“Get in the Christmas Spirit With the Mavericks’ ‘Happy Holiday’ Music Video - In the Mavericks' hands, the Irving Berlin-penned classic becomes a sultry Christmas message… from the set of the band's forthcoming Christmas special. Raul Malo, sings and plays the Christmas classic with the band's signature flair.

" slowing down the song lyrics gave them an edge that put the song in a whole other light,’ Malo explains. ‘We made this video ... as an homage to those 'end of the night' feelings: a little joy, a little melancholy, a little romance, a little sadness, a little bit of everything -- like a real Christmas ..." – The Boot

“For our first-ever Holiday Special, we had the honor of hosting the one and only JD McPherson, as well as the great young Cuban rock band Sweet Lizzy Project, performing songs from their critically acclaimed Christmas records. Needless to say, it was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever done, with a festive set that had everyone in the spirit! Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday to all...We’ll see you soon.” – Raul Malo


"I highly recommend tuning into the pay-per-view specials from one of my favorite bands of all time, the Mavericks. I caught the first one, and beyond the great video and crystalline audio during this performance on a soundstage--with all COVID safety protocols stringently observed, lead singer and songwriter Raul Malo assured viewers--to me it showed a way forward during this time when live music is so difficult to make... The performances were as spirited as this band always feels live… but the sharp camera work took viewers inside the band in a more intimate way than possible even if you were standing in the front row at one of their shows… One commenter nailed it: The Mavericks have created the gold standard of online performance. Another said ‘…I wasn't missing live music for the first time in 6 months - amazing how a really well filmed and recorded session with the right energy can almost put you there!”- Randy Lewis, Longtime Los Angeles Times Music Critic


Multifaceted rockers the Mavericks bring tidings of comfort and joy on their spirited holiday album Hey! Merry Christmas! As is their way, the quartet hopscotches through a variety of sounds from country to pop to Latin-inflected numbers, all in the name of providing the perfect soundtrack for your holiday party. From the naughty (especially the winking “Santa Wants to Take You For a Ride”) to the nice… From festive crowd sing-alongs like the title track to late night mistletoe rendezvous music like “I Have Wanted You (For Christmas),” the Grammy-winning group is here to help you jingle all the way.” – Entertainment Weekly


“The Mavericks have always been up for some dancing and some romancing, so it makes perfect sense that they'd want to throw a little party for the holiday season., Hey! Merry Christmas! is the first seasonal album from the group, featuring nine original tunes that celebrate Yuletide in their trademark retro-pop-Latin-roots music style, along with two familiar numbers from days gone by. The Mavericks have long shown a fondness for pop music's past, and they put their skills to good use… "Santa Wants to Take You for a Ride" is a slinky R&B number with a hint of double entendre in the lyrics, "Christmas Time Is (Coming 'Round Again)" and the title cuts are rockin' numbers suitable for dancing, "Santa Does" and "One More Christmas" merge upbeat lyrics with good-natured sentimentality… Raul Malo's big-as-all-outdoors voice was made to order for this music... Hey! Merry Christmas! delivers a solid shot of good cheer for the holidays, and if this doesn't get a party started when you put it on, you and your friends need to ask Santa to bring you some coolness.”

The Mavericks ‘Hey! Merry Christmas!’ Delivers New Christmas Songs With A Timeless Feel…

eight Christmas originals, with two covers thrown in for good measure… Most of the songs on this album are lively, joyful tunes aiming to spread the holiday cheer… Throughout it all, the highlight is Malo’s signature vocals, which still echoes a mixture of cool Presley inflections and sweet Orbison crooning. While Hey! Merry Christmas! is mostly comprised of new tunes, The Mavericks have a knack of creating songs that immediately sound timeless and retain a classic feel.” – American Highways
