Please Note-Our Update:

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo & Puerto Vallarta Fest Events postponed.

With new concerns about the health of our Fans and Performers alike, and the necessary protocols needed to be put in place for a live event of this type, at this time, we have decided to postpone until a later, safer time. When we can have maximum fun much more worry-free. Thank you for your understanding.

Please Note: All of you who purchased reserved seating for the event will have immediate refunds issued.

Great Plans For Street Animal Fundraising By Volunteer Organizers Get Derailed By Heartless Venue Operator: The Live Music Opportunity For Puerto Vallarta February 3-6, 2022: News Release

The Street Animal Rescue Mexico Fundraising Rock ‘n Blues Fest Needs Its Own Last Minute Rescue.

Are You Actively Presenting Live Rock ‘n Blues Music Now? Do You Mind If Your Guests Start Dancing When The Music Gets Rockin’ We Think We Have A Great Music & Event Opportunity For You?

Interested? Let’s Talk And Firm This Up Before The New Year: I’m Bob Rempel, Volunteer Director Of Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Events & Fests. Permanent Resident Status Mexico. From Winnipeg, Canada. Whatsapp or Phone: +52 755 101 5989. Website. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tequilabluesfests and https://www.facebook.com/bobrempel1 (my personal facebook)

Hola!

It’s last-minute we know but still enough time to make this great. If you have a stage and sound and backline equipment (drums, amplifiers, monitors…often your favorite band can supply that and perform with us as well), we have an opportunity for your bar or restaurant for music at no cost to you for the weekend of February 3-6, 2022.

Alternatively, we are looking at the option of performing at open-air venues for the largest possible audience.

Background: We publicly announced a venue in July for our first Puerto Vallarta Event. That verbal agreement seems to have fallen through. Lessons learned and we’ll be smarter next time.

But that creates an opportunity for a new partner for our Tequila Rock ‘n Blues Explosions events.

We have planned our first fundraising rock ‘n blues live music event for Puerto Vallarta for February 3-6, 2022.

We have a great lineup of performers ready to come in and support the fundraising for Street Animal Rescue Mexico, our cause for the 2021-22 winter season. We bring in the “Big Hearts” we call them.

Seventy-five percent of the fundraising from the Events we do in Puerto Vallarta will go to the local organizations like SPCA Puerta Vallarta and others that apply for funding. Primarily for neutering and medical treatment campaigns to existing organizations or veterinarians. The rest of the funds go to projects in other parts of Mexico. We are in the process of making contact with all of them now to create partnerships to work together on this fundraising weekend in P.V.

It starts with a special opening night concert by our headliner Chris Duarte. On Thursday February 3. A legend in blues-rock. Clearly one of the best guitarists in the world. And he “plays his ass off for the fans” as one fan said in a quote. From Austin, Texas. Often compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan. 14 albums. Tours extensively. Humble and a great guy. Perfect for our fest. And then Chris, and his partner Beth Lee, who is coming to Puerto Vallarta as well, will perform throughout our Fest, Electric country rock and soulful country from Beth.

Opening night, Thursday, February 3, Gil Gaidola, lead vocalist and lead guitarist of Mystic Highway, one of Canada’s top Creedence-John Fogerty Tribute Bands, who loves Mexico, who loves animals is ready to perform in Puerto Vallarta or region, as well. At your bar or restaurant. And then throughout the Friday through Sunday Fest as well.

We have Mexican performers as well. We always try to have a good blend. Viri Roots from Mexico City one of Mexico’s best blues voices will be a key part of our Bob Marley Tribute, and Fonzeca CPP Project a four-piece group from Monterrey, Mexico led by Fonzeca Alexander, who has been named one of Mexico’s top male blues voices every year the past 10 years.

In addition to the Bob Marley Tribute, Chris Duarte will help lead our Jimi Hendrix Tribute and Gil Gaidola will lead our Creedence-John Fogerty Tribute. Music that is familiar to the fans and your guests. But each will do their own originals and cover songs throughout the Fest as well so fans will get the best of both worlds.

Plus we wish to feature at least one, possibly two to three local groups and performers. This way your very good and favorite local performer or band can be part of the Fest too. And we will bring in one or two more Mexican or USA performers and announce them by mid-January once we have a Venue firmly in place and we know how the lineup looks.

Please don’t think you have to accept our plan and approach 100% without a chance to talk and us to listen. We are looking to create long-term venue partners in Puerto Vallarta and every other community we go to.

You Supply The Venue And Stage And Are Identified As Our Fundraising Venue Partner In All Communication.

You Supply The Backline (Drums, Lead Guitar Amp, Bass Guitar Amp, Possibly Rhythm Amp), Monitors, Microphones)…The Stage Is Basically Plug and Play For Outside Musicians. As We Said Earlier Often This Can Be Supplied

You Supply Meals And Or Snacks And Drinks To Performers And A Couple Of Volunteers…As Discussed And Agreed On By Text Or Email

You Support The Event Through Promotion And Advertising Through Your Existing Channels And More If Possible.

You Retain All Food And Drinks Revenue, However, We Ask That You Open Your Big Heart Too And Consider A Donation To The Fundraising Based On The Revenues Generated By The Weekend.

We Supply The Musicians, Pay For Their Travel, And Accommodation, And Other Local Expenses. Organize The Performance Lineup And Advertise The Event Online. Your Help In Finding Good Value Accommodation And Meals And Other Perks For Musicians To Make Them Want To Return To Our Events And Your Venue In The Future Is Greatly Appreciated.

We Collect An Agreed On Cover Charge At The Door, Conduct Fundraising Activities And Sell Fundraising Merchandise. Great Music And Lots Of Fun Leads To Successful Fundraising…Our Philosophy.
