meet the martians

The King of Mars formed in the spring of 2015 and has since evolved into a larger band with piano, synths, and a horn section. Their sound shakes the foundation of traditional rock music by encompassing Jazz, Funk, and Soul musicality alongside insightful lyricism.

The King of Mars has been performing at many popular Chicago venues such as The Subterranean, The House of Blues, Beat Kitchen, Martyrs, and Metro. They recently released their EP, “Cookie Cutter Dreams” and successfully completed their first tour in which they performed at venues along the East Coast and through out the South and Midwest.
