Mavericks are by far my favorite 2015 concert since the Stones. Some of their older influences are Wilco & Cheap Trick. You just smile hearing these guys & it’s Tex Mex with great vocals. Paul Deakin on drums looking very serious on that stage – I don’t think you want to piss him off. This band is just plain fun to watch!
Lead singer & founder Raul Malo is from Miami – lots of Cuban influence & an incredible voice. Raul did an acoustic solo that was pure, classic flamingo, his voice has been compared to Roy Orbison. This was a sold out show & their 1st time at the zoo, the Mavericks sound better live than on any Mp3, and most everyone at this show would agree!
I’ve worked in healthcare media production for over 20 years. My images of patients & providers is a window to their world often captured at a vulnerable time. As a senior producer, I’ve experienced the insane, delightful but always educational challenges in creating images and stories.
