Desert Jazz Festival coming up!

We’ve got great news for jazz lovers! Puerto Peñasco will be host to the 1st Desert Jazz Festival, to take place November 13th, featuring performances by four jazz groups. Read on for more details!

El Tapeo Wine Bar will be the setting for jazz performances by the Caro Quinteto and HMO Jazz Combo from Hermosillo, as well as Los Vatos Jazz and Levito Swing Trio of Puerto Peñasco. The gala evening will include interpretations of original pieces, jazz fusion, and classic covers to delight all in attendance.

This first Desert Jazz Festival aims mainly to rekindle the jazz culture in Puerto Peñasco, while introducing the genre to those who have yet to appreciate it.

Oscar Acosta, principal event organizer, explained the idea is to promote musical tourism given that Puerto Peñasco welcomes a wide range of tastes. In addition, this creates an event for local residents who enjoy jazz, and above all positions the festival as an international draw to attract new bands in coming years.

For safety and security concerns, in following health protocols during this time of Covid-19, there will be limited capacity and advance reservations are required.  We encourage you to follow the event on social media so you don’t miss out on any important details.It’s worth recalling for over twenty years Puerto Peñasco was home to a jazz festival, bringing together the best of the genre from Northwestern Mexico and southwestern U.S.
