The Mavericks, Zaterdag 17 Februari 2018 Het Depot, Leuven (B)

De legendarische Amerikaanse countryband The Mavericks combineert tex-mex, western swing en americana tot een uniek soort latin-countryrock. Hun grootste hit ‘Dance The Night Away‘ uit 1998 doet het nog steeds goed op dansvloeren over de hele wereld, maar ze scoorden ook met het Grammy-winnende nummer ‘Here Comes The Rain‘ en ‘All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down‘ (met Flaco Jiménez). Kortom: een heerlijke avond warmbloedige americana door rasmuzikanten!


The Mavericks were founded more than 25 years ago by Malo and Deakin as a standout alternative band in a Miami rock scene dominated by hair metal and punk. Improbably, they were noticed by super-producer Tony Brown in Nashville, and when they got signed to innovative MCA Records, they upended expectations in country music. Their blend of Cuban grooves and Bakersfield-inspired twang netted them several CMA and ACM Awards plus a Grammy in 1995. They charted numerous singles and albums while earning accolades as one of the finest live bands in the business. There was some time off and re-jiggering of personnel, but they came back strong with 2013’s In Time and 2015’s Mono, albums that provided abundant material for a refreshed and unmatched stage show.

“We’ve traveled a lot in the last four years. And we’ve come back from a hiatus of nine years to find a brand new purpose — not just to go out and play for tickets and do the oldies,” says Eddie Perez. “Not many bands get to come back from that long to have another moment like this. So I believe it to be quite special.”
