May 14, 2013 – Not too many bands curate their own music festivals, but Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have done so twenty times. To honor that special anniversary of Circus Mexicus, a weekend-long music and good mood festival in Mexico, the band filmed the entire concert as well as behind-scenes and interview footage to release as CIRCUS MEXICUS XX - LIVE IN MEXICO on June 11.
Every June, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers pack their ponchos and sandals and head down together to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico to celebrate life through rock-n-roll with their biggest beachfront festival weekend of the year. Peacemakers of all ages, and from 32 States and 7 countries have attended what some call it RCPM’s “annual convention.” Attendees seem to agree it’s a weekend when clocks rotate counterclockwise, music fills the air and people from all walks of life join as one congregation. Circus Mexicus was voted "Best Rock-n-Roll Road Trip" by the Phoenix New Times and is #11 on Phoenix Magazine's 101 Bucket List for things to do before you die. www.circusmexicus.net.
“This is the first time I've gotten to see our own Mexico concert. It's been a blur up to now. It looks almost as much fun as it actually is! ¡Olé!,” said Roger.
A great example of that, the song “Mexico,” can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/P0HznbqBXUY
LIVE IN MEXICO was executive produced by Gary Smith, produced by Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, and co-produced and directed by Chadwick Fowler.
