Formed in 2009, Mark Doyle & The Maniacs is the brainchild of guitarist/producer Mark Doyle. Signed to RCA in the early ‘70s with his first band, Jukin’ Bone (who played their own brand of fiery, Anglophilic blues rock), Mark has gone on to record and tour with artists as varied as Meat Loaf, Bryan Adams, Judy Collins, Leo Sayer, Kim Simmonds and Hall & Oates. Mark has been involved in the making of 65 albums and counting.
Their latest album was released in January 2017. The live album “Raw” included the current line-up of the band and was recorded on a hot, steamy night at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. The CD includes the incendiary version of Jimi Hendrix’s classic “Red House,” and the almost 25-minute “Live Snakes Prelude – History of Rock and Roll,” a truly spellbinding and jaw-dropping journey through the classic music of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Buffalo Springfield, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, to name a few.
Enjoy listening to Mark Doyle and the Maniacs in East Park on the NBT Bank Stage. Their performance will be on Friday, July 27 at 6 p.m.
