The Mavens / Bio

Their first album, "The Mavens", received national airplay and praise for its authenticity and originality. The Mavens plan to start work on their next recording in 2014.

The current lineup features Rick Malis on rhythm guitar and vocals, Pete Freeman on pedal steel guitar, lap steel and vocals, Mike (Taco) Evans on lead guitar and vocals, Perry Pinto on bass and Scott Helfferich on drums.
