This livestream comes as the Marcinek heads into the studio to record its highly-anticipated fourth album, JMB4, with Glaspie, Hall, and Martin as his core band. The album will mark the follow-up to 2018’s JM3, on which Joe Marcinek performed with a trio featuring Wil Blades and Terence Higgins. In addition to the core four musicians in the band, this record will see special guest appearances from Eric Gales, Roosevelt Collier, Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce), and Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident). The ensemble will record at Full Sail University alongside Charley Webb.
