Marc Stone's New Orleans Blues King Pens says
Introducing Marc Stone’s New Orleans Kingpins!
Blues at it's best, honoring the spirits of the masters.

Featuring legendary Blues bassist and vocalist Benny Turner. They don't call him the Real Blues Man for nothin'! Benny is the brother and life long musical partner of the late, great Freddie King and played with everyone from Muddy Waters and Memphis Slim to Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana. Both of his last two CDs have topped national internet Blues charts and he has been appearing at festivals in the U.S. and Europe.
Joe Krown is one of New Orleans finest and most respected masters of the keys. A 15 year veteran of Gatemouth Brown's band and long time bandmate of Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Krown's piano skills have been called upon by everyone from Mavis Staples to Allen Toussaint. He has multiple CD releases as an artist and leader, and no one calls up the spirit of New Orleans piano legends like Professor Longhair and Eddie Bo like he can.
Slide guitarist, bandleader and host of the “Soul Serenade” on WWOZ 90.7-fm, Marc Stone has garnered recent nominations from OffBeat Magazine for New Orleans' Best Blues Artist and Best Blues Album for his 2015 Louisiana Red Hot Records release "Poison & Medicine". In addition to touring internationally as an artist, Stone is the leader of the Louisiana Blues Throwdown and has created a reputation for putting together incredible ensembles featuring Blues and Roots legends Walter "Wolfman" Washington, John Mooney, Kirk Joseph and Roger Lewis of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Campbell Brothers, Betty Harris, and Harry "Big Daddy" Hypolite.

The New Orleans Kingpins is Stone's newest all star ensemble, featuring two of his long time musical mentors and associates in Turner and Krown, created for this special residency at B.B. King's!

* Master New Orleans R&B bassist and vocalist Paul Boudreaux will perform in place of Benny Turner on March 8. Benny will begin his residency the following week. Louisiana drumming legend Jefferey “Jellybean” Alexander and young buck from the bayou Terry Scott, Jr. will switch off weekly in the drum chair.
