Tex-Mex Country Rock Group The Mavericks Perform at Mississippi Moon Bar on July 17

DUBUQUE, IOWA–Multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning country-Latino group The Mavericks will bring their 30th Anniversary Tour to Mississippi Moon Bar on Friday, July 17.

The masters of country-Latin rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse – rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like “What A Crying Shame” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.” Then, they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic “Dance The Night Away,” a 400,000-seller in the U.K. Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004, The Mavericks went on hiatus while front man, Raul Malo, explored new musical avenues.

But since a reunion in 2012, the band has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts on the touring and festival circuit across the planet. It’s a reputation based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly, and Latino sounds, plus, a riotously entertaining, world-renowned live show.

The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great song-writing traditions of Cuba and Miami, and of Nashville, San Antonio, and Memphis. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good.

Showtime is at 8 p.m. with ticket prices starting at $25, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets go on-sale Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. at www.MoonBarRocks.com, Diamond Jo Casino’s Diamond Club, the Mississippi Moon Bar Box Office, or by calling 563-690-4800.
