Reuniting in 2012 after an eight year hiatus, The Mavericks released their latest record, In Time, this past February. The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer that had emerged from Miami in 1989 with their sultry debut that was equal parts innocence, intensity, and vintage influences has reunited in 2012 after an eight-year hiatus. Time has a way of melting when you’re busy living life – and two decades have passed since their polyrhythmic brand of post-modern country has given the world “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down,” “Here Comes The Rain,” and “Dance The Night Away.”

With their new album, time melts once again, and the band that defied definitions, blurred genres, and made everybody feel good is back. The “most interesting band in the world” has captured the infectious energy and robust sound from their live shows on their new Valory Music release In Time. Songs like “Dance In The Moonlight,” the Orbison-esque “Born To Be Blue,” the horn-punctuated retro noir “Back In Your Arms Again,” and the Tejano-esque All Over Again” show that The Mavericks have once again found the way to make genre-defying soul music.

In addition to the show in Fredericton, The Mavericks will also be performing at Casino Nova Scotia’s Schooner Room on Saturday Nov. 16. Complete show details for both shows can be found on the Sonic Concerts website.
