Miami-Founded, Grammy Award-Winning Band, the Mavericks, to Play at Arsht this March



The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) is pleased to present Miami-founded, genre-bending band, THE MAVERICKS (@the_mavericks) on March 15, 2024 at 8 p.m. as part of the Live at Knight series in the Center’s Knight Concert Hall. 


Tickets for THE MAVERICKS range from $45-$90* and may be purchased now online at arshtcenter.org, or at the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722.


THE MAVERICKS, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, have gone through three distinct phases since their founding in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ’90s. A long hiatus starting in 2003, when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 that held long enough for the band to recently celebrate its 30th anniversary.


THE MAVERICKS ushered in the fourth phase of its evolution with the No. 1 Billboard debut of their first-ever, all-Spanish album, En Español, released in 2020 on the band’s own Mono Mundo label. Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi and reimagined Afro-Cuban classics. Seven of the tunes are gems drawn from the vast Latin American songbook, while five are originals written or co-written by the band’s frontman, Raul Malo.

 

THE MAVERICKS' infectious live show, which fuses rock, latin, Tex-Mex, norteño and salsa varieties, has earned the group worldwide recognition as “America’s greatest live dance band.” Fronted by Cuban-American vocalist Raul Malo, whose timeless and inimitable voice NPR Music calls "one of the best in the U.S.," THE MAVERICKS have remained a highly-coveted touring ensemble for over three decades.

 

Joined by special guest Hector Tellez Jr., whose classic-rock swagger and exotic flair have garnered him a passionate audience in his homeland of Cuba, THE MAVERICKS will be performing hits like “Dance the Night Away,” “All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down,” and “What a Crying Shame.”
