“Consummate skill (and) clarion charisma” – NPR
Raul Malo is the incomparable frontman of the genre-defying band The Mavericks and the sole writer of many of their songs. His free-wheeling, swaggering style seamlessly blends neotraditional country, cow-punk, rockabilly, and Latin rhythmic fervor, and features his lush, soaring baritone. His compositional craftsmanship includes penning progressive and timeless hits like “Here Comes the Rain,” “Crying Shame” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.” From his earliest days, when his raucous sound broke ground at the punk clubs on Miami Beach nearly three decades ago, Malo has had a demonstrable skill for getting people to groove. His Montalvo concert is sure to have you “Danc(ing) the Night Away” in the Carriage House Theatre aisles!
