For an upstart vocal group to be personally picked by the late great Marvin Gaye to join his tour as an opening act says a lot about the group's potential for stardom. That was forty years ago. Now Maze And Frankie Beverly are still taking their act on the road but this time, as penultimate headliners –stars of their own show with legions of dedicated fans in tow. Maze And Frankie Beverly hit the scene in 1977 and unleashed a string of hits over the years which include “Happy Feelings,” “Lady of Magic,” “While I’m Alone” and “Workin’ Together.” And the soul classics continued with “Golden Time Of Day,” “Southern Girl,” “Joy and Pain,” “We Are One,” “Running Away,” “Back In Stride,” “Can’t Get Over You,” “Silky Soul” and “The Morning After.”
Maze And Frankie Beverly could've rested on their laurels of hit records, but they chose to pay it forward to their fans by breathing life into the hits on the live concert stage. “They know what they are going to get with us,” says Beverly of the group’s audiences. “They trust us as musicians. You’ve got to be a good live act. You’ve got to know how to entertain. It goes beyond having hit records. You have to know how to present the music on stage.”
