Grammy-winning country phenomenon The Mavericks are making their way to Des Moines.
The multi-platinum band is celebrating 30 years of entertaining the masses with their music. The Mavericks, founded in 1989, will be performing several tracks that have shaped the group's musical catalog. Their performance will include songs from their earlier days in Miami's punk and alternative scene as well as their chart-topping records from the 90s-2000s.
The Mavericks took a hiatus in 2004 when co-founder, singer and songwriter Raul Malo explored new musical endeavors.The group reunited in 2012.
In a news release, Malo explains that the group would like to move forward with their music and celebrate with fans. "I always want to move forward with our music and look to the future, and our fans want that too," Malo said.
"If you can't celebrate 30 years in such a tough business as the music industry, what can you celebrate? I'm proud that we've made our mark and it's good to celebrate that," he added. "I think we've found the perfect way to mark these 30 years without thinking only about the past and I'm really excited to get out and play these shows."
The "What A Crying Shame" band who entwined the sounds of Tex-Mex, Latino and Tejano music with country and rock 'n' roll will take the stage at Hoyt Sherman Place Sunday, Oct. 6. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $45-$65 and can be purchased at HoytSherman.org.
