Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers: Circus Mexicus 2009

Mark your calendars, make your plans, get your passport or passport card in order and get ready for Puerto Peñasco's favorite band! Tickets are now on sale for Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers' Circus Mexicus, scheduled for June 6, 2009.

As RCPM puts it: "It's time again to start thinking about orange sunsets sinking into the bay, taco stands and Mexican Moonshine. Start making your travel plans now for the biggest RCPM concert event of the year... Circus Mexicus 2009."

Sponsored this year by Chango's Rocky Point Bar & Grill, the show will be in a lot near the Sonoran Sea and Sonoran Spa resorts, and the entrance to Las Palmas, between the ocean and Sandy Beach Road and near Chango's. You can purchase your tickets for $28 through RCPM's website at OR you can wait until the day of the show and pay $30. Don't wait... ;-)

For those of you not in the know, well then you just don't KNOW what you've been missing. Read on to find out, then visit the band's website to hear some of their music.

This year RCPM welcomes Dead Rock West, from Los Angeles, to the opening slot (7pm) on Saturday night. This intense and mysteriouis five-member Americana band blends roots rock melodies with a punk rock attitude. You can find out more about them at

NOTE: Band member PH Naffah will be at JJ's Cantina on Friday, June 5 for his annual Hot Dog and a Smile charity event to raise money for the children of Esparanza para los Niños. Let PH grill up a hot dog for you, and then sit back and relax with other fans while enjoying live music courtesy of Colorado's Best Country band The Railbenders, featuring RCPM's Jim Dalton. For more info on JD's outlaw country outfit, go to Then, with the music still ringing in your ears from Saturday's concert, return to JJ's on Sunday for Bloody Marys during the 2009 Mañanathon.

RCPM is a rock band from Tempe, Arizona, USA. The band is typically referred to by the fans as "The Peacemakers" or by the abbreviation "RCPM", and you can join the Peace Core. The Peacemakers' music is known to cross genres, with earlier songs showing a more Country influence, and more recent songs sounding more like a modern pop song with a Reggae/South of the Border influence.

Twice a year, a concert is held in Rocky Point/Puerto Peñasco for what is called "Circus Mexicus". Circus Mexicus features a 2 set concert that is likely to last as long as 4 hours. The following morning an unofficial "hangover bash" (the Mañanathon) is held at JJ's Cantina in nearby Cholla Bay where band members have been known to mingle with the fans and sign autographs.

Current members of the band are:
  • Roger Clyne – lead vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica (1998–present)
  • Jim Dalton – lead guitar, backing vocals (2009-present)
  • Nick Scropos – bass, backing vocals (1998, 2004–present)
  • Paul "P.H." Naffah – drums, percussion (1998–present)

June 6, 2009. Make your reservations and be prepared for a rocking good time!
