Since officially breaking onto the scene a little over two years ago with his debut album Soul Insight, guitarist Marcus King has become highly regarded as the heir apparent to the southern blues and rock throne. With the endorsement and support of veteran axe men like Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes (both artists appear on 2016’s The Marcus King Band, and the latter produced every track), King’s ascension through the ranks of the live music community has been swift. The young guitarist plays with maturity well beyond his years and a keen sense for showmanship that simply can’t be taught. With a well-oiled and polished machine backing him, The Marcus King Band will be making their way to Boulder, CO’s The Fox Theatre for a special Dead & Company pre-party on Thursday, June 8th, with Tom Hamilton’s American Babies rounding out the bill (purchase tix here).The Marcus King Band Reintroduce Themselves With Stellar Self-Titled Second Album [Review/Stream]While Soul Insight gave the masses their first taste of Marcus’ abilities, The Marcus King Band’s self-titled 2016 album (the first with their current lineup) serves as a bold mission statement for the band. King’s natural ability to take deeply personal experiences from his own life and put them out into the universe in song form is on display throughout the LP. Take a listen to tracks like “Devil’s Land” and “Guitar In My Hands” and you will quickly realize the vivid storytelling abilities of this young musician. Backed by Jack Ryan on drums and percussion, Stephen Campbell on bass, Matt Jennings on keys and organ, Dean Mitchell on saxophone, and Justin Johnson on trumpet, trombone and backing vocals, The Marcus King Band is truly a force to be reckoned with, and for many years to come at that.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Tom Hamilton could very easily be described as one of the hardest working musicians in the scene today. With Almost Dead taking on a life of its own since its initial inception, Hamilton’s own American Babies is the project that allows the former Brothers Past lead man to showcase his own uniquely creative songwriting side. The group’s latest album, An Epic Battle Between Light and Dark, sees Hamilton backed by Justin Mazer (guitar), Al Smith (drums), Raina Mullen (acoustic guitar, vocals), and Mark Sosnoskie (bass), and taking on everything from Americana, to prog-rock, to indie-rock (think The War on Drugs). The band sounds tight and cohesive, and the material feels primed to breathe and take on new life onstage.Tickets for the show are $10 in advance, currently on-sale and can be purchased via the venue website.

You can also check out the other Dead & Company pre-shows and post-shows presented by Boulder Theatre and Fox Theatre here, which will also see performances by Easy Star All-Stars (performing Radiodread), White Denim, Circles Around The Sun, Shakedown Street, Boombox, Dopapod, and Hudson (featuring Jack DeJohnette, Larry Grenadier, John Medeski, and John Scofield).[cover photo courtesy of Emily Butler Photography]
Typically, when hiring and building workplace teams, leaders prefer people who look like them, but that doesn’t get us innovation, said Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, HBS, at a recent Faculty of Arts And Sciences Diversity Dialogue. “A strong leader’s job is to bring different people together and coordinate” them to come up with creative solutions to problems, she said.Using the Lessons Learned from the (2010) Chilean Mine Rescue case, Edmondson said, “It’s harder to convince people who are not like you” to work together as a team to develop solutions. Citing the Chilean rescue, she said, “People rose up to take on tasks that needed to be handled. Through cooperation and teamwork, they survived.” She went on to say that “leaders need to be open to new ideas, especially when there is not an established procedure.”“Diversity issues matter less when there is a crisis,” said Russ Porter, FAS administrative dean for science, who attended the dialogue. People are more likely to look beyond difference and seek ideas from all sources when there is a crisis. Edmondson agreed, saying that “collaborative problem solving” is most important, and “all people need to be heard.”The Diversity Dialogue was the final of three this year offered in partnership by the FAS Dean’s Office, FAS Human Resources and the FAS Office of Diversity Relations and Communications.
Fit-again Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has urged the team to put things right ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final. “It was very frustrating for me to be out for three months of the season when things were looking so good,” he added on arsenal.com. “These things happen in football and I am just glad to be back out there now. “Hopefully I can show what I can do, help this team achieve Champions League football again and hopefully have a medal at the end of the year.” Manager Arsene Wenger hopes taking on SkyBet Championship side Wigan this weekend in the cup will give his team a chance to bounce back. “Once you are in the semi-final you want to go through to the final,” he said. “To play in a different competition will help us find confidence back and focus on our next game. “We have to acknowledge that we must go back to basics and come in much stronger in the challenges, much stronger in the way we win the ball back, before we start winning games. “At the moment I feel it is important to focus on the quality of our game before we dream of where we finish (in the league). “We have to come back to much better quality than we produced at Everton.” Ramsey, who came off the bench for his first appearance since Boxing Day after a thigh injury, said the priority was to improve immediately if they were to end their nine-year wait for a trophy and then they could re-focus on their league campaign. “We have to pick ourselves back up now,” he said. “We have still got a lot of points to play for. We are in the semi-final of the FA Cup, so we have got to put things right. “We have to put a strong run-in together now. We have five games left and we will aim to win them all to give us the best opportunity to finish fourth or higher. “I think Everton still have a few difficult games but, then again, every game is difficult in this league. “So many teams can upset each other so we will have to be aware of that, concentrate on ourselves and just play for the remaining 15 points.” The only positive note from the defeat on Merseyside was the long-awaited return of Ramsey, who was a key player for Arsenal before his injury. He is now looking to make up for lost time by securing some silverware and the club’s 17th successive season in the Champions League. The Gunners were outplayed by Everton in their 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park, putting their Champions League place under threat with the Toffees just one point behind with a match in hand. Everton will overtake them in fourth with a win at Sunderland this weekend, but Arsenal’s attention will be on the cup this week. Press Association
