We here at RCPM Inc. are strong supporters in music education for our youth. Learning to play an instrument provides a child with a more comprehensive education and some studies have shown music education even helps students in other academic areas such as math. And on top of all that, a lot of kids think it's fun! You never know which youngster out there just learning how to play an instrument will be the next Roger Clyne, PH Naffah, Steve Larson or Nick Scropos. The non-profit Arizona group Ear Candy Productions is dedicated to creating, developing and sustaining youth music programs. Part of that effort includes helping put instruments in the hands of children in our schools, camps and other youth organizations. Right now, and running through January 23, Ear Candy will be holding an instrument drive. Got a guitar in your basement that you thought about learning how to play at one time but never got around to it? Donate it and any other new or gently used instrument to Ear Candy so that a child can experience the joy of learning an instrument and the powerful influence of music. Roger is a big supporter of this drive and will be donating some of his own gear. All instruments donated will directly benefit children in YOUR community. For more information on this worthy event and locations where you can donate an instrument, or for information on how you can help even if you don't have an instrument, you can go to http://www.earcandyproductions.org/Instrum...ment-Drive.aspx.

Thanks to all who have been calling radio stations across the country requesting RCPM. We have an updated list for you, with some extra stations added who have been playing Peacemaker music. We'd like to encourage everyone to keep calling, and request "I Speak Your Language." That's the single we'd like to push right now for radio. So if you would, please request that song when calling.
Thank You Peace Core!

Paul Green School of Rock Music Students to Attend Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers “Soundcheck Experience” at the Gothic November 22
(November 5, 2008) Englewood, CO - The internationally renowned Paul Green School of Rock Music and international touring and independent Arizona-based recording artists Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are partnering up for rock music education “Soundcheck Experience” opportunity for young Denver musicians. Songwriter Roger Clyne was of The Refreshments whose 1996 release “Banditos” became a national hit. The Refreshments also wrote and recorded the “King of Hill” TV theme song, which Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers now perform. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers have invited students from the School of Rock to attend a rock music workshop at their soundcheck for their upcoming November 22 show at the Gothic Theatre. Students will be attending the band’s soundcheck as music-industry insiders, and will be offered the opportunity to visit with the band and have a personal Q&A with the band. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers make a stop on their national tour in Denver on November 22 at The Gothic Theater and are initiating a new music-education program as a part of their touring. As seasoned pros, and educated musicians, these veteran performers bring a wealth of experience that they can share with up-and-coming musicians, as well as a passion for educating the next generation of rockers about everything from life on the road, to the creative process, the decision to record as an indie band, how soundchecks work, etc. Students enrolled in the year-round School of Rock program in Denver take lessons and rehearse weekly in preparation for seasonal shows, while learning all about the rock-music business, from playing their instruments to promoting concerts. The school currently has students enrolled from all over the Denver metro region. Students have played concerts focusing on the music of Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Old School Punk and New Wave, and are currently rehearsing the music of Black Sabbath and The Who. The School Of Rock offers beginner programs, summer camps, workshops and clinics as well as ongoing regular music instruction. Guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals are the primary instruments taught at the school, though other instruments are welcome where appropriate. The online brochure and registration information for the School of Rock programs, including the Summer Boot Camp is available at http://www.schoolofrock.com/ About The World Famous School of Rock ...
The Paul Green School of Rock is the original and premier performance-based rock music school in the country for kids 7-18. Founded on Green’s original program of weekly, individualized instruction sessions augmented by rigorous group rehearsals, the Paul Green School of Rock effectively motivates students to practice—driven by frequent performances where they discover that how hard they work leads directly to applause, the most beautiful music of all. Each year, the 30+ School of Rock branches around the country give more than 1,000 concerts at established venues including The Whiskey, BB King’s and Carnegie Hall and at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, the Zappanale in Germany and the first ever SORFest (‘07). The School’s All-Stars have performed with Alice Cooper, Eddie Vedder, Ann Wilson (Heart), Skunk Baxter (Steely Dan), Adrian Belew (Talking Heads/King Crimson), Sting, Billy Idol, Marky Ramone, Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) and Perry Farrell, among others, and have toured with Jon Anderson of YES as his featured back-up band. The organization has already generated an A & E Films documentary, "Rock School," a summer music festival (SORFest), was the apparent inspiration for the Jack Black film “School of Rock”, and has garnered plenty of attention with its rapid growth throughout the country. Concert details: Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers with the Mother Truckers Saturday, November 22 Gothic Theatre 3263 South Broadway, Englewood, CO, 80113 (303) 788-0984 8:00p Tickets only $16 in advance or $18 at the door. Available through www.Ticketmaster.com & www.gothictheatre.com ID required for entry. Those under 16 must be accompanied by a guardian.
