Juan G. Rodriguez was born in Tlatenango, Zacatecas, México. Rodriguez’s father and uncles were all musicians whom later inspired him to learn violin at the age of 8. 

 As a child, he never expected to progress this far in his musical career, “Cuando llegue a los Estados Unidos, me di cuenta que quería saber mas. Aprendí poco a poco con ganas de superación.” When he immigrated to the U.

 Continuing his path of success, he later formed an integral part of Grammy Award winning Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano for 26 years, where him along everyone else in the group were recognized by the National Academy of Recorded Arts and Sciences. Currently, Juan G. Rodriguez is the musical director of Mariachi Los Aventureros with whom he has had the opportunity to accompany Beatriz Adriana, Juan Valentin, Graciela Beltran, among others.
