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.

Amigos de Animales in Barra Potosi Gets Support From Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events & Fests from our January 2020 Events. Plans call for continued future support for Amigos from future Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events in Ixtapa-Zihua.
In late March we announced the funding contributions we had made following our Events in Ixtapa-Zihua from January to March, 2020.
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.
We live in uncertain times but our message to Stasya Briggs, the inspirational founder of Amigos de Animales was one of hope for us, and our future events, with continued support for Amigos if possible, as well as for the Animales Angels MX animal rescue project by Natalia Ruiz Gomez, in central Mexico where many of our performers and fans are based.
You’re A Big Name In The Entertainment World But You’ve Got A Big Heart And A Love For Mexico. A Few Weekend Days In Mexico In Mid To Late January Is All We Ask Of You. More If You Want
We’re Looking For Headliner Performers Worldwide Who Want To Support Mexico Tourism Recovery And Support Local Business & Employees Who Were Blindsided By The Pandemic. You Have Ties To Mexico, You Love The Country, The Beaches, The Warm Weather, The Cold Drinks. We Are Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Fest & Events And Our 4th Annual Fest in January 2021 Seems Like A Perfect Time To Kick Out The Jams And Sing “We’re All Going To Mexico” (Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana)
We’re very hopeful, many positive signs starting to show, so we’re preparing plans now for an “Isolate No More Celebration”…an even bigger Explosion of Rock ‘n Blues (n’ Jazz ‘n Reggae ‘n Country Rock ‘n More) than we’ve ever had before, to coincide with the dates of our 2021 Tequila Blues ‘n Rock Explosion Festival # 4 in January in Ixtapa-Zihua, Mexico.
We want to be ready to kickstart life back to more normal ways if we can Conquer Covid-19 in the next months. There are many hurt by it, many to thank who were on the front lines. We want to do our part. Our health care professionals and first responders have put their lives on the line for us every day, the local businesses we loved to frequent have closed or operated on a shoestring, and employees have lost their jobs or had greatly reduced income.
We’ve Got Some Excellent Out-of-Town Performers Coming On February 28 & 29, March 6 & 7 and March 13 & 14. 2 Groups from Mexico City, One from Morelia. Morelia with 10 performers to be exact. It’s our Rock ‘n Blues Showcase En Vivo on March 6 & 7. Three great unique sets. Festival sets.
All are coming with full bands, and a-rockin’ uptempo live concert-style performance we love at Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events. All Shows at Villas Paraiso Hotel & Rock Bar in Ixtapa.
Pre-approved music from Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events. We’ve had two groups before and we know how well folks responded to them two or three years ago. One is new to us here in Ixtapa, but has a great frontman and vocalist, all are excellent musicians and are great folks that want to support our fundraising, as all of them do, and we are confident will not disappoint in any way.
We Present The Event Posters Below. Please Don’t Hesitate To Share With Friends Who Like Some Rock in their Music! We’ve Got That For Them.
