The Buddy Holly Center and Mouse Shadow Continue Summer Showcase 2023

The Buddy Holly Center’s annual Summer Showcase Concert Series continues Thursday, August 10 with Mouse Shadow!

Mouse Shadow is a nine-piece funk orchestra which performs all original compositions and arrangements in the styles of funk, African funk, and jazz. Based largely on the African styles of Tizita, West African polyrhythm, and East African jazz, as well as the work of acclaimed composers Thad Jones and Duke Ellington, Mouse Shadow presents a music that is an eclectic mix of energetic dance rhythms and jazz moods. Made up of Texas Tech and South Plains College grads and students, as well as local musicians that have served the Lubbock musical community for years, Mouse Shadow is a homegrown orchestra that performs and records in a style that is wholly unique to West Texas.
