More about Raul:
Malo, born in Miami of Cuban parents, started playing bass guitar in high school. In the ’80s, Malo and a high-school friend, Robert Reynolds (bass), joined together to form their own country band, based on their mutual love for Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline. They named the band, The Mavericks. The Mavericks went on to become one of the outstanding country bands of the ’90s, a band that seamlessly and successfully blended Tex-Mex rhythms with country and rockabilly.
Under Malo’s leadership, The Mavericks released their debut self-titled album in the fall of 1990. The album managed to grab the attention of many big labels. Their album, “What a Crying Shame,” brought forth financial fortunes when it was released in 1994, with its title track reaching the Top 40; the album went platinum by spring 1995. Their, CD, “Music for All Occasions,” released in 1995, made gold. The Mavericks eventually won a Grammy and the Country Music Association twice bestowed them with Top Vocal Group honors.
