The grammy-award-winning country music band the Mavericks formed in its entirety in the late 80s. The group was founded by singer Raul Malo who met bassist Robert Reynolds in a Florida record store. Paul Deakin, a friend of Reynolds, joined on drums and finally Ben Peeler joined on guitar. They recorded 6 studio albums between 1991 and 2003. 14 singles have charted on the Billboard country charts, their biggest success being "All You Ever Do is Bring Me Down" on which accordionist Flaco Jiménez collaborated. After their last album flopped in the US, the band split up and Malo pursued a solo career.
