A flurry of buzz elicited a hunger for more music, more signature swagger … more of The Mavericks. The Village Voice blatantly stated, “in a word or three, the Mavericks are cool as sh*t,” while No Depression insisted, “…the energy of a locomotive barreling down a track at a hundred miles an hour. The chemistry between these guys is so good...” Fans from the US, Canada, London, Australia, Scotland and places in between turned out for their exhilarating run of live shows throughout the last year of headline dates.

This band has always defied the odds and expectations…a Country band from Miami with a Cuban singer? But it works, because people feel the passion,” explained The Mavericks' guitarist Eddie Perez.

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS: With a Cuban-American lead singer, garage band ferocity, an intense live show and a deep love of both romance and pure country to go with the polyrhythmic beats The Mavericks were raised on, they were unlikely superstars. Yet, their raucous sound broke ground for the Country format with hits like “Here Comes The Rain,” “Crying Shame,” “Dance The Night Away” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down” and scored the group industry awards in prestigious categories like Vocal Group and Album of the Year. An indefinite divergence in 2004 led members Raul Malo, Paul Deakin and Eddie Perez and Jerry Dale McFadden in different directions until the 2013 release of IN TIME (The Valory Music Co.) and subsequent touring. Their first album and major tour in nearly twenty years topped many critics’ Best Of lists, including American Songwriter, The Boston Globe, NPR, Los Angeles Times and New York Magazine. The Mavericks’ music has most recently been featured in the movie GRUDGE MATCH and ABC’s NASHVILLE.
