On Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Maxwell brings his show 50 Intimate Nights Live to the Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center in beautiful downtown Orlando. His brand of neo-soul and the way he delivers it never gets old. For grown folks only, Maxwell pays homage to old school R & B male singers and shares a higher level of sexy with his audiences. Special guest Marsha Ambrosius’ neo-soul, jazz, and r & b stylings will undoubtedly warm the audience and set the tone for the sizzling headliner. While she has blazed her own impressive trail as a solo artist, some fans will remember Marsha Ambrosius from her stint as one half of Floetry.

There’s still time to get your Doobie Brothers tickets and go back in time on October 19th at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center.

Get ready to hear their most memorable tunes including their number one singles “Black Water” (1974) and “What a Fool Believes” (1979) and “Listen To The Music,” and Takin’ it to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “You Belong to Me,”.
