The Mavericks, the country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer, will perform at the Harvester Center in Rocky Mount on Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 8 p.m.
The post-punk band with deep retrofittings from Miami's indie scene that emerged in 1989 reunited in 2012 after an eight-year hiatus.
With their latest album, "In Time," the band that defied definitions, blurred genres and made everybody feel good is back with their infectious energy and robust sound, playing hits like "Here Comes My Baby" and "Back in Your Arms Again."
During their time apart, band members Raul Malo, Paul Deakin, Robert Reynolds, Jerry Dale McFadden and Eddie Perez said life experience has enhanced their playing acumen and their individual sense of musicality.
"The fans have always understood us," says Malo. "We made them feel good -- and that was something then, as now I think, people wanted. Life is so serious, so even for a moment, let's forget and enjoy!"
Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 the day of the show. The box office opens at 4 p.m. and the doors open at 7 p.m.
