Easy listening rock that you will sing along to.  Songs we all love, originally by performers like The Beatles, The Bee Gees, Ricky Nelson, Elvis, Del Shannon, Jim Croce, Michael Pagliaro and many more.  

Check out Gil Gaidola solo on Youtube with the Bee Gees “Gotta Get A Message To You”.

The three are also part of the very popular Creedence Clearwater Revival group/John Fogerty solo in tribute Band, Mystic Highway, which plays throughout Canada and the USA.

Gil, Larry and Paul join us on January 20 and they’ll be a bonus part of our 20th and 21st shows with walkons, in addition to all our First Weekend Headliners, as we build them up to their full Headline status on our special Big Fun Big Fundraising Dinner & Concert Monday, January 22.  

Presenting a 1.5 hour approximately concert style set that features all the great music from Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty, not just the standard few hits that cover bands perform. Plus of course, the very special one-time-only collaborations by Joanna Connor and Chris Duarte, and with other Fest Performers.

The Big Fun Big Fundraising Day & Night January 22, will be a special day for all those who love Animals and want them to have a good life in their senior years too, just like we want for our own parents, and who want to see kids with talent from the local region learn to play rock and blues and jazz and to perform on stage like the pros so they can be future stars on our stages and any stage, and want a community center that can host future Film Festivals and future big or small Events such as our Fest.

(more)

Austin-based guitarist, songwriter, and singer Chris Duarte has often been compared with the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. It’s heady stuff for the musician, who plays a rhythmic style of Texas blues-rock that is at times reminiscent of Vaughan’s sound, and at other times reminiscent of Johnny Winter. The truth is, Duarte has his own sound that draws on elements of jazz, blues, and rock & roll. Duarte is a six-time Blues Music Award nominee and has released 15 albums over the course of his career. His latest album, “Ain’t Giving Up,” was released in April 2023 and has been met with critical acclaim. The album features a mix of blues, rock, and soul, and showcases Duarte’s virtuosic  guitar playing and expressive vocals.

Here’s “Nobody But You” official music video from his latest album.  Great rockabilly sound showing the versatility that we will see on stage.  From Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray to Eddie Van Halen to uniquely Chris, it’s all there in one package.

Here’s “Big Legged Woman” one of Chris’s most popular original songs, at the Dallas International Guitar Festival earlier this year.  https://youtu.be/mH_-23DyWlE?si=YWSWPP88Kocqdlm5

Our Other World Renowned Blues and Rock Guitarist and Vocalist Joanna Connor Is Coming To Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo to be with us from opening night January 19 through the 22nd. She also has 15 recorded albums to her credit, the most recent being “Best of Me” from earlier in 2023

She has earlier agreed with us to take time out of her busy regular gig schedule to be a Big Heart Performer leader in helping us launch our “Better and Better” 3-year plan and major new fundraising campaign for a Multi-Purpose Facility for the communities and region that would house a street animal rescue facility with a focus on senior animals, a music training for talented disadvantaged youth plus a performance stage and films theatre. (See below) for artist renditions of the new Facility for Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo and region that we hope to have all necessary funds in place after our 2026 Events.)

An Artist’s Rendition Of A Possible Future Facility With Offices, Film Theatre, And Shelter In Front, Performance Venue In Back.

All our other great talented performers for 2024 are also coming with equal intensity to support our 2024-2026 campaign and help us build Better and Better Fests that can help make more positive contributions to the community.  

Big Heart Performers, Great Talent you can only see once or a few times, and Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosions in sunny Mexico near the beaches in cold January everywhere else…a perfect combination we feel.

Backgrounder:

The Vision and Action Plan  (download on the website) also outlines other changes and improvements that are scheduled to be made in 2025 and 2026.

Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosions Festival presents classic rock ‘n blues ‘n rockabilly ‘n boogie woogie music from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s primarily, the  Music of our Lives we call it, on the last two weekends of January, for visitors to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo Mexico from everywhere.  The first Fest was held in 2018 and has been held every year in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo since, except for Covid caused shutdowns in 2021 and 2022.  All events have been fundraising events organized by volunteers.  All events have operated with cash flow only from ticket sales and the help of local partners.  No other subsidies or support said Rempel.  “It’s the true test of events like this…Do they want it, If you build it will they come”  For the community impact of events to date, search “community”  on our website https://tequilabluesrock.com. “We were not satisfied that we have done enough for the community, so with “Better and Better Vision and Plan” you see our commitment to creating a new significant impact on this community in the next 3 years and beyond,” stated Rempel.

The new Generations Unite Festival…The Festival for Peace, Love, Understanding, Kindness and Mother Earth (short name: Generations Unite Fest) will offer a wider selection of music that will appeal to a wide variety of folks, including folk-rock, country rock, country, reggae, jazz-rock, pop and more, but always with a fun atmosphere that visitors and locals love for a night or afternoon out.

The Paraiso Society is a small ad hoc group of volunteers from Canada, the USA, and Mexico who love the still-too-hidden paradise of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo and the region whose mission is to create fun, destination-worthy events with entertainment and entertainers from Mexico, Canada, USA and the U.K., that are unique to the area, while supporting local causes such as street animal rescue, youth development, and creating a lasting legacy. The Society has also organized other events in Mexico City in the past, and will continue to be open to establishing similar events in other tourism-focused communities where the right partnerships are available.

