The band’s live shows are expansive and joyous, bursting with musical chemistry and elevated by frontman Raul Malo’s majestic, emotion-charged vocals.

Currently performing as an eight-piece with the addition of standup bass, accordion and a two-man horn section, the Mavericks — minus recently departed founding bassist Robert Reynolds — flexed their fire and flexibility on this, the last night of a tour leading up to the release of their new live album All Night Live (due out Oct. 14.)
