Celebrating over two decades of performing together, THE MAVERICKS will embark on the 25 LIVE TOUR February 27 with the same fervor and euphoria they have been known for. The GRAMMY Award-winning group, who the Village Voice proclaimed, “in a word or three, the Mavericks are cool as sh*t,” scored a slot on The Boston Globe’s Top 10 Concerts of 2013.
“While the band was formed in the summer of 1989, our first show wasn’t until months later … making 2014 our twenty-fifth year together and we’re very excited to get back out on the road,” says guitarist Robert Reynolds. “In many ways, our fans have become de facto members of the group and it seems high time we throw a party!”
In spite of an indefinite divergence in 2004, The Mavericks musical connection never fizzled and last February, Cuban-American frontman Raul Malo and vivacious musicians Paul Deakin, Robert Reynolds, Eddie Perez and Jerry Dale McFadden reconnected to release a new album IN TIME (The Valory Music Co.). The band's return has sparked critical-acclaim for both their new music and exhilarating live shows. No Depression said, “…the energy of a locomotive barreling down a track at a hundred miles an hour. The chemistry between these guys is so good that you wonder why they ever split up.” Armed with an unmatched sound and fresh songs, it’s no wonder the project found its way onto many music 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 new TV drama “Killer Women,” in which the band also made a cameo appearance performing "Dance In The Moonlight."
Fans will be treated to new music and hits like “Here Comes The Rain,” “Crying Shame,” “Dance The Night Away” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down,” which earned The Mavericks a plethora of industry awards.
