LOS ANGELES, CA (February 16, 2016) – THE MAVERICKS took center stage at the Microsoft Theater yesterday during the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony® to perform “All Night Long,” which scored a nomination for Best American Roots Song and was penned by Cuban American frontman RAUL MALO. The musical comrades – Malo, PAUL DEAKIN (drums), EDDIE PEREZ (guitars) and JERRY DALE MCFADDEN (keyboards) – garnered a nod in the Best Americana Album category for MONO and once again demonstrated “This is why human beings make music” (The Los Angeles Times). Fans can watch the performance here.
Surprising the room at El Cid Saturday, The Mavericks treated patrons to a pre-Grammy preview with hits like “Back In Your Arms Again,” “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down”, “Come Unto Me” and a cover of “Born On The Bayou,” with Latin Grammy Award winner El Twanguero joining the set. The band, who formed over two decades ago in Miami, will bring more sizzle to the stage when they return to Los Angeles on March 5 for a tour stop at The Fonda Theatre.
Comprised of journalists’ votes from New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Billboard, Pitchfork.com, PopMatters.com and more, the dynamic band was deemed #1 “Best Live Act” in the Nashville Scene 16th annual Country Music Critics Poll. Exuding feel-good vibes, unmistakable energy and a melting pot of genre influences, the reigning Americana Music Awards Duo/Group of the Year also earned top spots on several 2015 “Best of Lists” from esteemed music critics at The Los Angeles Times, NPR and Rolling Stone.
The Mavericks’ unique sound is showcased across the globe and on critically-acclaimed albums – MONO (2015) and IN TIME (2013) – joining the masses with the most universal language of all … music.
