Mark Sultan aka BBQ has a lengthy solo discography dating back to 2003 of all sorts of fun, soulful rock ‘n roll. He’s been playing for far longer in various bands. I can say confidently – pretty much everything MS/BBQ related is EXCITING and Interesting. So, too, is the new stuff that Mark has put up on his Bandcamp. Fuzzy slasher “Steppin Out” is from a couple years back with Mark on all instruments except for Helene Grotans (The Okmoniks) on organ. “Dandelion” is a more recent BBQ set-up Rolling Stones cover.
Mark recently put up an unofficial video for new 45 “Agitated” out on Wild Honey Records. Check it out below! Also on the radar are more singles and a full-length on In The Red in 2015. God bless em.

Mark Sultan advised a would-be concert goer yesterday at 1:34 PM to “bring some friends who aren’t wearing jack johnson shirts, please.” He was referring to the King Khan & BBQ Show gig that was supposed to be held in St. Louis at the Off Broadway. Well, Sultan and my boy Arish “King” Khan never played that gig. They missed an early evening sound check and frankly never made an appearance at the venue at all. They somehow got arrested on their way to St. Louis in Oak Grove, Kentucky (home of really cheap gas). Their booking agent inquired that perhaps they stopped to take a piss. For all we know, a trooper may have noticed them and they are now sex offenders. They are out on bail, but their tour manager, Kristin Klein (above right), apparently is still in jail. She’s been driving the boys around on a suspended license. Tonight’s show has obviously been cancelled. As of 7:51 PM, Kristin is out of jail! The suspected drug found in the vehicle is mushrooms. That’s because Kristin foolishly posted a photo on her flickr of King Khan and Leo Chips with the caption “on mushrooms.”
