Mark Doyle and The Maniacs released the sequel to their last album, "Raw," called "2Raw" in June. It features the rest of the incendiary set recorded at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Syracuse last October. The album is available here or at the archive store.

The band is hitting on all cylinders with Terry Quill back in the band. The two-guitar assault is raising roofs across the Northeast. Having said that, we are pleased to announce, in January 2017 (but pre-released for Christmas), a new live album from the current line-up of the band, "Raw," recorded on a hot, steamy night at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Two very good reasons to buy the new CD are 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. Look for its companion volume, "2Raw," in March 2017. You can purchase "Raw" here.

Happy Holidays and thanks for your continued support!

We would like to wish singer/harp player extraordinaire Pete McMahon all the best as he departs The Maniacs to concentrate on his work in the education field. Pete has been with us for a little over three years, appearing on our third album, "Pushin'" (which won a SAMMY for Best Blues CD) and our fourth album, "Live and Burnin'." We have had an absolute blast playing with him. Returning to the fold in Pete's place is original guitarist/harp player Terry Quill, who was an integral part of our first two SAMMY-winning CDs, "Shake 'Em On Down" and "Comin' Home." We are very excited about welcoming Terry back and picking up where we left off. Lovers of our early two-guitar assault should come check out the new line-up as we gear up for a busy and most blues-wailing summer!

Happy New Year!

2014 was a real Bucket List year for Mark: fulfilling a life-long dream by revamping and performing his beloved Guitar Noir project with the addition of a 5-piece string ensemble, travelling all over the Northeast as Music Director/Guitarist/Pianist with Mary Fahl and premiering at some cool new venues with The Maniacs, playing lots of new material.

2015 promises a new Maniacs CD and lots of other exciting stuff, which will be announced here and at!

Mark Doyle and The Maniacs play a special Sunday show on March 15th at the new Funk ‘N Waffles venue downtown Syracuse, from 6 – 9 PM. Buy tickets here.

Stay warm – see you at a show.

Take a look to your right and you’ll see a plethora of chances to see the band live this summer. And we’re proud to announce that we’ll be performing at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe, PA on Saturday, Sept. 27. This will be a chance for the band to incorporate one of their short acoustic segments, and maybe even get Mark on the venue’s grand piano for a little Otis Spann action with Pete. We shall see. . .
