For a time in the mid '90s, the Mavericks were on top of the neo-traditional country world. The Miami band featuring the amazing talents of singer Raul Malo scored a hit in 1996 with "All You Ever Want to Do is Bring Me Down" and even won a Grammy Award. Sadly, Malo went solo in 2004 and the Mavericks called it a day.
Thankfully, the Mavericks reunited in 2011 and released the album In Time two years later. The album received rave reviews and the band has been touring the world ever since. With the band set to visit the Granada this Saturday, drummer Paul Deakin spoke with DC9 about The Mavericks breaking up, getting back together and how commercial success may be a thing of the past.More »
