Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers: A Legendary Band That Has Made History In Puerto Peñasco

To speak of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers is to speak of many concerts full of love and benefit for Puerto Peñasco. In addition to attracting thousands of followers from the United States and beyond, the band has always sought a way to support those in need in the city with funds raised at their shows.

Roger Clyne, Arizona singer and guitarist from Tempe, continues to return to Puerto Peñasco with ever growing strength, new accompanying bands, and even more followers.

In 2021 – after a year break due to health protocols –  Clyne took the stage on April 23 and 24 with a series of concerts as part of the SOB (South of the Border) Composers Festival. The festival also included national touring songwriters Wes Loper, Erica Sunshine Lee, Mark Mulligan, and Mike Nash playing across several Puerto Peñasco bars.

This was just the beginning, because “Circus Mexicus” is right around the corner! With 21 years of history in Puerto Peñasco, Circus Mexicus 2021 will take place June 10th – 14th. The five days of music and fun will include several experienced bands and enhanced organization, guaranteeing the return of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers is top notch.

For this Circus Mexicus, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers will headline both Friday and Saturday nights, with different set lists on the “Tequila Main Stage” at Banditos. On Friday, they’ll be joined by “RCPM Authority Zero”, which has brought intense reggae beats to stages around the world for 20 years, along with Arizona based “Black Bottom Lighters” opening the show. Cody Canada and The Departed from New Braunfels, TX, plus Jeff Crosby and The Refugees from Northern Idaho fill out Saturday night along with RCPM.

Other Circus Mexicus shows over the same weekend across Puerto Peñasco include: Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts (made up of members from Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), Jason DeVore (Authority Zero), Jesse Valenzuela (Gin Blossoms), The Cole Trains, Jim Dalton, The Jons, Las Calakas, Dalton Domino, Mark Zubia, Sara Robinson Band, Darci Carlson, Drew Cooper, and many more.

Shows will take place at several bar stages in town, including Capone’s, JJ’s Cantina, Chango’s, Wrecked at The Reef, Manny’s Beach Club, Tekila Bar, Boo Bar, Moo Steakhouse and Grill, and Xochitl’s.

Not only is Circus Mexicus one of the events that attracts the most people to Puerto Peñasco, and therefore an important boost for the tourism sector, Roger Clyne has been a charity ambassador for those in need across the city. Part of the funds raised during concerts goes to support local organizations, particularly to help children in vulnerable situations.

You can always see the support these events bring to this city that Roger Clyne and his people love dearly for having welcomed them and setting the stage for their concerts.

Their shows have included winter golf tournaments, beach soccer, and raffles for autographed articles, instruments and other objects to help raise funds to support organizations such as “Esperanza” children’s home, Puerto Peñasco Athletic Youth Foundation, as well as support for the wheelchair basketball team, the Tourism Auxiliary Unit, and the local DIF Municipal scholarship program, among other associations and causes.

For this edition of Circus Mexicus, fans are asked to bring down home and personal hygiene items to drop off at Banditos, and participate in raffles for objects signed by the band, as well as art and jewelry.

The band is also interested in having local people attend their concerts. This is why they offer discounts on tickets for Puerto Peñasco residents who show their ID.
