Drinking with friends is always better with fantastic live music in the background. Let The Max be the soundtrack to your Friday night out, as this cover band is taking the stage tonight at Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub, located at 5100 Belt Line Road in Addison.
The Max was formed in 1980, and is one of the first local bands to cover songs from the 60s, 70s, 80, 90s and today. According to their website, “As a leader in the industry The Max has pursued perfection for over 30 years and will continue to reflect this in their innovative approach to professional musical entertainment.”
Four men make up The Max – Mark Makari, Scott Wheeler, Mario Ximenez and Grey Bieller. Makari is the lead singer, who is able to vocally perform any musical style (a helpful talent for a band who plays at clubs, corporate events, private functions and weddings). Before coming to The Max, he co-formed Eye 2 Eye with Wheeler, an award-winning band that played in San Antonio. He also handles the management and booking, and is the musical director for the band.
Wheeler has been playing guitar since he was 8-years-old. He is an accomplished writer and producer, and operates his own digital studio in San Antonio. He has also performed throughout Texas, opening for major recording artists.
Ximenez plays an electronic drum set, allowing him to emulate any song for The Max. He has toured nationally and internationally with La Sombra, Shawn Sahm and The Tex Mex Experience. He has also recording and performed with Grammy award-winning artists.
Bieller is a talented bass player, who brings the excitement and enthusiasm to the band. He was also a member of Eye 2 Eye with Makara and Wheeler.
While listening to The Max at Sherlock’s, enjoy a drink at this British-themed pub. Friday nights are part of the Double Down Weekends special, where you can get Dos XX an a shot of Don Julio for $8 from 7pm to 11pm.
Listening to live versions of the best songs from the last 60 years, while sipping on beer and snacking on fish and chips? Sounds like the perfect end to a long week!
