiring to witness. Getting the opportunity the last few summers to perform with my band The Revivalists at the Rivers Edge Amphitheater has always been a highlight of my year and a great opportunity to reconnect with family and old friends. The Big River Get Down will serve as a way to help increase the profile of Hamilton, while bringing something unique directly to the people of the city. Over the coming years we hope to sustain and grow this event along with the continuing renaissance of Hamilton to bolster the economy and provide yet another pillar of confidence and pride for the community.
- This year, all proceeds will benefit Hamilton's 4th of July celebration. Half of the proceeds will be donated towards the fireworks and the other half will be donated to the 4th of July concert at RiversEdge.

The Marcus King Band Releases New Single "Ain't Nothin' Wrong With That" August 22, 2016 10:47
The Marcus King Band is set to release it's brand new, self-titled album on Friday, October 7. The group’s sophomore LP features the single “Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With That” which the band released over the weekend for your listening pleasure. Produced by legendary guitarist Warren Haynes, the album also features the Gov't Mule guitarist on the song "Virginia," while fellow legendary guitarist Derek Trucks plays on the song "Self-Hatred." The album will serve as the follow up to the band's 2015 release Soul Insight and was recorded at Carriage House Studios in Stamford, Connecticut.
At only 20 years of age, Marcus King’s dazzling musical ability is evident throughout The Marcus King Band, the young phenom’s 2nd full-length LP and first for Fantasy Records. 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 all amidst a group of masterful musicians who, together, are quickly becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts.
“Marcus is the first player I’ve heard since Derek Trucks to play with the maturity of a musician well beyond his age,” said Haynes. “He’s very much influenced by the blues, but also by jazz, rock, soul music, and any timeless genre of music. You can hear the influences, but it all comes through him in his own unique way. He has one of those voices that instantly draws you in, and his guitar playing is an extension of his voice and vice versa.”
Marcus King has taken the jam/festival by storm in recent years, clearly garnering the attention of many of the greats. While King handles lead guitar and vocals, he is supported by Jack Ryan on drums, Stephen Campbell on bass, Matt Jennings on keyboards, Dean Mitchell on saxophone, and Justin Johnson on trumpet, trombone and backing vocals.
King’s talents and trajectory have already led his band across the country, and he’s opening shows for the Foo Fighters, Johnny Winter and, of course, Gov’t Mule and its leader, Warren Haynes. King emerged from his native Greenville, South Carolina, and its sister city Asheville, North Carolina, where Haynes was born. King hit Haynes’ radar thanks to the reputation the young artist has earned with his incendiary live performances.
In December 2014, King and his band were invited to perform as part of Haynes’ annual Christmas Jam benefit, which occurs in Asheville’s U.S. Cellular Center Arena, the prestigious club the Orange Peel and other rooms around the musician-and-artist-heavy mountain city. A few months before that, the Marcus King Band had recorded Soul Insight at the Compound Studio, just south of Los Angeles in Signal Hill, California.
