    The sound is distinctive -- passionate, creative, original, soulful, honest and powerful. For nearly thirty years, Frankie Beverly and Maze have created a unique sound and become one of the most influential groups in modern history.

    "We've made it this far because we love and respect ourselves and our fans. But, most importantly, we believe in what we do," remarks Frankie. The journey began when Frankie relocated from his hometown of Philadelphia to San Francisco and formed Maze. In 1976, he released his first album, Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly which yielded a string of hit singles, including "Lady of Magic" and "Workin' Together."

    The 80's brought the release of the best-selling albums, Golden Time of DayInspirationJoy and Pain, containing a list of chart-topping singles including "Travelin' Man," "Feel That You're Feeling," "Joy and Pain," "Look in Your Eyes" and "Southern Girl," to name a few. The group gained worldwide appeal with its legendary sold-out live appearances, and released the deluxe album Live in New Orleans which captured the energy, excitement and electricity of a Maze stage show and offered a fourth side of new studio material which included the hit single "Running Away".

    Recently, Maze released a 20-track double-CD "Anthology" of the most popular and successful songs by Frankie Beverly's smooth soul/R&B group Maze.  It makes an almost self-evident point about the far-too-usual treatment of the deserved in the pop music game. The All Music Guide wrote, "Frankie Beverly and Maze may be the ultimate urban contemporary group, though they're much more soulful and funky than many of their counterparts."

    The group won the prestigious Trumpet Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 and in 2012 the long awaited BET Cadillac Lifetime Achievement Award. They continue to attract sold-out audiences shedding a long lived title of "best kept secret in the industry".

    This is hosted by the Sesquicentennial Celebration Planning Committee of Morehouse College.
