Post The Mavericks
Not the basketball team... the band.

The Mavericks.

The most interesting band in the world.

Saw them last night.

Effing incredible. TONS of fun, and a totally killer band, musicianship-wise.

Folks, this band is what I call a five hundred mile band.

Which is to say: worth driving five hundred miles to see!

As it was, I was fortunate in that I barely broke fiddy miles to see them. :D

Bonus for us was, it was their homecoming... not quite, but almost, back to Miami... tons of enthusiastic, long time fans made this gig. A VERY appreciative crowd last night. Yes indeed it was!

A couple months ago when I told my wife I got tix, she shrugged: "Who?" "You know! THE MAVERICKS! Oh What A Crying Shame? There Goes My Heart? All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down?" "Who?" "..." (sheesh) "Trust me, Hon, you're gonna love this show!" "Ok. I guess..." :roll:

My wife danced most of the night away... she does not normally do this.

Happy wife = Happy life.

It was a good night!

Go see them if you have any opportunity at all.

And now you know! :D

Saw the Mavericks at the Country Jam. Thought the band sounded great but, was disappointed in the crowd. They would have been better received at the Mag Fest or one of the other Fest's the park offers. Don't get me wrong they had me dancing and singing along but, no encore. They didn't play Tell me Why, All I ever do is bring me down, Fool #1 or The Air that I breathe.
Bummer. Still love me some Mavericks and was glad to have seen them play live.

That's a new one for me. Here is another that some local musicians are raving about, but I've been a slug and have not checked them out yet: NAUGHTY PROFESSOR. From New orleans, I believe.

LISTEN, GOSH DARN IT, I'VE ALREADY GOT TOO MANY BANDS TO KEEP TRACK OF! HOW AM I GONNA FIT IN TWO MORE?
