Grammy Award-winners The Mavericks play two shows at the Capitol Theatre - Wednesday, April 30, and Friday, May 2.
CLEARWATER - Due to overwhelming demand, Grammy Award-winners The Mavericks added second show at the Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, April 30 at 8 p.m. A few tickets also may be available for the show on Friday, May 2, also starting at 8 p.m.
Nearly 20 years after their first major label release, a Grammy and numerous industry awards, The Mavericks are back.
The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer that emerged from Miami in 1989 has reunited after an eight-year hiatus. 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.
Their captivating new album, In Time, which was released in 2013, continues to receive rave reviews. The “most interesting band in the world” has captured the infectious energy and robust sound from their live shows on their new Valory Music release. Songs like Dance in the Moonlight, the Orbison-esque Born to Be Blue, the horn-punctuated retro noir Back in Your Arms Again and the Tejano-esque All Over Again show that the Mavericks have once again found the way to make genre-defying soul music.
For Raul Malo, the lead singer with the rich supple voice that’s second only to Roy Orbison in its ability to convey lonesomeness, desire and vivre; drummer Paul Deakin and multi-instrumentalist Robert Reynolds; as well as longtime collaborator keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and seasoned guitarist Eddie Perez, life has become richer in terms of experience, playing acumen and a sense of their own musicality.
It has also deepened the connection between them in a way that heightens the singular chemistry that made Grammy-winning band one of the most exciting live acts in any musical genre.
