Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino will welcome The Mavericks and Los Lobos to The Events Center stage July 5, 2019. The Events Center, which opened in early 2019, seats 2,000 people and is part of a multi-million dollar renovation.
The Mavericks’ genre-defying music has been connecting with fans for the last three decades, with hits such as “What A Crying Shame” and “All Night Long.” They also took home the American Music Association’s award for Best Duo or Group of the Year in 2015. With such diverse musical abilities, the band is able to seamlessly blend elements of Tex-Mex, Cuban bolero, R&B, blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll.
These multi-faceted artists have also been able to translate their musical talents behind the scenes, founding their own record label Mono Mundo Recordings in 2016. With their newfound independence, they were able to produce their own album, “Brand New Day,” in 2017.
Los Lobos is a Mexican American band with hits such as “La Bamba,” “Too Small Heart” and “Son of the Sun.” The award winning band has taken home a Grammy for Best Mexican American/Tejano Music Performance, as well as a nomination for Best Americana Album. Their dynamic songwriting and eclectic style also shot “La Bamba” to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1987. In recent years, the band released their album “Gates of Gold,” continuing to foster their unique sound with a blend of Tex-Mex, country, folk, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music.
