HOLD on to your Stetson partner – The Mavericks are set to dance the night away with their new-country style music at the Regent in Ipswich.
This is the first time the unique American four-piece band have toured in four years, bringing their mix of rock music and country to the town. The Ipswich Regent is their only East Anglian date and fans are expected to flock from all around the region.
The Mavericks are fronted by singer-songwriter Raul Malo on guitar, supported by Robert Earl Reynolds on bass, Paul Wylie Deakin on drums and Eddie Perez on lead guitar. The packed out venue can expect tracks from the album Trampoline, which shot them to fame and launched the global hit Dance the Night Away, and new material.
Tickets are expected to sell like hot cakes for the gig on October 29 and are on sale now priced at £22.50.
Rosie Howard, Regent press and publicity manager, said: "We are pleased The Mavericks will return to the Regent and we expect the show to sell out fairly quickly. It will not be as popular as Misteeq but there are a lot of country fans in this area. Last time the band played here was in 1998 when their single Dance the Night away was a big hit and the show was a sell-out."
Since then the band had a short break when Raul Malo took some time out for a solo project.

But now they are back and fans will be able to hear The Mavericks' new self-titled album over a month before the gig when it is released in the UK on September 22.
The Mavericks recorded the album this summer at Nashville's famed Ocean Way Studios.
Ten of the 11 tracks were written of co-written by Raul Malo. Willie Nelson joins him for vocals on Time Goes By for their first recorded collaboration. The other track is a cover version of The Hollies' classic The Air That I Breathe, performed in the Mavericks' own distinctive style.
