The Mavericks
Waterfront Blues Festival
Portland, Oregon
July 6, 2018

Another year is here and I'll try to get as much of it as I can again. The Festival is again being broadcast by KBOO FM. They are a community radio station which is listener funded. Please support them if you can. Only four day's this year since the 4th is on a Wednesday. Again, I've tried to find and "fix" all the blemishes. Enjoy the show's....twofthrs

The genre-defying Mavericks have declared their independence and stepped out on their own with Brand New Day, the first studio album released on Mono Mundo Recordings, the label they founded in 2016. Brand New Day is the follow-up to the widely praised albums Mono (2015) and In Time (2013).

Flashing the same exhilarating, eclectic style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the �90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny. �This is the first studio record on our own label, and it is an important component in the band�s history,� Malo says, �but the real goal was just to make a great record.�

The new collection � co-produced like its immediate predecessors by the band�s golden-voiced singer Raul Malo and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge), who is partnered with the band in the new Mono Mundo imprint � features the core members of the group since their reformation: Malo, drummer Paul Deakin, guitarist Eddie Perez, and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden, along with auxiliary members �the Fantastic Four� filling out the set�s brawny sound with their signature accordion and horns.
