Photo Coverage: THE MAVERICKS Sleigh Bells Ring Out!

The Mavericks played the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post last night with their Sleigh Bells RING OUT! Show.

The show was a mixture of Christmas and their signature songs.
As Raul Malo put it...there are just enough Christmas songs in the show.

The Mavericks were formed over 25 years ago and the draw of the stage and the physics-defying energy loop of band and audience is what put them on the map in their first 1990s incarnation and what impelled them to reunite in 2012. Moreover, the road show of the Mavericks 2.0 has been so much more than a nostalgia tour for first generation fans. At the heart of their current performances are songs from the two post-reunion albums In Time and Mono.

'After all these years, for us to be able to play the songs that we want to play is a real privilege," says lead singer and founding member Raul Malo. "And that happens because of this symbiotic relationship between artist and audience.'

All Night Live Volume 1 opens a new chapter of the Mavericks' career as they introduce their new record label, Mono Mundo Recordings. Taking control of their own art and business destiny, after working with several major labels, fits perfectly with the spirit of the Mavericks circa 2016. The band officially consists of commanding tenor singer and guitarist Raul Malo, lead guitarist and vocalist Eddie Perez, keyboardist/singer Jerry Dale McFadden and drummer Paul Deakin. The touring band captured on these recordings is rounded out by the "Fantastic Four": Max Abrams on sax and percussion, Ed Friedland on upright bass, Julio Diaz on trumpet and Michael Guerra on accordion.
