Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, originally established themselves in San Francisco combining California soul arrangements with Frankie Beverly’s Philadelphia sound. Maze featuring Frankie Beverly has been one of the top R&B acts since the late 1970s.

The group cemented themselves as mainstays in the R&B genre during the 1980’s with their best-selling albums, “Golden Time of Day”, “Inspiration” and “Joy and Pain” as these contained chart-topping singles including "Travelin' Man", "Feel That You're Feeling", "Look in Your Eyes" and "Southern Girl" among others.

Singer-songwriter Joe brings his own passionate sound to the stage. His career has been filled with seven Grammy Nominations and the iTunes’ Award for Best R&B Album for his 2009 Signature. The St. Louis community welcomes Joe back after one of his most memorable performances occurred as he sang the National Anthem prior to Game 6 of the Cardinals World Series victory on their way to clinching their 11th World Championship.
