For #Blues lovers For #Bluesmusic lovers…Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Fests returns to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo very soon now and we are still very much a Blues and Blues-rock festival.

#bluesrockmusic The 3 Kings of Blues Tribute Show Is Unique To Our Festival

More about the January 27 & 28 Shows. The second weekend. Two Great Weekends Of Live Rockin’ ‘n a Bluesin’ Not Seen In Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo since…well 2020 when we last had an event.

We’re a hybrid, I know, rock and blues together, the perfect scrambled egg of music we think. We love blues-rock and the blues. And it will always be an important part of our Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Events & Fests

So if you’re a blues or blues-rock lover, and you want a little sun and beach in your life, and some fun in your evening, how can you allow yourself to miss two great nights of the 3 Kings Of Blues Tribute (B.B King, Albert King and Freddie King) January 27 (Zihuatanejo Madana Bar Victor Manjarrez our host) and January 28 (Ixtapa, Villas Paraiso Hotel Villas Paraíso Gomez Ricardo our host

Presented by the Chris Sanchez Blues Band, Chicago-born Chris, steeped in the blues and influenced greatly by the 3 Kings of Blues, as is everyone else who has ever played the blues, shared their 2-night song list with us recently. Awesome list. We can’t wait, and we hope you feel; the same. Did we say they are bringing an added Horns section for their show? Check out one of their rehearsal songs from the Basement.

This is the full song list, 16 songs:


Every day I have the Blues

Sweet sixteen

Rock me baby


The Thrill is gone

Paying the cost to be the boss


Born under a bad sign

Don’t burn down the bridge

As the years go passing by

I’ll play the Blues for you

I’m ready

Kansas City

I’ll be doggone


I’m tore down

She’s a burglar

Pack it up
