Let’s go Down Together! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by RCPM January Jam

Among the many delights January has to offer, for the past ten years Rocky Point has been home to a weekend of rock ‘n roll. This year is no different and the city shores are ready to JAM! What first began a decade ago with Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers doing their thing on the beach after holing up for a week to record in a seaside studio and then taking to the friendly stage of JJ’s Cantina, January Jam has become an annual trek for folks who now fill a variety of venues across our shores. It’s like a prelude to June’s even grander Circus “so-much-more-than-a-concert-weekend” Mexicus!  Sorry, was imagining warmer temps for a second there … January also means chili cook-off time in the Mirador, and of course planning for the rest of the year!  Let’s get to it and run down the weekend!
