The Mavericks En Español
September 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The award-winning band The Mavericks will perform a second show at the 2021 Great New York State Fair, with all songs being sung in Spanish. The Chevy Court show will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, September 5, prior to their 8 p.m. show, which will be their regular concert performance. All shows in the Chevrolet Music Festival are free with $3 admission to the Fair.
The Mavericks released En Español last August, at the end of a creative journey that took the band to Cuba for a Public Broadcasting Service special on Cuban music and culture. Lead singer Raul Malo’s parents emigrated from Cuba before Malo was born. Combining new songs from The Mavericks with their interpretation of classics of the Latin-American songbook, the album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart and received wide best-of-year picks from NPR, Rolling Stone and others.
The show takes place during the four-day Latino Village Weekend, a mini-festival of food, music and culture that takes place around the Talent Showcase Stage near the Youth Building. It runs the last four days of the Fair, September 3-6.
