THE MAVERICKS - MASTERS OF COUNTRY LATINO ROCK-N-ROLL, BORN IN THE RICH CULTURAL MIX OF MIAMI THEN TEMPERED IN NASHVILLE'S COUNTRY HOTHOUSE - RODE HIGH IN THE COUNTRY AND ROCK CHARTS OF THE 1990S WITH CULTURE-CROSSING HITS LIKE "WHAT A CRYING SHAME" AND "ALL YOU EVER DO IS BRING ME DOWN." THEN THEY CONQUERED EUROPE WITH THE TITANIC FEELGOOD PARTY CLASSIC "DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY," A 400,000-SELLER IN THE UK.

YET NOTHING LASTS FOREVER, AND IN 2004 THE MAVERICKS WENT ON HIATUS WHILE FRONTMAN RAUL MALO EXPLORED NEW MUSICAL AVENUES. BUT SINCE A REUNION IN 2012, THIS MOST SINGULAR OF BANDS HAS RE-ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND JOYFULLY ENTERTAINING ACTS ON TOURING AND FESTIVAL CIRCUIT ACROSS THE PLANET. ITS A REPUTATION BASED ON THEIR IRREPRESSIBLE MIX OF COUNTRY, TEX-MEX, ROCKABILLY AND LATINO SOUNDS, PLUS A RIOTOUSLY ENTERTAINING, WORLD-RENOWNED LIVE SHOW.

A MAVERICKS GIG IS A GUARANTEED PARTY NIGHT ENCOMPASSING EVERYTHING FROM THE ESSENTIAL "DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY" TO THE INFECTIOUS TEJANO-SKA HYBRID OF "BACK IN YOUR ARMS AGAIN" AND, ON OCCASION, EVEN WILD CARDS LIKE A MAVERICKS TAKE ON THE BEATLES "BACK IN THE USSR."

THE MAVERICKS ARE TRUE AMERICAN ORIGINALS, HEIRS TO THE GREAT SONGWRITING TRADITIONS OF CUBA AND MIAMI, OF NASHVILLE AND SAN ANTONIO AND MEMPHIS. NOW, ON THEIR 30TH ANNIVERSARY AS A BAND, THEY'RE BACK TO REMIND THE WORLD WHY THEY'RE SO GOOD.
