Covid Hit Our Fests & Concerts For The Cause Momentum Hard, And Honestly Friends We’re Just Learning To Walk Again. Rebuilding Our Fan Base Is Most Important. Starting Over For 2023. Very Pleased With The Shows and Music We Will Be Presenting, Howerver.
We’re announcing our 2023 lineup and schedule, version 2.0 on Tuesday, November 8. Our official launch day. So we think it’s fitting we take a short look back today to who and what we were and what we wanted to be when we grew up (our vision) when it all began.
It All Started on January 6-8, 2018 In Ixtapa, Mexico With Our One Day Blues & Rock Night. See The Short Highlights Video That Was Assembled Then Below. David Gogo was here then. Why we wanted him back and why it’s fitting he is coming back for The Big Reboot 2023
Then we followed with three other “One Amazing Night” Shows. Chicago-born bluesman Chris Sanchez and his blues-rock band came back to Ixtapa-Zihua. They were with us at the early January show. Fitting that they’re coming back too for 2023 with their special 3 Kings Tribute Show(B.B., Freddie, Albert) The thrill of having them with us is not gone, we say with smiles.
We also had a great night of music in tribute to AC-DC, Led Zeppelin, and Janis Joplin by the Tangerine Band of Mexico with Enrique and Lorena of Mexico City, leading all the tributes, and they have returned many times since, . Then we concluded the winter 2018 season with the event that everyone told us was “Beyond One Amazing Night” A special tribute to The Doors by The Crystal Ship Band of Mexico City. Everyone was very disappointed when the closing notes of L.A. Woman on the encore, signaled the end of the evening.
Enjoy The Fan Videos and Some Photos Of 2018. (Some photos wordmarked as they should be, to Abigail Lovett, our hard-working photographer that year)

The Music Is For The Cause-It’s All About The Children.
With your help, we raised over 80,000 pesos from 3 events in 2018. We tested the idea of great live music through Festivals and Concerts to create more events for everyone in this community and most importantly to help support worthy causes such as the Talita Cumi orphanage. The tests were very successful and we are ready to greatly expand the number of events.
