Mavericks at the Zoo


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!
