WELCOME TO CIRCUS MEXICUS

¿Qué es Circus Mexicus? If you’ve been to any concert by RCPM you’ve undoubtedly heard it talked about. Every June, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers pack their ponchos and sandals and head down together to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico to celebrate life through rock-n-roll with their biggest beachfront festival weekend of the year! Whether you’ve followed Roger and P.H. since the days of The Refreshments, or you just recently discovered RCPM, Circus Mexicus is an experience for fans of all ages, veterans or newcomers alike.

It began in 2000 when the recently formed Peacemakers simply visited Rocky Point looking for a place to play.  The Baja Cantina granted them electricity and a bar tab and the 40 or so in attendance witnessed show number 1.  Fast forward 16 years, numerous venues, countless explanations with border guards, swine flus, sunburns and hangovers later, Circus Mexicus continues it's annual fiesta each June.  Peacemakers from 32 States and 7 countries called it home last year.  Some call it RCPM’s “annual convention” others call it their “summer vacation kick off.”  Regardless, everybody agrees it’s a weekend when clocks rotate counterclockwise, music fills the air and people from all walks of life join as one.

Here's what you can expect below, check back often for updates.


VOTED BEST ROCK N ROLL ROAD TRIP BY PHOENIX NEW TIMES, 2009.

SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 101 BUCKET LIST THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE BY PHOENIX MAGAZINE, 2013.

NOMINATED BEST OF MUSIC FESTIVAL BY PHOENIX NEW TIMES, 2015.


THURSDAY june 9, 2016

For those early birds needing a head start on their attitude adjustment, Thursday can be a relaxing day to discover Puerto Penasco before the crowds arrive.  Consider a tequila tasting including Mexican Moonshine Tequilas among others at Banditos or Capone's.  Head over to Old Port or the Malecon to watch the sun set over the Sea of Cortez.  Visit Latitude 31 for a view of the harbor or Sr. Amigos for drinks on the waterfront.  Wrecked at The Reef and Boo Bar are always busy showing whatever sports you're missing from back home. See what the local fisherman brought in that day or leave the cooking to somebody else at one of the many seaside restaurants. 

The music kicks off at sunset at our favorite third world cantina in Cholla Bay, JJ's Cantina.  Four bands will rock the outdoor patio stage with serene water, anchored boats and star filled skies serving as the backdrop.  Cold beer, warm tacos and plenty of tequila set the tone for what's to come the entire weekend.  Admission is included with any pre-purchased Circus Mexicus ticket. 

FRIDAY june 10,2016

For some, the day is yours to do whatever you want. Go shopping in Old Port or the Cholla Bay Mall.  Go snorkeling or para-sailing. Rent a wave runner or an ATV.  Swim, lay out on the beach, or take a boat trip to Bird Island. Golf at nearby courses including 2 Jack Nicklaus Signature designs or read on your beach front patio. 

Most are able to leave their cars parked at their condo and walk over to Banditos when the fun starts around 4:00 with an acoustic set inside.   Doors at the Mexican Moonshine Main Stage open at 6:00, the first of three bands will plug in at 7:00 followed by RCPM, fireworks, surprise guests and who knows what else?  Details can be found at the Line Up tab.

Have you ever seen RCPM from backstage?  This is your opportunity buy purchasing VIP Backstage Passes while supplies last, which not only include admission to both the Friday and Saturday shows, but will get you access to the Peacemaker Lounge and stage deck views just a few feet away and level with all of the bands behind and side stage.  Admission to all other shows throughout the weekend are included.

Still haven't had enough?  An after hour show on the outdoor stage at Banditos will start immediately after RCPM.

SATURDAY june 11, 2o16

Roger Clyne’s annual Rock and Beach Soccer Tournament on the beach in front of the Princesa Resort starts at 8:00...AM that is!  The Princesa is located on the center of Sandy Beach just east of the Sonoran Spa Resort. Over 150 players vie for bragging rights for a year with winners taking home a one of a kind shot glass trophy.   Even more come out to support them, take a warm swim in the Sea of Cortez or master their favorite beach games of inactivity.  Proceeds benefit The Penasco Youth Sports Foundation.  Allow a few minutes for a quick afternoon siesta, water and a well earned shower. 

Then prepare to rock your socks off again!  Night two of Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers is back on the Mexican Moonshine Main Stage including more great bands, fireworks and different RCPM set list from Friday night.

Past Circus Mexicus guests have included  Cracker, Sand Rubies, The Pistoleros, Johnny Hickman, The Black Moods, Cross Canadian Ragweed, The Strolling Bones, Sons of Bill, The Railbenders, Dead Rock West, Shurman, Brian Blush, Angie Stevens, Andy Hersey, Massy Ferguson, Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers, The Jons, The Toluenes, Jim Dalton, Todd Snider, Tramps and Thieves, Elvis Before Noon, Jason Boots and Random Karma. Who knows who’ll show up this year?

The rock will continue to roll into the wee hours with another after hours show at Banditos immediately after RCPM's set.

SUNDAY june 12, 2016

JJ's Cantina plays host to the Mananathon, a day long jam session geared to those who can delay the trip back to reality until Monday.  Bands from the entire weekend will get together on stage all afternoon playing whatever they want and taking turns sitting in with one another.  It's a chance for fans to hang with the bands including RCPM, perhaps find your misplaced keys, get an autograph or maybe find a caravan for the way home.  Plan on showing up just before 11am and get Ceasar to serve you up a pain relieving  Bloody Mary.  Then relax while looking over Cholla Bay where  Roger has penned many of his classics over the years doing exactly the same thing. 

Banditos will cap off the weekend with performances as the sun sets on another Circus Mexicus.

All shows are Rain or Shine and ticket sales are final.  If weather forces a delay in the show, RCPM will make every effort to return and finish the show.

Photography at Circus Mexicus shows is permitted for personal use, not for commercial applications.  Please do not use flash photography after the third song.

JANUARY JAM

In 2008, RCPM challenged themselves to record 8 songs in 8 days in a makeshift Cholla Bay recording studio which eventually became the foundation for the Turbo Ocho album.  They captured the process with an HD video camera and uploaded the highlights daily on the band’s website.  Much of that video is available today on the DVD side of the the Turbo Ocho CD available at peacetimegoods.com.  Excitement to perform those songs coupled with cabin fever fed the idea to announce an impromptu sunset concert on the patio at JJ’s Cantina on the 8th day. With very little notice, a few hundred fans dropped everything and headed for Mexico to hear those songs performed for the first time.

Since then, January Jam at JJ’s has become an annual mainstay on RCPM’s touring calendar.  Response from the greatest rock-n-roll fan base in the world has given RCPM a chance to create another weekend where the rock sizzles while much of the U.S. remains frozen. 

January Jam will take a break in 2016 and we look forward to its return in January, 2017.

All shows are all ages with kids under 14 free accompanied by a paying adult.  Those under 18 must leave the premise immediately following the performance.
