Today it’s about some of the Music. More Music info manana. Still on our list to tell you about, and we’ll get to it soon: the Artisan’s & Artists Display & Market, the Taco-Tequila-Cerveza Food & Drink Wars (all for fun and satisfied taste buds of course, and the inaugural 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament. More Rock ‘n Run and Beach Games in the future too. A Documentary is in the works, Of course, excellent pro-quality videos of every song performed at the Fest.

As well very important for all of our Volunteers who put their heart and soul and perspiration into the Event The Causes. Who, What we’re helping in 2023. Who the Performers are playing for? Who you are dancing for. Sharing the moments with friends and family. Buying 60-40 Tickets for. (our new and improved 50-50 draw)

Two Show Concepts Below But First Today We Tell You About Two Performers From Canada That Will Join Us. One is a lead guitar-slinging female vocalist from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada who we are proud to present to you as an Emerging Star. Chris Ghidoni. The second is a well-known name in the Calgary and Western Canada Blues Rock Scene. Mike Clark on lead vocals and saxophone. Big Hearts, Big Talent, we’re very pleased to present them to you.

We’ve been telling you about two Show concepts for months already. Both are good enough that you should consider making the trip from Canada and USA or elsewhere in Mexico for them.

For Blues & Blues-Rock Lovers: The 3 Kings Tribute Show: Spread Over 3 Days We Pay Tribute To The Music of Blues Legends, B.B. King, Albert King, and Freddie King with approximately 8 songs from each. Performed by the Chris Sanchez Blues Band of Morelia Mexico. Chris was born and schooled in blues guitar in Chicago, USA. With keys, harmonica, and a 3 piece horns section. And all performers at the Fest will be invited and most welcome to join in on additional jams or collaborations. Folks, the 3 Kings Tribute Show is Our Signature Blues Event For 2023. Worth the trip to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo alone, even if you don’t like great beaches and fun in the sun while it’s cold everywhere else.

For Rock Lovers: The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones Music Battle will delight everyone who loves to sing along and dance. Two bands who truly form a big part of The Music Of Our Lives. It will also be spread over three days of the Festival, it will be presented by our Mexico City supergroup. Joseph Leal, lead vocalist of The Folks will do The Beatles songs, Jagger (stage name) of the Stick Fingers band will do The Rolling Stones songs just like Jagger. Moves like him too. And they have a lot more music to provide us. Adrian Macotela is the lead vocalist and drummer for Desafasados of Mexico City. He will add Creedence vocals, Grand Funk, and many other classic rock songs. Torke Ross is on lead guitar, and he will add lead vocals on 3 Souls in Mind classic Spanish rock songs and on The Doors music and more. Carlos Rodriguez Chavez, like Torke, from 3 Souls In Mind, is on bass guitar.

More to come rock and blues lovers, and future names will be equally as good as all these very talented performers we introduced today. Stay tuned!
