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.
