After numerous sold-out shows with lead singer and songwriter Raul Malo, The Ridgefield Playhouse is happy to present the full band The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for lively performances that transcend traditional musical boundaries.
Founded in Miami in 1989, The Mavericks had a string of big hits and critical acclaim in the ‘90s. After band members decided to explore and push their own musical boundaries in the early 2000’s, the band had a triumphant reunion in 2012 and recently celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2019. Now, in 2021 they are back and ranking on the Billboard charts with their first all-Spanish language album, En Español, last August. The album, which celebrates the Latin roots of singer Raul Malo and guitarist Eddie Perez, hit #1 on the Billboard charts- the first ever for a Billboard debut of an all Spanish album.
Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, as the title suggests, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi to reimagined Afro-Cuban classics. Seven of the tunes are familiar gems drawn from the vast Latin American songbook, while five are originals written or co-written by Malo. And of course The Mavericks add their signature country/rock/Tex-Mex flavors and a refreshing spontaneity to the mix. Don’t miss this night of Mav favorites and new tunes, all done in unmistakable Mavericks style.
Dance Alert – This is a reserved seated event but The Mavericks show is a veritable party. There will be points during the show that the band will encourage the audience to stand, participate and dance.
