Maze Featuring Frankie BeverlyMaze Featuring Frankie Beverly, a soul/quiet storm band established in the early 1970s, formerly known as The Butlers and later Raw Soul, will bring their classic raw soul and funk asesthetics to The Mahaffey Theater. The multi-talented Frankie Beverly - songwriter, record producer, arranger, singer, keyboardist and guitarist - fronts the band that gained exposure almost four decades ago as Marvin Gaye's opening act.
The 1976 release of their first album, Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, yielded a string of hit singles that included “Lady of Magic” and “Workin’ Together.” The late ‘70s and early ‘80s brought best-selling albums, Golden Time of Day, Inspiration and Joy and Pain with chart-topping singles, “Traveling Man,” “Feel that You’re Feeling,” “Joy and Pain,” “Look in Your Eyes” and “Southern Girl.”
Three of the songs on their next album, Live in New Orleans, landed on the United States R&B chart, “Running Away,” “Before I Let Go” and “We Need to Live,” establishing their reputation and popularity in both America and the United Kingdom. The release of Silky Soul in 1989, plus Back to Basics in 1993, attained gold disc status.
Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly continues to tour the U.S. and Europe proving that their music is still unique, relevant and contemporary after 37 years.
