San Antonio's Michael Guerra Band to open during the Texas swing of the tour
Alt-Country super group The Mavericks returned to Texas last night and played a private party for Senator Kirk Watson in Austin but fear not Maverick fans. You will three opportunities to see the band live...well two if you have not already gotten your tickets to the sold out Gruene Hall show.
The band, led by the silky smooth vocalist Raul Malo consists of Robert Reynolds, Paul Deakin Jerry Dale McFadden and Eddie Perez. They are accompanied by San Antonio accordionist Michael Guerra (The Michael Guerra Band) upright bassist Elio Giordano (The Hank Sinatra Band) and a searing horn section that will blow your hair back.
The Mavericks, who are touring off of their 7th studio album, “In Time,” have crisscrossed the United States and Canada, toured Europe and Australia and now return to Texas, (where the tour began), for three shows (not counting last nights Zilker Park show). "In Time" reached the #39 on the Billboard Top 200.
Saturday night, The Mavericks return to ACL, Austin City Limits and return October 12th. Sunday night, The Mavericks return to Dallas, Texas and the beautiful Granada Theater (which sold out last year) with San Antonio based The Michael Guerra Band opening. Both groups return to Gruene Hall for a sold out show on the 10th and hit the stage in Austin's Continental Club on the 11th. As of this writing, some tickets remain to the Granada show but not many and tickets are still available for the Continental Club show but won't last long..