For interview or event coverage opportunities please contact Melissa Kaupke with Insight Mgt. (615-758-4588 | email@example.com). Both the band and a representative from the School of Rock are available for interviews.
Hóla Fellow Traveler, Our tour bus refuses to go into reverse. The forward gears are functional, but the possibility of our going backwards has been mechanically eliminated by our trusty steel steed. Now, at the last few venues we’ll be visiting as we wrap up this tour, we have to be very mindful so that we don’t get stuck in a cul-de-sac or a dead-end alley. We’ve only a few days left of a tour that started Labor Day and has taken us coast to coast, north to south, from Anaheim to Boston, from Minneapolis to New Braunfels, TX. As I look at the map, it is now true that every mile we travel shortens the distance between us and home. And it seems that our vehicle intends to keep it that way. All along the way, been blessed with ecstatic crowds, fair weather and safe travels. And now, as the leaves across the land are yellowing and the hay is being harvested, we are once again making our pilgrimage to Rocky Point for one last bask in the sun’s warmth before it begins it’s summer vacation in the Southern Hemisphere. And, evidently, the ghost in our machine is not taking any chances. Yes then, beloved bus, carry us to México!
While so much about our world today seems unstable, economies, ideologies, even the climate, I am very much looking forward to standing before and amongst you, fellow peacemakers, south of our busy-buzzing border, where we can celebrate life through rock and roll, together again, seaside, under the fireworks and moonshine. México is slow to change, time is not money, and she is always a gracious hostess. The exchange rates in sunshine, siestas and cervezas remain unchanged and, as always, very generous. With so much of our outside world in flux, I relish those moments when we peacemakers stand and sing together what is ever inside and unchanging: the Joy of Life, itself. Come then, visit us in Mexico, where a bad hat is a good thing, where a smile bridges the language gap, where siesta is considered productive, and timepieces have been known to revolve counterclockwise. Sí, amigas y amigos, trade your crow’s feet for laugh lines, Mexico beckons we come together and make ourselves at home.
As we bid a bittersweet farewell to another U.S. tour, we thank all of you who welcome and support us along the way. Thanks for being there, whether in Times Square or at an old bowling alley, whether there were 50 or 5000 concertgoers, weekend or weeknight, you all never fail to fill every hall with the highest spirits, the most positive vibrations, and the best medicine in rock and roll! Indeed, no matter how many miles away from Arizona we are, you always make us feel at home.
Ukuleles are easier to keep inside the bus than guitars. They take up very little space and have a charming native laughter in their voice. It’s difficult to walk past one without at least giving it a strum or two. We have a pair on-board, and as you may have seen from some of our videos, we’ve been playing them quite a bit. Accompanying this letter is a short video of P.H. and me strumming a Beatles song (Two of Us) in the back lounge. “We’re on our way home,” rings the chorus. It seems no matter where we go, so long as we’re together, we are at home. And though, to our directionally-fixated tour bus, it may appear as if we’re returning to our beloved desert, in my heart, I’ve felt at home the whole tour.
From somewhere on an American highway October, 2008.

For now, how would you feel about a weekend with RCPM, Massy Ferguson, Tramps and Thieves and more?

There are currently more than 99,500 people on a waiting list in the United States to receive an organ transplant, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Every 12 minutes a new name is added to the waiting list. Every 18 minutes, a person on the list dies because they couldn't find a donor. Through the first half of this year, there were nearly 7,000 organ donations made in the United States, giving others a second chance at life. Sometimes organs were donated to loved ones, while other times the patient was a complete stranger. Regardless, the results were the same: people whose life expectancies were limited got another chance to play catch with their sons and daughters, hold their grandchildren, walk in the mountains or feel the sand between their toes as they stroll along a beach. For 10 years now, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers and all of our fans have celebrated life through rock-n-roll. We all raise a toast each performance and proclaim, "Here's to life!" By becoming an organ donor, the Peace Core community can do more than simply celebrate life, they have the ability to actually save a life. For the tens of thousands of people waiting for a donor, they know they are in a race against time. The odds of finding a donor or having their name come up on the list before it's too late, are small. PH Naffah knows first-hand the frustrations of waiting for a donor. PH's father-in-law is in need of a kidney transplant. All his life, Sheldon Blechman has cared for others. And even in his failing health, Mr. Blechman still continues to provide aid to his family, friends, and community. Mr. Blechman's story, as well as hundreds of others like him, can be found at the website www.matchingdonors.com. The website, which has been featured on CNN, tries to help patients in need of organs get in touch with donors. You can also find out more about organ donation at organdonor.gov. Every state has a place you can register to be an organ donor, and most all states have a place you can declare you're an organ donor on your driver's license. Even if you can't donate an organ, there are other ways to help, such as the Kidney Car program sponsored by the National Kidney Foundation. More information can be found at www.kidney.org. By becoming an organ donor, you have the opportunity to give one of the greatest gifts one can give.
