(Tempe, AZ) Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers will kick off their 2020 Tour in Puerto Penasco, Sonora, Mexico at January Jam over MLK Weekend January 17-19, 2020. This will mark the 12th year of the event, which began with an impromptu invite on the band message board to a jam session on the patio of JJ’s Cantina in 2007 featuring new songs from the Turbo Ocho album. The marathon recording session took place in Cholla Bay during the proceeding eight days. A variety of discounted advance purchase tickets are on sale at www.januaryjam.net .
Joining RCPM will be nationally touring artist Cruz Contreras with his band who will play both Friday and Saturday nights. Cruz also fronts The Black Lillies who had a successful debut in Puerto Penasco at Banditos in 2018 in between touring the western United States.
