For The News Media April 15

Haven’t Been Rockin’ or Blues Rockin’ Enough? 

The Big Hearts Rock ‘n Blues Online Show, produced in Mexico, will be shown Sunday, April 18 at 6:00 CDTat TequilaBluesRock.com   Many Performers Cancun Region Bound December 2-5, 2021 For The First Mayan Riviera Big Hearts Rock ‘n Blues Fest.


It is over 3 Hours of Music, Free To Watch, To Raise Awareness, And Funds For Street Animal Rescue and Neutering in Mexico.  In addition, a Bonus Segment has been produced as a reward for all Supportive Donors.  It contains a special very good quality “Bootleg Video” not published before of a 50 minute highly entertaining Blues Brothers Tribute Show in Ixtapa-Zihua in January 2020 

The Big Hearts Show is a project of Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion who have been holding live festival and events in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and Mexico City since 2018 and continues the work of their Canadian and Mexican volunteers who organize the music and related events, which support worthy national and local causes in all their activities.  

A large international lineup of high-caliber performers, including many Mexican performers, have come together to help support the Cause.Kal David and Lauri Bono USA, Clay Melton (USA), Niece (USA),  Fonzeca Caja de Pandora Project (Monterrey Mexico), Ernest de Leon y su Banda de Blues (Mexico City, MX)  Mystic Highway,(Canada), The Swamp Shakers (Riga, Latvia) Gregor Hilden & Richie Arndt (Germany) and Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are just some of the featured performers. Many more are involved and can be seen at https://tequilabluesrock.com/lineup  where those who wish to watch the 3 Hour Show can register free of charge to get the viewing information.   

The response from performers and groups around the world was very strong so we scheduled a second big show for May 16, said event organizer, Bob Rempel of Winnipeg Canada & Ixtapa-Zihua, Mexico.  

“We love our big-hearted performers who stepped up”, said Rempel, “and all will be given first consideration when we put together our Big Hearts Live Rock ‘n Blues Event for Cancun Region for December 2-5, 2021, and further events we are planning for Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta, as soon as Covid 19 allows us too.

When we asked why Street Animal Rescue and not some other deserving cause, Rempel continued,  “We’ll certainly support other causes in the future as we have done previously. However, this truly is an important cause in Mexico, and we want to do much more in terms of Neutering, Treatment, and Feeding to give these homeless dogs and cats living on the streets of Mexico a better life. There are reports of over 23 million homeless dogs and cats in Mexico.   We’re based here with our Fests & Events, we enjoy the beaches and fine weather here, we love dogs and cats, we see the love they give back,  so it makes good sense for us to continue to help support Mexico Shelters and Vets with Neutering and Treatment right now,”

Donations can be made at https://donorbox.org/street-animal-rescue-mexico/  and funds go into the Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Animales Angeles Fund to make contributions to Shelters & Vets with Neuterig & Treatment Campaigns.
