New Year’s Eve with Max Creek
Join us this New Year’s Eve at The Colonial Theatre for a very special performance by one of Berkshire County’s Favorite Bands, Max Creek!
Max Creek has reached its fifth decade of playing music in the Northeast. Creek’s style lacks pretense; there is no genre title that can define them. From the beginning, they mixed rock, country, reggae, soul, jazz and calypso and combined it with their own great songwriting.
The band is joyous, and their stage is full of smiles and laughter, both during and between songs. Max Creek is engaging, sculpting lengthy shows on-the-fly from their 200+ song catalog with rockers, ballads, deep jams and crowd sing-alongs. Furthermore, Creek is, most definitely, a family. 40-odd years in, the audience is a multi-generational stew—it’s not uncommon to witness old-school “Creek Freeks” getting down with their teenage (or older!) kids.
Creek itself is multigenerational. Guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist Mark Mercier and bassist John Rider have remained intact since the mid-’70s, and the current drums and percussion team consist of Bill Carbone and Jamemurrell Stanley, who weren’t even born when Max Creek started.
