Raul Malo, the former singer and primary songwriter for Grammy-winning band The Mavericks, has stayed busy producing solo material—even as his genre-bending country, Tex-Mex and Latin-tinged group have alternated between bursts of activity and hiatus. Recently, the Miami-born Malo (known for such hits at “Here Comes the Rain” and “Crying Shame”) has struck out on his own. Alone on stage, with just his acoustic guitar and smooth baritone, he has proven he can captivate an audience with the bare-bones power of his songcraft. Alih Jey will open the night with her gliding, rosy vocals and fiery Dominican rhythms.
