BETTER THAN EVER!!!
Saw the mavericks at Gruene Sunday night, 11/4. They were super, as always...Raul's voice, Eddie's riffs, Jerry's keyboards, Lorenzo's trumpet...what a sound smorgasbord! And best of all, they make you feel they are having as much fun as you are! I truly hope they keep touring in Texas forever.

THE MAVERICKS AT GRUENE HALL TX.
Just saw the Mavericks at Gruene last evening. Excellent show, Raul was excellent. The sound was great and the beer flowed. Songs brought back memories. If you haven’t seen them , you must !!!!

GET READY TO HAVE FUN
Great show. I love the mix of there set list. It rain just before and it just added to the atmosphere and brought the crowd closer. The Mavericks really entertain. Got everyone singing and dancing. What a tight band, Raul's voice was great, and the Horns outstanding! Listening to them now as I'm writing this review. They played Us and Them by Pink Floyd. what! A must see good time, Highly recommend seeing them.

MAVERICKS AT DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS 7/9/18
Excellent concert at an excellent venue. The band was totally into the crowd, and vice versa. Seemed like the people didn't want it to end, nor did the Mavericks. Great sound, and a great evening of music.
Mike & Carol from Millarville, Alberta
We saw the Mavericks for the first time over 20 years ago in England, and several tiimes since. Last night was the best they have ever been and we went home happy and feeling good. They work so hard in their performance , respecting the fans who appreciate good music. Thank you so much guys, keep going please - we can’t wait to see you again. Live music rocks!

MAVERICKS AT THE JUBILEE
The Mavericks show at the Jubilee was definitely a five Star performance. I don't agree with the review that said the sound was poor. They were loud and the sound was perfect once the first 3 or 4 songs were done. It always takes the sound guys a few songs to tweek everything. Once that was done the show was amazing!! Very talented musicians. great horns, and Who would of thought an Accordion solo would be that entertaining. As usual Raul Malo's voice was pitch perfect . The band had the entire place dancing for most of the concert. Not a lot of bands have the ability to do that. It looked like the band was having at least as much fun as the audience, maybe more. Hats off to the Mavericks getting better with age.

THE MAVERICKS, BETTER THAN EVER (BETTER!)
Great show at the historic Lincoln Theater at 13th & U St in Washington,DC. Great sound at this theater. Had 1st row balcony so did not have to stand all night like those in the orchestra seats :) - Excellent set list and Raul in great voice. They played just about everything from all aspects of their career. Raul had several nice solos and of course did Eddie. Great energy. Crowd into it on a Friday night. Even ended with Back in the USSR. Great! Horn players tight with excellent solos and accordian player fantastic. Bravo. They played around 2 hrs 20 minutes.
ROCKIN WITH THE MAVERICKS
My wife and loved the show they go out out of their way to make the crowd part of the show we will go again!

GREAT 30TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW
The 30th anniversary Mavericks show at the Beacon Theater in NYC on June 8th was amazing. The Mavericks were "Electric". Each member of the group displayed incredible music talent and collectively they had many of the audience standing and dancing. A great show with the Mavericks demonstrating their amazing talent and enthusiasm.

YOU CANNOT GO WRONG SEEING AND HEARING THE MAVERICKS LIVE!
Wow! How can we explain the greatest live band we've ever seen? A band that plays country, rock, blues, big band, polka, Tex/Mex, you name it. We put the Mavericks above even Chicago. Just an incredible, extremely entertaining show from start to finish at Hoyt Sherman in Des Moines. If you see no one else this year, go see the Mavericks. It is truly not just the Raul Malo show at all. Each and every band member is a super star whom holds his own. Long live the Mavericks!!!

MAVERICKS AT THE PABST THEATRE
Mostly I'm responding to the reviewer who thought Raul should not have told some crowd member to "Shut the F up!" I totally support him as I was on the second level and could hear these people talking. It was disrupting and that behavior belongs in a rowdy bar. Raul was about to sing "Blue Moon", which I believe he sang at Carnegie Hall, honoring Willie Nelson. Come on, this guy is a gem and deserves respect. I actually thought he might have not enjoyed himself as much because of this. The show, of course, was great on every level.

THE MAVERICKS AT BILLY BOB'S
Been a Mavericks fan since they came out with their 1st album, but never really got around to seeing them live until Friday. They did not disappoint. High energy and they are a joy to listen to. If you want anticsgimmicks, this is not the band for you. I've been to 2 shows now at Billy Bob's. Have to say, the sound there just sucks. It's just too cavernous of a place to get good acoustics. (Yes, I know there's been hundreds of acts that play there). Green Day at the Austin amphitheater had a better sound than at Billy Bob's. Highly recommend catching the Mavericks, but try and see them somewhere else other than BB's.

GREAT SHOW! GREAT TIME!
We are huge Mavericks fans, so they did not disappoint last night! If you've not been to a Mavericks show, be prepared to dance, sing and sweat. Not a "sit in your seat" band. They have so many hits to choose from, they could have played all night. I thought it was strange that Raul yelled at some standing near the stage to "shut the f*** up" but whatever.... The only thing keeping this from a 5 rating was I thought the encore would have been better with some Mavericks hits, although Hungry Heart was done very well!
Donna feistel from Raleigh, North Carolina
Great band. Raul's beautiful voice was not the center of the show. Certainly I wouldn't recognize them as the original Maverics I knew and loved. How about some of the old songs that I could recognize and really get into. "Garden "Party by Rick Nelson sums it up for me. Hey, no big deal just sayin!
Wayne from Calgary, Alberta
Great band but their unique blend of vocals, subtle guitars and harmonies were killed by the lousy sound. Way to loud, all bass , background vocals not heard, Raul Malo's wonderful vocal ability was way to loud. Whoever was responsible for the mix missed the mark.

THE MAVERICKS AT THE PABST THEATER
The Mavericks are dripping with talent & energy! They had the whole entire audience on their feet for most of the show. My wife & I didn't lose interest throughout the show until this... Apparently there were some people gathered by the stage and were apparently talking loudly. Disrepectful? Absolutely! Raul Malo got on the mike and said "Shut the f*** up...this isn't social hour, I can hear you all the way up here! So, shut the f*** up! At that point, some of the audience applauded, but we were appalled. Part of being a great musician, is remaining professional in ALL aspects! He could've handled that with a lot more class and dignity. Our respect level went way down after that. Not cool! Also, for their encore, they came back out doing other artists songs. If we wanted to hear that, we'd go see the other artists! They had plenty of their own tunes left we would've rather heard. Would we see them again? yes, most likely, but not with the same enthusiasm! Raul, just because you are a star, does not give you Carte Blanche to say and do what you want publicly!

THE MAVERICKS AT ASBURY PARK, NJ JUNE 15, 2018
Saw The Mavericks at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park last night. Very disappointed. We left after the 4th song. The band was so loud we couldn't hear anything Raul was singing. Great voice and possibly great show ruined by incompetent sound man.
Brian Davies from Cambridge ontario
Worst concert I’ve seen or heard for a band that have been around for thirty years maybe they are relying on long past performances.
