Updating You About Our Support Of Mexico Causes & People. March 2020 to September 2020. Our Report To The Community And Particularly Our Loyal Fans And Donors About Our Support Of the Community.
We Are Fully Committed To Our Brand Tag Lines: Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Festival & Events: Always For Great Causes, Always For Fun, Always For Great Live Music In The Warmth Near The Beach.
We Want To Do More, We Know We Can Do More. With Your Support And Assistance.
Why We Continue To Plan For 2021 & 2022 And Continue To Build Our Live International Rock ‘n Blues Music Festival And Associated Events In Mexico So We Can Increase Our Support For Local Causes and Benefit Local Businesses And Their Employees.
Our Current Total Of Contributions To The Community From January 1998 To Today After Funding All Costs Of Staging The Festival Through Cash Flow Is 170,390 pesos.
An Additional Donation of 5, 000 pesos Was Made In Early April To The Claudio Bigotes Memorial Animal Rescue Shelter In Toluca/Mexico City For Special Veterinary Treatment Needed.
From Funds Raised During The 2020 January To March Events As Reported In Our March 2020 Report To The Community, (See Below) We Contributed 12,200 pesos to Amigos de Animales of Barra Potosi, $10,730 pesos to the Claudio Bigotes Memorial Animal Rescue Shelter, and 3,000 pesos to Vicente Contreras, our 14-year-old guitar prodigy, for continued training in guitar from our Realizing Potentials Fund. There is a further pledge to Vicente of another 3,000 pesos following the successful completion of phase 1 of his new training.
And then Covid-19 struck. Many performer friends of our Festival, suddenly were unable to perform live in public for payment or tips. We made an “executive decision” in late April to reallocate 9, 000 pesos from our Realizing Potentials Fund to help, in a small, but meaningful way still we felt, and provide support three Mexican rock ‘n blues groups who have always given our Cause Fests their time and performance without demands for payment.
Now we are looking forward to January 2021 and 2022. In addition to continuing to support our 2020 Street Animal Rescue organizations and the Realizing Potentials Fund, we also wish to support Local Businesses and their Employees who were devastated by Covid 19 and help kickstart Mexico Tourism Recovery.
You will see some interesting announcements soon on our new plans to support both Local Business and their Employees and Mexico Tourism Recovery overall while continuing support for our ongoing Causes.
As always, we sincerely welcome the Feedback and Suggestions of our Fans And Past Donors.

Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events supports Natalia Ruiz Gomez’s Claudio Bigotes Animal Rescue Shelter located in the Mexico City-Toluca region of Mexico. We have many fans and music performers from there and Natalia loves our music as much as anyone.
Just recently she was contacted about 9 Puppies that we found in an abandoned building. She couldn’t say no. Knowing her we wouldn’t have expected that. Please let’s Come Together folks and help the Puppies with a great Foster home, help Natalia with a big problem with no room in her small shelter for the puppies. It’s a perfect time for love and friendship and emotional support! You can contact Natalia on Facebook @nataliamorrison or contact us so we can alert her to your willingness to help now.

We are pleased to report today that Amigos de Animales (amigosdeanimales.org) of Barra Potosi, has received their full contribution pledged from the January 2020 Fest.

The 2020 Tequila Blues & Rock Events for 2020 January to March are now concluded.

View the Music Of 2020 In Video Here. Nearly 30 Performances And Growing.
We are pleased to report, that with the support of our music and fun-loving fans, we were able to donate to two animal rescue organizations, Amigos de Animales of Barra Potosi, MX and Animales Angeles MX of Mexico City/Toluca, our 2020 Causes, and create two funds, the Realizing Potentials Fund for young people, typically early to mid-teens, and the Birthday/Navidad Smiles Fund for younger children.
A total of $40,300 pesos was raised at the January Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Festival III and the February and March Blues & Rock Weekend Shows for the community.
Fans directly donated $9,500 pesos at the events, with the remainder coming from the Events & Organizers.
This brings the total donated to the Ixtapa-Zihua community to $165,390 pesos since January 2018, when Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events & Fests held its first event in Ixtapa-Zihua.
We are also pleased to report that a donation of $12,200 pesos in total will be made to Amigos de Animales and Stasya Briggs, the founder and project operator, with the first portion of that donation made on March 26. The remainder to be made in late April. The Animales Angels Project, founded by Natalia Ruiz Gomez, has received $10,730 pesos to date, to help with their ongoing shelter and rescue expenses in the Toluca/Mexico City region.
Additionally, the allocation of $6,000 pesos, with possible additional funding, has been made from the Realizing Potentials Fund to 14-year-old local guitar prodigy, Vicente Contreras for specific approved guitar instruction and equipment that can help take his talent to the next level of accomplishment. The funds will be paid out to cover approved training expenses, once the training and development plan details are in place.
The remaining funds, approximately 10,750 pesos, will be available in reserve in the event that our 2020 Causes require additional support or additional needs and requests from the Realizing Potentials project or Birthday/Navidad Smiles are received. Funds may also be allocated to our Mexico’s Got Talent Showcase project for the showcase and development of youth amateur talent from this part of Mexico, currently planned for late 2020 in Ixtapa.
