Pop-Soul Singer MAX to Headline La Roche College Spring Concert

PITTSBURGH, March 1, 2018 – New York City-born pop-soul singer MAX will perform at La Roche University’s spring concert on Friday, April 20.

He has been featured in songs with artists such as Hoodie Allen and Rain Man with his current hit single, “Lights Down Low,” featuring gnash. Currently MAX is celebrating the success of “Lights Down Low” and his 2016 album “Hell’s Kitchen Angel.”

MAX will perform at Kerr Fitness & Sports Center in McCandless Township. Presented by the La Roche University Concert Council, the event also will feature Pittsburgh bands A Summer High and Vertigo. Tickets are available online and cost $15 for La Roche students, $25 for the public and $40 for VIP. The cost of VIP includes a show ticket with VIP seating, a concert T-Shirt, an exclusive 11x17 poster and a VIP lanyard.
