The Mavericks SYMPHONY HALL, BIRMINGHAM MORE than two hours of wonderful Latin American-infused country music can mean only one thing. The Mavericks are back!
The band has happily reunited after splitting up nearly 10 years ago, and seemingly didn't want to leave the stage after twice coming back for more.
The Mavericks, with Cuban American vocalist Raul Malo in great voice and Eddie Perez outstanding on lead guitar, demonstrated just what a superb live band they are.
With the regular Mavericks swelled to nine musicians, they opened with tracks from the new In Time album, including singles Back In Your Arms Again and Born To Be Blue.
But the band that previously produced 14 singles in the Billboard country charts also delighted with old favourites such as There Goes My Heart, I've Got This Feeling and Dance The Night Away.
The first encore included an amazing rendition of the Beatles' Twist and Shout, before The Mavericks returned for more, including All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.
Verdict: TONY COLL
