RCPM Jan Jam postponed then cancelled for 2021

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers try, but eventually decide to cancel January Jam following postponement

Tempe, AZ  With COVID-19 infection rates continually on the rise in Arizona, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have opted to cancel the re-scheduled January Jam dates in Puerto Penasco February 12-14, 2021.  Confused?  So is everybody.

Originally, RCPM postponed it’s annual January Jam held every MLK Weekend a month later to President’s Day Weekend to give rising COVID infection rates in Arizona a chance to die down following the holidays.  Unfortunately, the rates still aren’t at a level the band is comfortable with despite having a plan to create a series of three outdoor shows, seated and spaced with several safety precautions including temperature checks and required face coverings.

RCPM still encourages those in small groups to visit Puerto Penasco anytime. “Puerto Penasco is a community committed to tourism and making guests feel safe and welcome.  Whether it’s President’s Day Weekend or anytime this Spring, grab your mask and sunglasses – and tip a little more generously than you might otherwise.  Our friends down there can use some extra support right now until tourism comes back to normal levels”, according to a band statement.

“Knowing the vulnerability in not only our community in Arizona but in Puerto Penasco as well, we feel we need to avoid playing to large groups at this time”, said Roger Clyne today from his home in Tempe.  He added, “However, we’re going to take this time to double down our efforts for an amazing Circus Mexicus June 10-13, 2021.  We hope you’ll consider joining us then for the Summer kickoff party weekend.”

Tickets to Circus Mexicus are expected to go on sale in early March.  Those interested are encouraged to book accommodations now for the four-day music festival now in its 22nd year.  The band is both excited and optimistic that continued safety measures in both Arizona and Sonora as well as vaccinations in both countries will create a safe environment for everybody to let loose and celebrate the “new, new norm.”  Confused?  Everybody else is too.
