The Buddy Holly Center and Mojave Sol Continue Summer Showcase 2023

The Buddy Holly Center’s annual Summer Showcase Concert Series continues Thursday, June 29 with Mojave Sol!

Mojave Sol is an original Rock band that brings many styles of music from rock to funk and in between. Formed by guitarist John Rodriguez and bassist Marin Ramos the two became inseparable and a powerhouse that was showing no signs of stopping. They later added Metal drummer Joe Perez and singer/songwriter Steve Vasquez on vocals. Together Mojave Sol was finally on the right track to bringing their music to life with songs that speak the truth about everyday life. Songs like Judas RoadBetter Daysand All the Reasons are just the tip of the iceberg that are fan favorites.

Mojave Sol has been on the underground scene for a few years and have made a mark on the Lubbock scene and surrounding areas. “Our music has inspired many and will continue to generate that inspiration for many years to come,” said front man Steve Vasquez who joined the band in 2014.
