As you dust off your heavy winter coat, your wool socks and put on several layers of shirts and sweaters as you prepare to head to Flagstaff to ring in the New Year with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, we wonder: doesn't drinking a Mexican Moonshine margarita while watching the sun dip into Cholla Bay sound awfully good right about now?
We think so too!!
It's time to return to everyone's favorite second home, that Third World cantina on the beach next to the Sea of Cortez. It's the fourth annual January Jam at JJ's Cantina in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico on January 29.
Tickets go on sale Sunday!!!
The annual January Jam at JJ's has become one of the most anticipated RCPM concerts of the year. This is a chance for fans to see Roger, PH, Jim and Nick in an intimate and unique concert setting in the place that served as inspiration for many of Roger's most beloved songs.
This show WILL sell out. It has sold out early every year and there have not been any tickets available at the door. In other words, if you want to go, don't delay in getting your tickets!
Let's go down together Peacemakers to eat fish tacos, let our cups overflow under the glow of Mexican Moonshine and rock out to RCPM at JJ's Cantina!
Here's to life!

Roger will be at El Charro, 311 N Court Ave, just down the street from the Rialto from 7:15p to 8:15p on Thursday in Tucson.
Friday, he'll be at the San Felipe Cantina, 103 N Leroux St. in Flagstaff, from 7:30p to 8:30p.
Stop by before the show, grab a drink, say hi to Señor Clyne and tell him to 'break a leg' that night on stage.
Gracias, Peacemakers! We'll see you there!

Hello New Year!
In New York they'll be watching the ball drop. But in Arizona, fans will raise their glasses, watch the clock turn counterclockwise and ring in the new year with two nights of high octane rock-n-roll from Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers.
Get ready to sing Auld Lang Syne and take a cup o' Mexican Moonshine as RCPM gets the New Year's festivities started a night early on Dec. 30 in Tucson before officially ringing in the new year the next night in Flagstaff.
If you still want to ride the Mexican Moonshine Express and let someone else do the driving on Friday, there are a few seats left! Get yours now at www.peacetimegoods.com , before they're gone!
If you already have your seat reserved, here are a few important points you need to remember:
*Wristbands will be handed out Friday after 4 p.m. at Four Peaks Tempe. The bus will leave the restaurant at 5 p.m. sharp! At Four Peaks Scottsdale, wristbands will be handed out at 5:20 p.m. when the bus arrives.
If you want to make sure you're not late and don't miss the bus, we encourage you to get to Four Peaks early. Happy hour prices start at 3 p.m.!
* The bus will drop off and pick up at San Felipe Cantina (where Mexican Moonshine will be flowing!) in Flagstaff, about one block from The Orpheum.
*On the way back home after the show, the party doesn't end! Four Peaks beer will be poured along with contest winner Bill Davis’ margaritas. Food will also be provided. Feel free to bring anything else you’d like such as snacks, water, light beer, etc. Please no glass containers.
*Unless you are contest winner Bill Davis, tickets to the show are NOT included with your bus wristband.
As many of you know, a storm is forecasted to roll through Flagstaff this week but should be done by Friday. The bus has chains if needed and is equipped for snow/ice, but we're remaining optimistic the storm will be over by Friday night. Still, if you're one of those Arizona residents who thinks 50 degrees is cold, you may want to heavily consider bringing a winter coat.
Get ready to two great nights of rock, and take a trip on the Mexican Moonshine Express to ring in the new year with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers in Flagstaff!

Dear Happy and Important Person,
The more seasons I am privileged to enjoy, the more aware I become of how true the wise old maxim “time flies” really is.
This entire year, especially this Holy Day season, has hurried by me. Tomorrow has become yesterday so quickly, it seems that time has added rockets to its wings. At least I’ve found I’m not alone. Everyone around me, young and less young alike, is reeling from the rush.
I’ve been planning to write you a letter for some time now, but between perfecting procrastination and actually trying to be productive, that goal through the hourglass. So, I’ll try to keep this brief.
The main reason for my writing you is to express my gratitude for your attention. Your time is precious. It’s something we all literally “spend.”
I believe it is a fundamental human desire that we all want our time on earth, our actions, our existence, to have meaning.
Remember this question:
“If a tree falls in the forest, and no-one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?”
I answer with a simple, “yes.” (Why would we be so presumptuous as to insist nothing can exist without our observation?)
So then, if a rock band plays on a stage and no one is there to listen, does it make sound? Yes it does. I know. The question that follows, for me, is, “so what?” Does that sound have any meaning? (Does it have purpose or value?)
The simple act of observation is participatory. Once you’re participating, you’re co-creating. And I believe creation has meaning. We don’t always know what that meaning is in the “grand scheme of things,” but with a little intent, we can make our creation DO something; we can direct it. If all that our creation does is to make someone happier in some way, not necessarily for a lifetime, but even for a moment here and there… that is time well spent. It has meaning.
So if a rock band plays on a stage and no one is there to listen, does the music have meaning? If you’re there, the answer is “yes.” If you’ve spent any time with RCPM this year, whether through video, sound recordings, or being at our live shows, I thank you for your time, for your attention. You lend us our purpose, our value, our meaning. That’s what artists, what all humans, I believe, really desire. Gracias.
Time flies. Let it. We can’t stop it, after all. But by participating, by doing something together, we assure that what time leaves in its wake will have some meaning, some significance, even some beauty.
(So much for brevity!)
Peace be with you,
Yes! RCPM will release a new album in early 2011.
Yes! The January Jam at JJ’s is a GO! (1/29/11).
Yes! I will take my favorite bartender’s advice and experiment with champagne and orange juice in order to create the Mexican Moonshine Mimosa by Christmas!

Many exciting things happening between now and the end of the year Peacemakers. Get ready to rock in the New Year with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers.

It's an incredible deal, but space is limited. This offer is open for just 100 people, first come first served. You will be allowed to bring your own food and drinks onto the bus as well. Please no glass bottles. Tickets are on sale now at www.peacetimegoods.com. Due to the nature of this package, all sales are final. There will be no refunds.

He's shared the stage with the likes of Dierks Bentley, Johnny Hickman, Alice Cooper, Kid Rock and Sammy Hagar
But on Dec. 5 at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, RCPM's very own PH Naffah had one of his most memorable performances ever when he shared the stage with some of TV's biggest stars: Muno, Foofa, Brobee and DJ Lance.
It was an unforgettable experience for adults and children alike as PH joined the “Kia Motors Presents Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! There’s a Party in My City” tour in Phoenix.
