Marcus King ‘Four Of A Kind’ Livestream Series Raises $80K For MusiCares
Marcus King announced that his livestream series, Four Of A Kind, and accompanying auction raised $80,000 for MusiCares. King teamed up with Spotify’s COVID-19 Music Relief project for the charity event and the streaming company matched proceeds donated through the fund.
Four Of A Kind took place between July 13 and August 3. The livestream series included guest appearances from Billy Strings, Brent Hinds of Mastodon, Jennifer Hartswick, Early James, Devon Gilfillian and more.
“The idea to do four shows came about because I wanted to give people some variety,” King told Pollstar Magazine. “If we’re playing a three- or four-night run, we don’t like to repeat material or recycle anything. We are supporting MusicCares and helping musicians in these trying times because they’ve been a success and musicians are getting hit pretty hard not getting to do what we love.”
