After spending the last two nights in Montreal, the Tex-Mex sounds of the Mavericks hit Freeport last evening. From the moment they strolled on the stage with no real introduction they had the audience jumping, dancing and toe-tappin'. If you know of anyone who doesn't get too excited about anything, take them to a Maverick's concert. Lead singer Raul Malo's voice is amazing. He can sing anything. And the antics of 'blue smurf' keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden, jumping from electric piano to organ, was fun to watch. The centerpiece of the band were these two and lead guitarist Eddie Perez and drummer Paul Deakin. Backing them up was the horn section (sax and trumpet), a standup bass player and a main ingredient to any Tex-Mex influenced band, an accordion. I'm not going through the entire setlist, but I can tell you that my favorites were: "Back in Your Arms Again", "Blue Bayou", "Dance the Night Away", "Born to Be Blue", "Guantanamera" that morphed into "Twist and Shout", that brought the audience to its feet and dancing. The encore ended with my favorite."All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down". The eight member band then took its customary bow, arm in arm, at the center of the stage and later in the darkness the tour bus pulled out headed back into Canada to St. Johns, New Brunswick. Want a fun night? Catch one of their shows. They are back in the States soon and then off to England. Great concert. One of the best I've seen. And for ZERO dollars. What a deal! *ps I want his orange guitar!
