Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

The four-decade-strong band Max Creek returns for their first show in almost two months to play a full two sets at Port City Music Hall, on Friday April 11th to kick off a northeast mini tour including dates in Portland, ME, Boston, MA, New Haven, CT, and Pawtucket, RI. Formed in 1972, Max Creek have been pioneers of the electric rock jam. For much of their long and endless career, Creek toured extensively, often playing as many as 200 shows a year, and sharing stages with the likes of Widespread Panic, members of The Grateful Dead, and Phish. Though the band hasn’t toured regularly since the early 90s, guitarist, Scott Murawski has spent 2 months on the road with Mike Gordon and tearing it up, including spots on CBS Morning News (National), SirusXm Radio Jam On, and many, many others and the band has maintained a solid fan base throughout New England, staying local and never going out of style. Founding member John Rider has said that he started the band “to give people that might not be accepted anywhere else (kind of like ourselves) a place to be. For anyone of us to stop now would be like cutting off a needed limb- it’s unimaginable.”

Max Creek has a nimble, melodic, and focused approach to improvisation that was unheard of when they first began. Their live shows are sculpted largely on the fly, choosing from a catalog of over 200 songs that includes rockers, ballads, deep jams, and crowd sing-alongs, each finding their perfect spot in the lineup. The band exudes confidence but lacks ego, keeping their shows engaging and full of laughs from both the audience and band themselves. Their incredible musicianship is exemplified by their genre-diverse catalogue, playing a mix of rock, country, reggae, soul, and whatever else they see fit.

Several of the band members have remained unchanged since the mid-70s, with Scott Murawski on guitar, Mark Mercier on keyboards, and John Rider on bass. The back line, however, has been revamped, opening the door for drums and percussion team Bill Carbone and Jamemurrell Stanley, neither of whom were alive when the band was originally founded. In many ways, Max Creek is soaring on the energy of the two new, younger members, enhancing their multi-generational appeal.
