THE MAVERICKS WITH NICK LOWE AND LOS STRAITJACKETS Thursday, September 26, 2019 8:00pm • Brown Theatre

Written By Andrew Harrison

S

ometimes all you need for things to go right is a little time. The Mavericks—masters of country-Latin rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse—rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like “What A Crying 14

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.

A U D I E N C E


But since a reunion in 2012, this most singular of bands has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts on touring and festival circuit across the planet. 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. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good. “Being away from the band felt like being in a kung fu movie, where you go into the mountains on a mystical path to gain special wisdom,” laughs singer, guitarist, key songwriter and founder Mavericks member Raul Malo. “We needed that time away, and a big dose of humility too. It was good for us. That humility and that understanding of each other is what informs the band now. I think it makes us by far the best incarnation of this band yet.” Raul and drummer Paul Deakin were there at the beginning, in Miami, where Raul was born and Paul moved when he was 8 years old. The melting pot of this great city where Cuban, Caribbean, Latino and rock ’n’ roll cultures all clash gave The Mavericks their musical DNA. In the streets Raul would hear marching band music and salsa, and at home the magnificence of his mom’s opera records.

Rock ’n’ roll came to him through Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert or The Midnight Special on TV. But the record that really changed his life was Elvis Presley’s operatic epic of love and longing “It’s Now or Never.” “That connected to every kind of music I liked from classical to The Beatles,” he says. “I’ve spent my life emulating that record.” “We found that our recipe for success was the same thing that sustained us musically: mix it up,” says Paul. “Try things. And we found that nobody sounded like us.” There was something special in his musical partner, too. “Some people say Raul’s become the voice of a generation,” says Paul. “I’d agree with that.”

“WE FOUND THAT OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS WAS THE SAME THING THAT SUSTAINED US MUSICALLY: MIX IT UP.” The Mavericks’ rise in the ’90s was meteoric, but success takes its toll. “Looking back, none of us were ready for it,” says Raul. “It was so fast and intense that we kind of got burned out with one another. The band just started to fall apart from within.” Mismanagement of money had added to the pressure by the early 2000s. “It became an untenable situation,” explains Raul. “Our resources and goodwill started to run out. Looking back, we just didn’t have the knowledge and experience to deal with how big it got, and how fast.” Not long after the release of their 2003 album, The Mavericks, the band split. For Raul, The Mavericks’ hiatus years became “a kind of musical quest … I threw

A U D I E N C E

myself into the lion’s den.” But playing with other people gave him some perspective on why he does what he does. There were rumors that the band would get back together, and though they weren’t true, he kept them at the back of his mind as a “What If?” Then the offers of touring deals became more real, and he realized that the songs he was writing had more and more of a Mavericks vibe. “It made me think, ‘Damn, is this the time?’” When his friend and fellow singersongwriter Seth Walker asked him to help finish a song, the signs became unmistakable. “I was like, you’re shitting me,” Raul laughs. “The Mavericks are going to get back together with a song called ‘Back in Your Arms Again’? Sometimes life gives you signs and it’s up to you if you read them.” Within a few months, management had orchestrated a reunion tour, the band members sat down and laid down some new rules, “ … and here we are.” The band was clear from Day One that this was not some nostalgia trip. The Mavericks were back for real. When the band sat down for their first dinner together in many years, Raul was clear that he didn’t just want to play the old

16

stuff this time. He’d written a really great record, a Mavericks record. Did they want to do it? Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Records, home of Taylor Swift, was interested, and within two weeks, the re-formed Mavericks were in the studio with Niko Bolas producing. The first track they did was “Back in Your Arms Again.” “From that note when we first played together, those eight years we’d been apart were just wiped away,” says Paul Deakin. “Whatever that indispensable connection we had, it’s right there.” The band is now four albums into its second phase and thoroughly enjoying the new world of the music business, where it’s all about the live performance—an arena where The Mavericks always excelled. A Mavericks show mixes the best of the past with the new material and the fans love the latter as much if not more than the former. “And the best thing is,” adds soft-spoken keyboard player Jerry Dale McFadden, “we’ve stayed true to the name of the band. I don’t know if these guys knew when they chose the name just how maverick The Mavericks would turn out to be. But we are.” Visit Audience502.com for the full article.
