LIVE AT THE SCHOONER SHOWROOM
Halifax, NS – Casino Nova Scotia presents The Mavericks live in the Schooner Showroom for one night only, November 8th!
The eclectic American band, combines nontraditional country music, Latin, and rockabilly influences to create their signature sound. The Mavericks were founded in 1989 in Miami, Florida. Between 1991 and 2003, the band recorded six studio albums, in addition to charting 14 singles on the Billboard country charts. Their highest-peaking American single was 1996’s “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down“, a collaboration with accordionist Flaco Jiménez. They are best known in the UK for their 1998 single “Dance the Night Away,” which spent 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at number 4. In 1996, The Mavericks won a Grammy Award for the song “Here Comes the Rain.”
The band split up in 2004, and lead singer Raul Malo released six solo albums. Bass player Robert Reynolds and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden co-founded the ‘supergroup’ SWAG, along with Ken Coomer of Wilco, Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick, and Doug Powell. In 2012, the band announced plans for several reunion festival dates. Shortly after, they were offered a record deal by Big Machine Records. Their reunion album In Time, was released in 2013, and another album, Mono, in 2015.
Now the genre-defying group is declaring their independence and stepping out with their first studio album to be released on the label they founded in 2016, Mono Mundo Recordings. Flashing the same exhilarating, beyond-category style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the ‘90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny.
