The Famed Masters of Country-Latin Rock’n’Roll Return to Portsmouth for Two Nights!
Born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse–The Mavericks—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,” a 400,000-seller in the UK. Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004 The Mavericks went on hiatus while frontman Raul Malo explored new musical avenues.
But since a reunion in 2012, the band has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts in all of music, based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly and Latino sounds. The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great songwriting traditions of Cuba and Miami, of Nashville and San Antonio and Memphis. Now, thirty years in, The Mavericks are doing it their own way and reminding the world why they’re so good.
