Rocky Point welcomes back RCPM and their fans for Circus Mexicus!

Dear fans of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers,

It is a pleasure to have you back in our city for yet another Roger Clyne Concert that will strengthen the ties between our people from both the United States and Mexico and other parts of the world.

We have followed over the years the success that this concert represents to our community bothin terms of visitors and the charities that benefit the less fortunate.

This concert coincides, as it did last year, with the Miss Sonora Beauty Contest to be held in Las Palomas where another girl from Mexico could become Miss Universe as it is currently from the State of Jalisco.

We have just had various events such as the Triathlon where we had over 650 participants and over 300 in beach volley ball with great success and Easter Week where we had over 120 thousand visitors with no incidents reported except for minor accidents.

On behalf of Mayor Alejandro Zepeda, we extend you a sincere welcome to our City of Puerto Peñasco where you can rest assured to feel at home and experience the warmth of our people and beautiful weather.

Enjoy your concert, enjoy the beach!!

Donations for hot dogs and soda for the BBQ appreciated. Once again, Friday night at JJ's also features an incredible lineup of music headlined this year by The Hickman-Dalton Gang. Jim and Johnny will be on stage with their guitars late into the evening. And they're bringing a few friends to play with them, including Tony Nascar of The Railbenders, and a certain hot dog server might jump in behind the drums. Other folks playing that night include Jason Boots, Tramps and Thieves and Random Karma.

At stake is a certain soccer-playing lead singer who could miss sound check! All proceeds from the event benefit the Larry Large Foundation. For more than 10 years, the Foundation has contributed over $1 million dollars to the people of Puerto Peñasco. The charity has built homes for families, bathrooms for the elderly, given clothes to families and put computers in schools.

Peacemaker Marketplace

Many of the amazing fans of Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers enjoy creating unique, original merchandise for their fellow Peacemakers.

Management at Peacetime Goods has been trying to find a way to encourage this spirit of creativity and come up with a way for fans to barter or sell their wares with the RCPM stamp of approval.

We’ve decided to set up a Peacemaker Marketplace during Circus Mexicus at JJ’s Cantina during Sunday’s Mañanathon. This will be the time and place for fans who love to make RCPM things to show and sell their goods to others.

There will be a few simple guidelines:

1) A table will be provided at JJ’s Cantina on Sunday June 12th during the Mañanathon. The first 10 people who sign up will be allowed to participate. Those interested can sign up by contacting

2) All sales will be cash only

3) Each Marketplace participant will be required to pay 10% of their total sales as a licensing fee to RCPM. RCPM will then donate all of that money to the Ezperanza Orphanage for this year’s trial run of the Marketplace.

4) Previously licensed goods or copyrighted recordings will not be allowed. In other words, no selling of used RCPM goods or cds. Also, no selling of bootleg audio or video recordings of RCPM or The Refreshments. Our long standing policy of trading bootlegs amongst fans is still permissible on our web pages. If you have questions about your product idea please contact Peacetime Goods.

This will be a on a trial basis this year. Good luck and see you in Mexico!

Mexico Auto Insurance and Ammex


The smell of fish tacos while kicking back next to the Sea of Cortez while drinking a margarita mixed with Mexican Moonshine is right around the corner.

To help get you ready for CMXX, we want to give you a couple of reminders:

1) Make sure your passport or passport card is updated and in order.

2) If you plan on driving in Mexico, make sure you get Mexican auto insurance before you leave.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are happy to be working again this year with Ammex Insurance. They represent the most reputable Mexican insurance companies and have a U.S. phone number for customer service in case you need help filing a claim.

The Spirit of Sonoran Sand Soccer

Hóla Peacemakers!

The time has come again. RCPM is gearing up to host our 20th Circus Mexicus (CMXX)! The weekend of June 10-12 will be full of fun in the sand and sunshine, and rock and roll and revelry under the Moonshine! The festivities begin on Friday evening at JJ’s Cantina for our Hot Dog and a Smile Charity BBQ (to benefit La Esperanza Orphanage), continue on Saturday at Wrecked at the Reef (Rock and Soccer Tourney) and at Chango’s (RCPM Concert) and move back to JJ’s for the Mañanathon on Sunday.

