Don’t miss Max Carl’s one-man show at MIM Music Theater. Carl will perform a variety of pieces using a number of instruments, including fifes, drums, pianos, accordions, harmonicas, mandolins, and guitars.
Max Carl was introduced to James Brown back in the 1980s. During their brief couple of days together, Brown shared stories about who he listened to as a child. For Carl, his answer was like the opening of a door into a big, beautiful, endless room of great music.
Carl’s show is a sharing of what he learned from James Brown, as well as what he absorbed from living in the South, and from traveling and playing in every state in America.
During Carl’s career, he has recorded with Dusty Springfield, Bette Midler, Cher, Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd, Elton John, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Rod Stewart, Bad Company, Richard Marx, and many others. His songs have been recorded by Bette Midler, Aaron Neville, Joe Cocker, Huey Lewis, Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Brian White, .38 Special, as well as other major musicians. Carl has been on the road with Jack Mack & The Heart Attack, Donnie Van Zant and .38 Special, and Grand Funk Railroad.
To quote Rusty Russell of Nashville’s Music Row magazine, “He is absolutely, without question, among the top handful of blue-eyed soul singers ever.”
