Even though Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers traditional Circus Mexicus wasn’t able to take place on the shores of Puerto Peñasco this past June due to Covid-19, that didn’t stop the band’s giving spirit and dedication to the community. During Puerto Peñasco’s stricter city lockdown phase, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers helped promote fundraising and food distribution efforts of Steps of Love (affiliated with the local organization AIM Peñasco), while guitarist Jim Dalton dedicated one of his online streaming Borracho Sunday gigs to the organization.
Once travelers were able to more easily visit Puerto Peñasco again, RCPM promoter Greg Ross met with Imelda Zamudio, Director of the Municipal Office on Integral Family Development (DIF) to present a welcome donation to boost the DIF’s scholarship program, which continues to support a number of students through the pandemic. In addition, RCPM donated boots and other needed supplies to the local Tourism Auxiliary Unit, with whom they’ve grown a strong relationship given the TAU’s role in helping to make sure concert goers always have a safe, fun time.
For all of us looking for a Mexican Moonshine and desert rock fix, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers will be making their return to Puerto Peñasco this September after having worked with Puerto Peñasco’s city leaders to develop a reduced capacity event that will not only include current protocols for bars and restaurants, but also for larger spaces, providing a safe yet fun atmosphere while preventing the spread of COVID-19. Show times, venues and who’s playing will be posted on the Circus Mexicus website and RCPM’s social media pages. Tickets to go on sale Aug. 1st.
