Country-Latin Rockers The Mavericks have schedules a show at the Fargo Theatre on October 10, 2019. Their unique sound was born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse.
The group rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like What A Crying Shame and All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down. Then they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic Dance The Night Away.
Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004 The Mavericks went on hiatus while frontman Raul Malo explored new musical avenues. Since a reunion in 2012, this band has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts.
It’s a reputation based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly and Latino sounds plus a riotously entertaining, world-renowned live show. A Mavericks’ gig is a guaranteed party night encompassing everything from the essential Dance The Night Away to the infectious Tejano-ska hybrid of Back In Your Arms Again – and, on occasion, even wild cards like a Mavericks take on The Beatles Back In The USSR.
The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great songwriting traditions of Cuba and Miami, of Nashville and San Antonio and Memphis.