P.H. is bringing the mustard. JJ's will supply the cervezas. Now all we need is you to come up with a cool logo!
Coming up next month during Circus Mexicus weekend, P.H. Naffah will once again host a charity BBQ to benefit Esparanza Para Los Niños. This private, non-profit group provides a home to about 30 orphans. You can find more information at http://www.esperanzaparalosninos.com.
"A Hot Dog & A Smile" will happen Oct. 10 at JJ's Catina. All proceeds go to Esparanza Para Los Niños.
We've taken care of the food and drinks. But what we don't have is a creative design for the event that we can put on a T-shirt. That's why we need you! Are you an artist? Have you ever wanted to be an artist? RCPM wants to see your skills! Whether you're a Monet-in-waiting or a person who never got past color-by-numbers, we invite you to submit your logo suggestion to us.
The design must include the name of the event, "A Hot Dog & A Smile" and the date, Oct. 10, 2008. Other than that, let your creative juices flow. The rest is up to you.
The contest is open to fans of all ages. Entries must be submitted by midnight Sept. 20. That means the night of the 19th going into the morning of the 20th. Not the 21st. All entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced Monday, Sept. 22.
Remember you can still order advance tickets to the Circus Mexicus concert on Oct. 11 right here at www.azpeacemakers.com.
Rockers ROGER CLYNE & THE PEACEMAKERS are inviting their East Coast friends to be part of a very special live recording when the band performs at Mexicali Live Friday night, Sept. 19 in Teaneck, NJ. Tickets are on-sale now for the all-ages show for $15 / $20 day of show.
No strangers to recording live (RCPM’s acclaimed 2008 CD/DVD “VivaCast” release, Turbo Ocho, chronicled the amazing process of producing 8 new songs in 8 days), the band’s electric performance in Teaneck will be captured live and bottled up for years to come, thanks to Wave Distribution, Empirical Labs and Burl Audio.
“I saw a Distressor in the Turbo Ocho video, and reached out to the band through their producer Cliff Norrell to see if there would be any interest in checking out the rest of the gear that Wave Distribution distributes, including the Empirical Labs Lil FrEQ equalizer and FATSO tape simulator, as well as the Burl Audio Analog-to-Digital converters and Mic Pres,” Wave Distribution’s Gil Griffith, whom is sponsoring the event, said.
“I thought it would be great to capture a live RCPM show incorporating all of those products by utilizing my friend Kooster McAllister's Record Plant Remote mobile recording studio. The Record Plant Remote has been involved with Wave Distribution and Empirical Labs since 1996, and both the Distressor and the FATSO have been a part of the R.P.R. signal path for years. On behalf of Empirical Labs and Burl Audio, Wave Distribution is pleased to sponsor the live recording of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers at Mexicali Live.”
Thanks for stopping by and checking out the new website. We're sure you've found there are many great features already available to you. And we're not done yet! New content will continuously be uploaded to give you the complete Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers on-line experience.
If you haven't had a chance to explore everything yet, allow us to give you a brief introduction.
First off, as you grab your box of popcorn, we're sure you've noticed our vintage Cine Mexicano movie-style posters, complete with our own RCPM spin. Like the promotional poster for "It Came From the Sonoran Desert" says, we hope the graphics rock your world.
Want to know when the Peacemakers will be coming to your town? Check out our improved Tour Dates page. And after the show, post comments, reviews, set lists or photos of your RCPM experience. There are now several places you can be a concert reviewer or simply give a shout out to friends you saw at the show. The traditional "Show Reviews" section on the Board (aka, The former Waterin' Hole), is still around. But, you can also visit the "Upcoming" or "Past Shows" sections of the "Tour" page where you now have the option of posting comments about each individual concert.
Have you checked out the "Bio" section yet with new photographs of our compadres guapos? You can find out who has Rage Against the Machine cranked in the tour bus and who's rockin' out to "Dreamweaver."
There are many new fans joining the Peacemaker community and may have common questions, such as wanting to know if there's any meaning behind that starfish-looking petroglyph thingy. We invite you to look at our FAQ's page for the answer.
