It's been more than 30 years since Marvin Gaye took Howard "Frankie" Beverly and his band (then called Raw Soul) under his wing. Now billed as Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, the group has continued to enjoy a loyal fan following. Some attribute its continued success on the road to the positive nature and almost "spiritual" appeal of its music, exemplified on tracks such as "Happy Feelings" and "We Are One." Others may speculate that it's because of the importance they place on being a "live band" over being "recording artists." Whatever the reason, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly concerts remain exceptionally popular, and the group's reputation for performing live has become legendary. Don't expect any backup dancers or pyrotechnics for this one — just anticipate good vibes and satisfying soul music.
