The Mavericks On Mountain Stage
The Mavericks' members make their second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Since their emergence in the 1990s, they've remained one of the most critically acclaimed groups in roots music. They've focused on the sounds of traditional country and rock 'n' roll, but have always brought something extra thanks to the compelling tastes of lead singer and songwriter Raul Malo, whose parents were from Cuba.
After releasing gold and platinum albums and charting several Top 20 hits, The Mavericks took a break in 1999 to focus on solo endeavors. The group has re-formed a few times in the years since, but finds new focus and energy on its newest album, Mono.