We here at RCPM are especially excited about the new Media section. It's a very easy to follow guide to all the albums and songs of Roger from Turbo Ocho all the way back to the earliest days of The Refreshments. Wondering what exactly El Capitan is saying during Interstate? Look it up in the lyrics section. There are also videos available at your fingertips ranging from "Goon Squad" to the semi-regular video-diaries the boys have taken while on the road.
As always, Peacetime Goods is still available for all your RCPM swag needs.
And last but not least, The Message Board! In addition to posting about Peacemaker topics that are on your mind, talking about Circus Mexicus and getting on your soap box to share your views and opinions with others, there is now also a place to talk about ways to protect the environment and remain politically active both nationally and in your own community.
Remember, the message board is a place to express your views and share your ideas with others. It's a place where information is exchanged and opinions shared.
However, we would like to add as a gentle reminder that there are still rules on The Board that need to be followed. First off, our board is for fans of all ages. Please try to keep the content as family friendly as possible. And even though something might not be your cup of tea, that doesn't mean someone else might not enjoy it. Do not rip on a fellow Peacemaker that might ask a question you think is RCPM 101. Believe it or not, not everyone has every fact about every band member memorized. And not everyone was fortunate enough to hear the Peacemakers back in 1999. New fans are discovering the band all the time, and we want them to feel as welcome as the old school crowd. A lot of "noobs" are discovering that for the first time that same excitement we all had the first time we heard Honky Tonk Union or even back to Fizzy Fuzzy. Being negative for the sake of being negative won't be tolerated. We're big boys. We can take constructive criticism. But we ask that you say, don't spray, your comments, or simply send your suggestions on how to make the board better to the moderating team. This is a web site for people who love the music of Roger, PH, Steve and Nick.
Thank you again for finding our new web page and contributing to our great community. Remember, the new site is up, but it's still not 100% yet. We invite you to check back regularly as we get all the bells and whistles of our new site up and running.
The fall equinox is just a couple of weeks away, signaling the changes in seasons and life, the days are becoming shorter, the kids are back in school and another year older. The leaves are changing colors, and here in the Sonoran Desert, the monsoon showers that deliver needed rain to the parched soil will soon be ending all the while Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are back on the road and ready to rock in a city near you!
Now showing is the promised new and improved website. We're ready to give you what we think will be a more complete RCPM experience for both veterans and newcomers alike. Grab a bowl of popcorn, tune-in, and enjoy.
The New Orleans show has been canceled due to the city working to get back on its feet following Hurricane Gustav. We're wishing the city our best as it still has several big days ahead, including the return of evacuees back into their homes and restoring power. RCPM is looking forward to returning to New Orleans soon.
Beginning Sept. 9th in North Carolina, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are pleased to share the stage for several shows with Cowboy Mouth, straight from The Big Easy. Don't miss the chance to see two of rock's hardest touring bands under the same roof. It's a promised Rock-N-Roll celebration!
If that wasn't reason enough to get off the couch and make your way to a show, how about the chance to be a part of a live recording! Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers are proud to announce that their show Sept. 19th in Teaneck, New Jersey will be recorded live. Don't miss this chance to become a part of the magic that will be archived forever.
We are just a little over a month away from returning to that dirt lot next to the cantina for Circus Mexicus #17 on Oct. 11th. Tickets are on sale NOW! You can, as always, buy them at the gate. Or avoid the hassle of waiting in line and order today at www.peacetimegoods.com. P.H. Naffah will once again host the charity BBQ "A Hot Dog and A Smile" on Oct. 10th at JJ's Cantina. Come on down a day early for a little extra fun in the sun and hot dogs. All proceeds will go to Esparanza Para Los Niños. Find out more about the orphange here: http://www.esperanzaparalosninos.com/ Are you an artist or an artist at heart? RCPM is going to host an art contest for the October 2008 "A Hot Dog & A Smile," t-shirt beginning NOW. Please email your submission to email@example.com by midnight on September 20th. We will announce the winner on Monday September 22nd! Good Luck!
On Saturday, Seattle's Massy Ferguson will deliver their rockin, alt-country flavor of music before the weekend's main event. Don't forget on Sunday, Roger, PH, Steve, Nick and even the Massy guys will make their way back to JJ's for the Mañanathon, the semi-traditional Hangover Bash complete with discounted Bloody Marys. For exact times of events, stay tuned in!!
One final note, we'd like to give you a heads-up on a special performance Oct. 19 in Atlanta's long running Unplugged in the Park series. RCPM closes out their annual summer concert series with a free show. This will be a full length RCPM performance. Don't miss this chance to see the unique and intimate experience.
But wait, there's more! RCPM will be showing some love to the Northwest in November. Stay tuned for more details soon.
Thank you again for your continued support. And we look forward to seeing you on the road.
Here's to life!
