The Mavericks to Play Capitol Center For The Arts, 5/10
The Mavericks, the Grammy and Country Music Association Award-winning quintet showcasing Raul Malo and liberally mixing country, pop, rock, Latin and lounge music, will play the Capitol Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 10..They will be touring in support of "In Time" (Valory), their ninth studio album and first in ten years. Time has a way of melting when you're busy living life - and two decades have passed since their polyrhythmic brand of post-modern country has given the world "All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down," "Here Comes The Rain," and "Dance The Night Away." Known for their poly-rhythmic brand of post-modern country, the Mavericks are back to showcase the group's infectious energy and robust sound which has come to categorize their live performances.
Led by the incredible voice of Raul Malo, a Miami native gone Nashville, the Mavericks also include Paul Deakins on drums, Jerry Dale McFadden on keyboards, Eddie Perez on guitar and Robert Reynolds on multiple instruments. With a catalog spanning more than 20 years, the group formed in 1989 in Miami and released a self-titled album in 1991. Their critically acclaimed second album, "From Hell to Paradise," featured Malo's original songs and came out in 1992. Two years later, the hard-to-categorize band saw their third release, "What a Crying Shame," become a major commercial success, going platinum with the title track becoming a Top 40 hit on the Billboard charts.
Major honors soon followed, with the Mavericks winning Country Music Awards for Country Vocal Group of the Year in 1995 and 1996 and a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group in 1995. The second single, "All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down," from their 1995 album, "Music for All Occasions," peaked at #13 on the Billboard music charts. After releasing several more albums, the group went on a hiatus for several years before reuniting to collaborate on "In Time."
