We Told You About The High Level Of Interest In Our First Weekend’s Shows…Our Oversold Problem Creates New Opportunities For Everyone Ready To Rock

Yesterday we released information to the News Media telling everyone about the high level of interest in the great Show package we have been able to put together for Weekend 1. And after a frantic weekend of ticket selling, by various sellers here imagine our delighted “horror” at first of realizing we had OVERSOLD the Zihuatanejo Madana Bar and Restaurant Show for Saturday night January 21. Small Room…Big Fun. People Get It. Folks Don’t Want To Miss The Best Show-The Best Entertainment Value To Come To Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo This Year.

After a great noon hour selling tickets to the Ixtapa on January 20 and having a good friend of our Fests, and “He’s Gone Loco For The Fans” Sr. Ricardo Gomez Jr. tell me about his plans (see below) for Food and Drink for his venue, Villas Paraiso Hotel and Restaurant in Ixtapa, we are here today with Egg on Our Face About The Oversold Situation (too many ticket sellers selling tickets and a big interest and ticket buying rush over the weekend-we’ll fix it with better tech for next year) to tell you about our plans to make everyone as happy as possible.

-We are officially encouraging anyone with a paid ticket in hand to inform us they will volunteer to go Ixtapa on January 20 to free up seats in Zihua, and just like airlines we will compensate you who have tickets with Zihua on the back, with a free Fest Souvenir Shirt from 2021, or 2020 or a free Fest Souvenir Tequila Shot Glass 2023 with tequila in it to start, or a Free Fest Souvenir Winter Rock and Blues Paradise Coffee Mug 2023. We will offer the same compensation to anyone with Zihua tickets in hand who volunteers to sit in the front section of Madana’s Restaurant and Bar that night during the show where we will create another dance floor and bring in a speaker from the Show sound just behind you. Plus we’ll make sure that at least The I’m A Soulman Brothers will work their way into your area in the front too and entertain you. They are wanderers always with their wireless microphones. And you get to move into the main Room as soon as seats open up.

-And our genial Sr. Gone Loco, Ricard Gomez Jr at Villas Paraiso is offering a great incentive for everyone to Go Ixtapa! Two 200 peso specials. A great all-you-can-eat Buffet Fest Style food offering pasta, chicken wings, pizza, burgers, hot dogs, and similar food for 200 pesos per person. And it gets better folks! An all-inclusive Drinks package for the evening for 200 pesos per person too. Beer, Wine, Tequila. Wow! Best prices ever we think. Upgrades are available too I’m sure. 2 More Great Reasons To Go Ixtapa. And we know Victor Manjerrez of Madana Bar in Zihua is planning a special Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Fest day Menu and great drink prices. 40 peso beers, his everyday price, won’t hurt your pocketbook in any way.

-Who Wants A Repeat Of The Ixtapa Show on January 20 In Zihua Saturday Afternoon? Now we really need to know how many of you would be ready to rock your Saturday afternoon. We’d really love to do this to get more folks to see the Great Entertainment Package we’ve brought together…we are investigating the possibility of a Second Zihua Show, A Saturday Afternoon Matinee, from 1:00 to 5:30 pm. For New Ticket Buyers And Anyone Who Moves Their Ticket From Evening To Afternoon. At the same great venue Madana Bar and Restaurant. Then 6:00 to 11:00 pm for the planned Zihua Show. Who Wants That Option From Us? We Need To Know Today Before Final Decisions Are Made Tonight. Please Whatsapp Text or Call +52 755 101 5989, Please Message Us from our website at Tequilabluesrock.com Or Please Comment Or Message Us In Facebook

Their Vegas Style Germany-based show is a can’t-miss show whether you’re in Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo, Mexico, Canada, or anywhere in the world…Are You Ready To Rock Your Weekend January 20 & 21 Blues Brothers Style?

Reviewers and fans continually rave about these guys. “Professional, funny, non-stop energy, big hearts, good guys, excellent musicians (harmonica, drums, bass guitar, vocals), great music”

Geoff and Chris Dahl, originally of London, Ontario, Canada will be performing their “I’m A Soulman Show” in Ixtapa on January 20 at Villas Paraiso Hotel and Restaurant and In Zihuatanejo on January 21 at Madana Restaurant and Bar.

Geoff and Chris Dahl, “I’m A Soulman” Show

Two nights only. Two different can’t-miss nights. As a special support to our fundraising for Street Animal Rescue, big animal lovers themselves, they have agreed to present two distinct shows with different music each night. Love these guys! Big hearts truly!

