A flurry of buzz elicited a hunger for more music, more signature swagger … more of The Mavericks. The Village Voice blatantly stated, “in a word or three, the Mavericks are cool as sh*t,” while No Depression insisted, “…the energy of a locomotive barreling down a track at a hundred miles an hour. The chemistry between these guys is so good…” Fans from the US, Canada, London, Australia, Scotland and places in between turned out for their exhilarating run of live shows throughout the last year of headline dates.
“This band has always defied the odds and expectations…a country band from Miami with a Cuban singer? But it works, because people feel the passion,” explained The Mavericks’ guitarist Eddie Perez.
More Mono details and tour stops will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, get a sneak peek below.
