Musicians-Bands-Performers:  Tequila Blues & Rock Explosion Events & Festivals International was launched in January 2018 by a group of volunteer organizers who love Mexico. Bob Rempel of Winnipeg/Ixtapa is the chairperson. In 2020 we held our Festival over 5 nights on two weekends and an additional 6 Shows For The Cause following the Festival.

2021 will be our fourth year, and we hope to continue with Festivals & Events in future years as the Events grow from Fan support.

We are inviting you to come to beautiful, friendly Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico, in January (or perhaps at a later time for a special event) when it’s cold almost everywhere.  You would perform for our unique blend of Mexican, Canadian and American visitors and local folks near the beach in the near-perfect sunny climate we offer.   Our live music (and soon comedy and sports) events are always “For The Cause” as well.  It is the Tequila Blues & Rock Events mission.   Our Events bring new performers and new shows to a community to attract maximum interest.

We plan on holding events in other beach communities of Mexico, as well as Mexico City.  Please let us know what communities interest you the most.

We were able to provide a substantial donation to a local Orphanage in Years 1 and 2.  In Year 3 we supported Youth, through our Realizing Potentials fund for local young persons with high potential but barriers in their life, and two Street Animal Rescue projects.  Amigos de Animales works in the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region and Animales Angels MX works in the Mexico City-Toluca region of Mexico.

Tequila Blues Explosion Festival Int. 2, which raised funds for children of  an orphanage near Ixtapa, was held January 10-13, 2019 in Ixtapa, Mexico.  We have posted many videos and photographs from that event on our Facebook page, on this site and on our Tequila Blues & Rock Youtube Channel.  

Our Year III event in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo was held January 10-12, and 17-18, 2020, and all agreed it was our “Best Fest Ever”.

We want to continue to grow and expand in 2021 if possible and make Year 4, “Your Best Fest Ever”, according to the Fans.  We are currently planning on holding the Fest over three Weekends, starting January 15 and ending January 31.  Plus a midweek Show.  Weekend 1 is our “Mexico’s Got Talent Showcase”, with primarily Mexico based performers.  Weekends 2 & 3 will feature different headliners each weekend and some performers who will appear on both weekends.  We will continue to support our Year 3 Causes and also make it a Benefit Fest for local businesses and their employees who suffered from the pandemic while doing our part to support Mexico Tourism Recovery as soon as possible.

Our events are for Performers and Groups with great talent and the proven ability to entertain and move an audience. You know how to engage an audience and help them have fun.

Emerging stars who are ready to headline are most welcome. Equally important to us, and to our fans, it’s for Performers and Groups who want to make a difference in the world and work with us in our “Great Music and Shows for a Great Cause(s)” Mission.

Please contact us through our Facebook festival page, and just let us know you might be interested in performing at a future Tequila Blues & Rock event in Mexico.  Tell us a little more about yourself and your band or group, and we’ll establish our connection, and work on the details. You can send us a direct message over at our Tequila Blues & Rock Facebook page, or if you are sending an EPK, please email it to “
