Anthony Marquez – best known for his portrayal of Kung Lao in Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3 – has been performing all around Chicago with his band, collectively called Kung Lao and the Scorpions! The band is on Spotify and also has a CD for sale at various conventions. MK Online was on the scene at The Elbo Room this past Saturday and has the pictures from the evening, which included not only a concert but also an Ultimate MK3 tournament (SNES port).

The band performed their own original songs, like "Believe," "Try This Again," and "Life Without You," as well as covered some more popular music such as "Uptown Funk" (by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars), "Rock & Roll All Nite" (by Kiss), and "Pour Some Sugar on Me" (by Def Leppard). We managed to catch the entire concert here:

In addition, we did an impromptu interview with Anthony, who was joined by his friend Phillip Ahn — best known for his appearance in Mortal Kombat II as the shapeshifting sorcerer, Shang Tsung! In this mortal konversation, we find out that Anthony and Phillip were friends back in high school. Anthony also lets us know that he's working on a book about his Mortal Kombat experience and he expects it to be out in early 2019! Check that interview out here:

A huge thanks to Anthony and Phillip for their time! If you're in the area, be sure to come down to one of his concerts. Don't forget to leave a comment on the forums. Also, our next Twitch livestream will be this Saturday, November 10, at 1 PM Eastern/12PM Central with our guest , Drew Adkins, author of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3+!