On Saturday, June 11th, we’ll be hosting our second annual Rock and Soccer beach soccer tournament. Last year’s tournament was a blast and we can’t wait to play again. As of this writing, my team, Mexican Moonshine, has reigned for 333 golden, bliss-filled, halcyon days as the sovereign and benevolent victors of last year’s competition and as undisputable Campeones del Mundo. Today, we have 32 days of bragging rights remaining until we must defend our title! We invite you to assemble or join a team and compete for bragging rights for the following year. Bring friends and family to cheer everyone on! It’s all in good fun and for a good cause.
Player registration fee is $30, and each player will receive an Adidas Official Rock and Soccer jersey. Proceeds from team registration and sponsorship will again benefit Rocky Point’s Larry D. Large Foundation (

We’ll be setting up two fields on the beach in front of Wrecked at the Reef Cantina.
Players must be at least 16 years old. Teams will consist of 8 players, will be co-ed (we encourage a 50/50 mix of genders) and must (should) consist of at least 6/2 mix of genders. Matches will be 5-a-side during play, unlimited substitutions, and will consist of 2 fifteen (15) minute periods.
Games will begin on Saturday morning ( with questions) and continue via double elimination until the 2011 Campeones del Mundo emerge as this year’s proud victors. All players from all levels of play are welcome. And though this will be a World Championship tournament, please lead your team’s play with fun, fairness, sportsmanship and safety. We want this to be a long-term, all inclusive, fun event for years to come. There will be a third field there too, for anyone who wishes to get in a friendly game. So come, play, cheer, lounge at a sea-side cantina and be a part of this glorious event!

To register, go to click the Circus Mexicus section and then click on the Rock and Soccer link.

Play on!

Bus trip to Circus Mexicus XX

As we get ready to go down together to celebrate life through rock-n-roll next to the Sea of Cortez for Circus Mexicus XX, we want to let you know about a deal our friends at Peñasco Recreation are offering.

How would you like to let someone else do the driving down to Rocky Point and then avoid the lines getting back across the border on Sunday?

Peñasco Recreation is offering fans a seat on a bus that will pick you up from Four Peaks in Tempe on Friday morning and return Sunday night. That means you will get to attend PH's Hot Dog & A Smile at JJ's featuring The Hickman-Dalton Gang, the main concert by Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers on Saturday night, attend the Mañanathon at JJ's on Sunday and then hop in the commercial bus lane at the border.

The bus will leave Four Peaks at 10 am on Friday, June 10. It will arrive at the Sonoran Sea and Spa at about 2:30 p.m. The bus will then be available to take people to JJ's at 5:30 p.m. and return to the resorts at 11 p.m. (you can always take a 10 minute cab ride if you want to leave earlier or stay longer).
On Sunday, June 12, the bus will head back to JJ's at 11 a.m. and then leave straight from the Mañanathon back to the U.S. at 2 p.m., arriving back at Four Peaks approximately 7 p.m.

The cost for this trip is $135 per person. If you buy four or more tickets, the price drops to $125 per ticket.

Peñasco Recreation can also help book your room at the time of your bus ticket purchase if you are still in need of lodging.

Same rules apply as if you were driving down in your own still need a passport or passport card.

Reservations can be made either by emailing or by calling Russ at 928-203-6180. You can also try his Mexico number at 638-113-4591. Or if you get down to Mexico and have questions, feel free to call. He's happy to help out with any inquiry you have.

He can also answer questions about luggage, which should be kept to two bags and a carry on. A cooler does count as a carry on and needs to be able to fit in your personal space on the bus.

We would also like to know if there is any interest in organizing a second bus from Tucson! If you think you'd be interested in taking a charter bus from Tucson to Rocky Point, please post on our Facebook page.

Travel like a rock star on a tour bus to Rocky Point for Circus Mexicus XX.
