From the creators of Circus Mexicus, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers, January Jam is an 11-year-old music festival stretching over three days that brings together popular bands, friends, and fans from across Arizona, Texas, California, Illinois, Minnesota, and beyond!
For 2020, January Jam is set for MLK Weekend, January 17th – 19th!
After the initial idea for the event came out of a post-session recording concert, January Jam has become a platform for several bands particularly from the southwestern US, though its main attraction is the atmosphere of friendship and fellowship that abounds.
In recent years, the music festival weekend has also included the Mexican Moonshine Tequila Golf Classic, bringing together friends in helping to raise additional funds for local charities. While beneficiaries of the yearly donations change from year to year, they are all within the local community.
Throughout January Jam’s lifespan, more and more venues have become staples of the event, including the pioneering “JJ’s Cantina”, Banditos, Las Palomas, Wrecked at the reef, Chango’s, Capone’s, Boo Bar, Xochitl’s, Tekila Bar, and Señor Amigo. Each year also sees more and more musical acts joining in on the fun.
Early January is the perfect time for this beachside music fest, as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers get to unwind from their busy concert schedule in a spot they consider to be like their second home.
For local Mexican nationals in Puerto Peñasco, ticket discounts are available at the door.