Plus we’ve packaged them with three other great rock and blues and r&b acts, plus jams and collaborations by all performers including Geoff and Chris. Charlie Jacobson from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada with Kristell Rodriguez and America Hernandez of Morelia, Mexico performing with him, The Oralia Band, and The Steely Band with Karen Melendez. Both Oralia and Steely Band are from Morelia, Mexico as well. It all starts at 6:00 pm and there is 4.5-5 hours of live music and great fun by international-level performers just here for two nights.

Sharon Ristau of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico, who has seen them two times already, said to us earlier in December this year when we confirmed they were coming back to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and would in fact present two different shows with different music each night, “Best date night, best two dates nights in a row ever” “They do this show almost year-round in big theatres in Germany, she said, and they are real pros. And it’s great fun”

They love Mexico for some downtime and fun like all our other out-of-country performers plus strong animal lovers and supporters of our Street Animal Rescue cause, it’s a natural fit for them to come to Paradise, Mexico, what we call Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, to perform, have fun and support our fundraising Cause.

Part of the big “Stars In Concert Shows” in Germany, their show plays too big crowds almost year-round in the Las Vegas of Germany. A link to their Germany show “Stars in Concert” Website with videos and photos is below. Plus photos and a performance video from Germany as well.

Geoff and Chris Dahl as Blues Brothers

Here’s Geoff and Chris Dahl’s Official Bio as The Soul Brothers-The Blues Brothers Tribute Show

Chris and Geoff Dahl, real brothers from London, Ontario, Canada mastered their craft as bluesmen in the early ’90s while performing and recording with several r&b/blues/pop recording acts including BLACK AVALON (A&M records) CASSANDRA VASIK (Epic records)THE BUSH DOCTORS (A&M records), MELODY CURRANT (Motown/Universal) and the world-famous OLD CHICAGO’S BLUES BAND (Speakeasy Records)!

During this time, the brothers (who both sing and play all instruments including guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and harmonica) shared the stage with some of the world’s top r&b legends including Buddy Guy, BB King, Chicago Pete, Downchild Blues Band, Powder Blues band, The Contours, The Miracles, Martha Reeves Dutch Mason & Jeff Healy to name a few…thus gaining a wealth of on-stage experience and picking up many of the *tricks of the trade* from the masters of the craft!

It was in 1994 that the real brothers first donned the stage gear made famous by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, during an impromptu Halloween performance at the Old Chicago’s blues festival. Following this performance, the brothers never looked back and began working as a much-heralded full-time R&B tribute under the name of THE SOUL BROTHERS! the Ultimate Tribute to BLUES, RHYTHM & BLUES, AND SOUL!

This 2-hour live SOUL BROTHERS show has taken the brothers all over the world performing in blues festivals, arena concerts, and with the D.N.D/U.S.O. SHOW TOURS entertaining the troupes in remote locations throughout the world. They have also performed as an impressive blues brothers tribute during several extended runs with the Canadian-based LEGENDS ALIVE, LEGENDS IN CONCERT USA, and the European-based STARS IN CONCERT tribute show.

In 2005 the brothers teamed up with producer Bernhard Kurz to create a full-on R&B tribute show combining the 70’S magic of bluesmen Dan Aykroyd & John Belushi with the sweet soul sounds of Sam and Dave and the groove and energy of James Brown! This incredible musical comedy called I’m A Soulman! features the Dahl Brothers and musicians from the original Blues Brothers movies, plus active members of *The American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.* This show has performed throughout North America and Europe in theaters, festivals, and concert venues alike.

In 2013, the Soul Brothers, Chris with his 4-octave vocal range and Geoff with his harmonica wizardry, continue to bring the power of the blues to stages around the world and are excited to join the cast of one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, STARS IN CONCERT performing all the hits of legendary r&b recording artists The Blues Brothers, The Isley brothers, Sam and Dave, James Brown, Ray Charles and more.

The Kristel Rodriguez and Friends Project Is Looking Better And Better All The Time For Our Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Fest 2023 During Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Rocks Week January 19-29, 2023

Yesterday we told you about the Kristel Rodriguez and Friends Project for our January 20-29, 2023 Ixtapa Rocks ‘n Blues Rocks Week.

We know Kristel, she knows Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and our Audience, and we highly respect her musicianship and so do other musicians. We mentioned David Gogo and Charlie Jacobson of Canada in that breath. So we had no fear about her bringing musical Friends from Morelia!

