There are few bands who exemplify the term "WFUV Favorite" as well as The Mavericks do: Not easy to classify, but easy to love. Raul Malo, Robert Reynolds, Paul Deakin, Eddie Perez and Jerry Dale McFadden didn't disappoint the music lovers at Clearwater 2014, closing out the main Rainbow Stage on Saturday.

The Mavericks are back! It was cause for celebration in late 2011 when the band announced that they were going to kick it back into gear once again. Original members Raul Malo, Robert Reynolds and Paul Deakin were ready to make Mavericks magic again. Alongside the core three would be Eddie Perez, who first joined the band back in 2003, and newcomer Jerry Dale McFadden.

The Mavericks - Words and Music - 2013

by Rita Houston

The Mavericks (Raul Malo, Robert Reynolds, Paul Deakin, Eddie Perez and Jerry Dale McFadden, with added accompaniment on accordion, bass, saxophone and trumpet) landed in WFUV's Studio A on the eve of releasing their long-awaited reunion album, In Time. The 8-year wait was worth it for fans of the genre-defying Americana-ish combo, who spoke with WFUV's Rita Houston about their varied influences, their early days in Miami, and the joys of playing in a band with a shared history. And there were quite a few laughs as well!
