But what a four day ride—and it just gets better each year! Starting with a great kickoff party at JJ’s Landmark DSC09412 Cantina in Cholla Bay on Thursday June 11, with a lineup of new bands Roger brings each year along with the most popular from years past…and the jamming begins!

Thursday night is the reunion of old friends since hundreds uponSAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC hundreds are loyal fans who return year after year and have made lasting friendships each year. The amiable SAMSUNG CSC atmosphere at JJ’s Cantina sets the pace SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC for this eclectic festival of non-stop rock ‘n’ roll music—really good rock ‘n’ roll music—that goes through a full cycle of fun, camaraderie, SAMSUNG CSC guitars and drums highlighted by the major shows on stage at theSAMSUNG CSC Mexican Moonshine natural SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC amphitheater across from Roger’s Bandito’s Cantina on Sandy Beach Friday and Saturday evenings and ending up on Sunday with the traditionalSAMSUNG CSC“Mañanathon,” an all day jam session back at JJ’s Cantina. We repeat, “What a ride !”

DSC09754That Circus Mexicus gets better each year is an absolute fact that we’ve become accustomed to, and are neverDSC09447 DSC09257 disappointed. This year Roger invited a record 10 bands who grooved and jammed day and night through 26 performances during the four days.  Also a first this year, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers appeared on the Mexican Moonshine Main Stage both Friday and Saturday nights with completely different play lists each night plus three different bands opening forDSC09501 them each night! This year the Mexican Moonshine stage was bigger with more lights and room toDSC09168 jam.


With more lights the crew could get even more creative than their past spectacular light shows, throwing a halo-like glow on the musicians, the entire stage and even transcending the acre of enthusiastic fans cheering the whole colorific extravaganza of lights, fireworks and excited rock and roll music!

The beats didn’t stop even after the concerts as those hardcore SAMSUNG CSC fans rock and roll to the wee hours to music from SAMSUNG CSC bands DSC09778 who are wound up from SAMSUNG CSC the DSC09298 concert and continue their licks and lyrics on the outside stage at Bandito’s.  RCPM fans are always special fun loving folks ready to party, as our photos by Tony Ballesteros and Mark Olszewski clearly illustrate.  If you are not among these photos, please remember that we had nearly 4,000 fans to wade through and not enough space in this blog to post but a small percentage of well over a thousand pics taken!

If you haven’t attended a Circus Mexicus extravaganza yet, put it on your bucket list. In fact, Phoenix Magazine’s 101 Bucket List for things to do before you die listed Circus Mexicus Rock and Roll festival as #11 in their February 2013 issue! See you next June?
