The annual VIVA La Fiesta celebration tickets off this Thursday with Texas Country Music. This Thursday, May 2nd, don't miss Pecos and The Rooftops along with special guests Slade Coulter, the Huser Brothers, and Yverika at the Ector County Coliseum.

I think everyone wonders how their favorite bands have come up with their names. Ever wonder how Pecos and the Rooftops got their name? It's a pretty cool story. If you don't know the lead singer's name is Pecos Hurely. While attending college in Lubbock Pecos and his friends would somehow also wind up on the roof playing music and that's where the name came from. The guys released their debut single, This Damn Song, in 2019, and in 2021 released their debut album Cabin Fever. Ever since then their fan base and popularity have continued to grow taking them to venues all over the country.

Tickets are onsale now for $20! You can get your tickets HERE, or you can get them at the gate on Thursday.


VIVA La Fiesta is an event held every year in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Not only can you enjoy great live music but there is something for the entire family through the entire grounds of the Ector County Coliseum. The events will run from Thursday through Sunday.