Friends like Oralia Band possibly. She mentioned them to us yesterday as the talking about how to best put this together continues. What do you think folks? Wow, this video was very impressive. And we’re not that easily impressed.

We’ll keep talking to Kristel and let you know soon what the final lineup of Friends might look like. But count on it to be rockin’ and lots of fun. An international lineup. And music and performers and show concepts you can’t just go and hear any day you want. Always! That’s who we are!

The Early Elvis & Memphis Era Show: You’ll hear music by Elvis Presley, the King, of course

Charlie Jacobson, November 2022, Edmonton, Alberta Canada

As well you hear some music from those who influenced him: People like Fat Domino and Little Richard. Big Mama Thornton, Big Joe Turner, and wait for it…B.B. King. Perfect for a Blues Fest like ours. Both Elvis and B.B. King grew up in the Tupelo, Mississippi region. More on Elvis’s influences here. Plus performers like Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley who both influenced Elvis and were influenced by him.

You’ll hear some music from the members of the so-called Million Dollar Quartet: Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis

And you’ll hear music from performers of that Era that Elvis influenced:

Performers Like:

Buddy Holly

Roy Orbison

The Everly Brothers

Ricky Nelson

plus Cash, Perkins and Mr. Whole Lot of Shakin’ Going On, Jerry Lee Lewis

Even The Beatles were strongly influenced by Elvis. John Lennon was quoted as saying “Before Elvis there was nothing”

Charlie Jacobson is a unique talent with strong vocals and excellent guitar skills as a sought-after session musician. Plus his own original rock and blues songs. Four albums to his credit so far.

He’s far more than a Tribute impersonator. Charlie puts his own interpretive stamp on each song he performs. And we’ll hear his own material as well. Our Tribute approach lets the performer add some of their fan favorite songs as well to their shows.

We’re very proud to present this unique show that Charlie and we at the Fest have put together, presented for the first time in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Mexico, on January 20 & 21, 2023. And we’re holding January 22 open for a possible sell-out in Zihuatanejo on Saturday night January 21, and your demand for another show.

Here’s Charlie showing off his rockabilly, early Elvis-era, chops very well.

Here’s one of our favorite Elvis songs. We are a Rock and Blues-Rock Fest and this is a perfect fit. And can we just say that the similarities in appearance between early Elvis and Charlie are uncanny? Ladies, if you loved the King, you’re gonna love Prince Charlie!

Geoffrey Dahl and Chris Dahl from Toronto Canada region.
“Best date night, best two dates nights in a row ever”, said Sharon Ristau, partner to Ken Ristau and long-time key volunteers with us. “They do this show almost year-round in big theatres in Germany, she said, and they are real pros. And it’s great fun”

You Asked For More Ticket Purchase Choices And You Asked For Another Online Ticket Sale Venue…We’ve Got Both For You Now

We’ve added two more ticket purchase options for you. Check it out by clicking the link.

Now you can purchase Tickets only for the Events…with the proviso that Package Purchasers always get priority seating and tables in the front and front middle sections of the Venue, A 2-drink purchase or minimum food order purchase per ticket holder is still required, however, so we can support our venue partners and their businesses who are supporting us.

Are You Ready To Rock & Blues Rock? Guarantee Yourself A Seat And Table. Or If You’re So Inclined Guarantee Yourself Your Standing Room. Buy ASAP. As We’ve Told You Before Small Venues Make For More Fun With A Great Vibe, But They Don’t Reward Procrastination. It May Sell Out Early.

And we’ve added another Online Ticket Venue. AllEvents is based in the USA. One more to come. Boletopolis based out of Mexico City. All lead to the same great music and fun each night.

Our Co-Chairs Were Out And About. Ken Ristau is out on a fishing trip, he’s quite the expert by now on fishing here, but he promised to come back with a Great Fishing Trip deal with his recommended Captain and Boat for anyone who buys a Ticket or Passes to one of our 2023 Events. Watch for it! Aury Palacios is out visiting her 97-year-old father past Lazaro and doing some of her own Viva la Vida stuff…the longevity of many Mexicans amazes me. The Tequila and Mezcal maybe?

Wanted to keep moving forward. So off I (Bob Rempel) went to Ricardo’s Friday morning during his busy breakfast period. Got the Banners over there, got them up, and got some great photos of the banners and the venue for you. See the Gallery Below.
