About the Event
“They’re Grammy winners and—more importantly—party starters.” — NPR The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, has gone through three distinct phases since it was founded in Miami in 1989: an initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the 1990s, a long hiatus starting 2003 when the musicians each went their own way, and, finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012, which held long enough for them to recently celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary. Now, The Mavericks have ushered in the fourth phase of their evolution with the #1 Billboard debut of their first all-Spanish album, En Español. 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, including five originals written or co-written by singer-guitarist Raul Malo. En Español flips the band’s usual fusion formula, adding a striking assortment of genres—salsa, ska, norteño, mariachi, and much more—to its sturdy country/rock/Tex-Mex base and streaking the solidly Latin foundation with irreverent rock and twangy guitars. “Since their emergence in the 1990s, they’ve remained one of the most critically acclaimed groups in roots music.” — NPR “From the moment the band took the stage, frontman Raul Malo had the crowd dancing in the aisles, particularly with faves like ‘What You Do to Me’ and ‘Easy As It Seems.’” — MassLive “Malo is one of contemporary music’s finest and most gifted singers.” — Creative Loafing Tampa Bay
Robert Jon & The Wreck Hailing from Southern California, Robert Jon & The Wreck take a classic Southern rock sound and make it their own. Since the band’s inception in 2011, Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums, background vocals), Henry James Schneekluth (lead guitar, background vocals), Warren Murrel (bass), and new member Jake Abernathie (keyboards) have been electrifying audiences all over the world with their soaring guitar leads, rich vocal harmonies, and memorable tunes. They have performed with Joe Bonamassa, Blackberry Smoke, Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy, and Rival Sons, and their recent EP, One of a Kind, was produced by Don Was (Bonnie Raitt, The Rolling Stones, John Mayer) and Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons). Their album Live at the Ancienne Belgique prompted Music News to rave it was “one of the best live albums I have heard in years.”