Very pleased to welcome Reggie King Sears to Mexico and our blues rock Fest in 2024…the performer that the legendary bluesman Buddy Guy affectionately called “one badass m.f. (on stage)”

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT REGGIE

“This young man is one bad motherf***er (on stage)” Buddy Guy

“One of the top guitarists in the world.” G. Love, G. Love and Special Sauce

“Reggie is the future. If my prayers are answered, I will see him be a big star.” Solomon Burke

“Reggie Sears in the real deal. He has been around long before me and is truly the real deal. Check him out he is amazing.” Christone “Kingfish” Ingram

“A great talent.” Roland Orzabal, Tears For Fears

Reggie at Buddy Guy’s Legend Blues Club in Chicago

Reggie Bio (from the official website: reggiekingsears.com)

Former child prodigy Soul-Blues guitarist, singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist REGGIE KING SEARS is back in 2023 with a new album aptly titled “Back In The Game” that expands on his signature down-home Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Southern Soul sound with deeper Funk and Neo-Soul grooves that will satisfy his fan-base while reaching a larger and younger crowd.

Sears, now 31, has spent most of his life as a professional musician, became a mainstay on the Blues festival circuit and has received praise and earned respect from legends and contemporaries alike.
Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Blues legend Buddy Guy called him a “bad motherf*cker”; Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee Solomon Burke called him “the future” and dubbed him the new “King of Rock’n’Soul”; Noodles (lead guitarist and founding member of 40x platinum band The Offspring) said Reggie is “one of the best Blues guitarists of his generation”; G. Love (G. Love and Special Sauce) has named Sears “one of the top guitarists in the world”; Roland Orzabal (lead singer of multi-million selling Tears For Fears) called Sears a “great talent”; and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram simply called Sears “the real deal”.

Hailing from Fort Lauderdale, FL, Sears is the son of an African American/Native American mother and a Caucasian father and is an example of the melting pot of culture that is South Florida. Raised in a low-income area in Fort Lauderdale’s inner-city has no-doubt informed his tough, soulful Funky Blues sound.

Shortly after playing his first gig on his 12th birthday, Sears met and befriended legendary guitarist Hubert Sumlin who taught and mentored him. Further encouragement from B.B. King who told the young man to “Keep on picking young man and keep this music alive” confirmed that he was on the right track.

Sears paid his dues by touring the South’s so-called Chittlin’ Circuit of ghetto bars, juke joints, and blues festivals Sears became a bona-fide entertainer, capable of dazzling audiences with his guitar skills, exciting them with his soulful vocals, engaging them with his natural stage presence and amazing them with his showmanship.

After a very successful relaunch of the events in 2023, the Paraiso Society organizers decided to commit seriously to “Better and Better Festivals and Events” and create an important Community Legacy.   Our detailed  “Better and Better” Vision and Action Plan for 2024-2026 for the Paraiso Society’s Rockin’ Fun Festivals (available to all for download at (https://tequilabluesrock.com) includes a major new commitment to raising funds to build or renovate a facility for Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo and region, with a target of completion by  2026 end of the year, that will:   

1) create a unique Animal Rescue shelter for the entire region with a special focus on senior dogs and cats and providing them treatment, care, and the quality of life they deserve too;

2) create a special music education program, a “School of Rock and Blues” it could be called, with facilities and equipment and training, and special support for disadvantaged youth and;

3) a Performance Stage with all the necessities that could hold events by the Youth Performers or even our own Festival Events.  Meetings rooms and a Film Theatre for our future Film Festival are also in the plans.

The vision and action plan also states that we are committed to building our local and national Partnerships over the next 3 years.   We are pleased to announce today our first 3-year partnership agreement with the new luxury Luana Suites of Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo  https://luana.mx  This will involve their generous donation of a prize(s) for fundraising, accommodations for future performers, and additional Festival events at their location such as this year’s Meet and Greet-Open House at their location on Friday afternoon January 19.

Partnerships in transportation, accommodations, food and beverage, and tourism both local and national are of particular interest to us so we can support and offer more options to the growing number of tourists and performers that will attend our Events, said Rempel the chairperson.  “Let’s Talk and help build the region,  help build your business and image and help us build better events that will attract more tourists and locals to you and us”, he said.  

Music is truly a major part of the Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo experience for visitors and locals as the Washington Post article said a year or so ago, Bob  Rempel stated. 

“Taking place from January 18-28, 2024, and the last two weekends of future years,  the unofficial Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo Rocks Week with both the Tequila Rock and Blues Explosion Festival and the new Generations Unite Festival (Generations United for Peace, Love, Understanding, Kindness, and Mother Earth)  will help further transform Ixtapa-Zihuataenjo into a vibrant hub of cultural immersion, artistic expression, and joyful festivities.”  “With its rich history and diverse community, and now “Magical” tourist status Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo and region serve as an ideal backdrop for this one-of-a-kind event that embraces the spirit of fun in paradise, with flavors of Mexico everywhere and hearts open widely to do more for the community at the same time”, Rempel stated.

Throughout the festival, attendees will have the opportunity to indulge in a wide array of related unforgettable experiences and moments we call them.  The Better and Better Vision and Action Plan 2024-2026 also highlights several improvements and changes for 2024 Events.  Here are some highlights of what’s new for 2024-2026!

  • There will be an Event that features at least 50 percent Spanish-language rock and blues music.  It will be at our new Oceanside/Beachside Event, Sunday, January 21 in conjunction with our new venue partner; Coco Ixtapa Beach Club of Playa Linda.
