Special thanks to the Baja Blues Fest Organization for inviting us to this very exciting show in Rosarito, Baja California. Lots of great music, good times, beautiful weater, and warm hospitality.
The festivities always kicks off with a hot Friday night with drinking and dancing in the Rosarito Beach Salon Mexicano banquet hall as many of the featured artist come and enjoy playing together in a jam atmosphere much to the delight of the Baja Blues guests.
The next morning, an army of vendors and bartenders begin to prepare their booths for the many festival goers.
The party continues through Sunday afternoon with more jams with the musicians that hang out for one more day of fun and music.
This year’s 2017 music line-up was filled with fun and talented acts starting with San Diego’s Blue Largo, and Leilani & the Lost Ones, Hola Soy Lola from Mexico, The Nick Schnebelen Band from Kansas City, MO, San Diego’s own Backwater Blues band, featuring Mike Schermer, and the Kenny Neal Family Band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
It’s the perfect time of the year to visit Baja and enjoy Blues on the beach and for a great cause. In the past six years, the Baja Blues Fest has raised thousands of dollars to Baja Children’s educayion and well-being while promoting Baja as a safe and fun place to visit.
