Event details, per a press release:
“Circus Mexicus Weekend” officially gets underway in Rocky Point on Friday, June 11th at JJ's, the inspiration for many of RCPM's beloved songs. RCPM band members Roger Clyne, PH Naffah, Nick Scropos and Jim Dalton believe you need to give away what you want to receive. After all, every time you give a dollar away, you find two more on the way. In keeping with their tradition of giving back to the community, PH is once again hosting his “Hot Dog & A Smile” charity concert and BBQ with all proceeds to benefit Esperanza Para Los Niños Orphanage (www.esperanzaparalosninos.com). PH will also be collecting any household items to donate to the orphanage (no food donations or perishable items will be accepted). In addition to PH keeping the grill warm all night, The Railbenders, Jason Boots and Random Karma will take the stage and heat the summer night up even more with several hours of country and rock.
Saturday’s festivities kick off with the Rock and Soccer Tournament on the beach next to Sonoran Spa from 10 a.m. — 2 p.m., with a mandatory check-in at 9:30 a.m. at Chango’s. All proceeds benefit the Larry Large Foundation (children’s charities). The main concert event, typically known to be a soul-quenching, four-hour-long marathon of excellent tuneage, will light up the night sky at the sandy lot next to Changos (doors open at 6 p.m.) with Eddie Spaghetti (of the Supersuckers) and the Railbenders at 7 p.m., followed by 3+ hours of high octane, tequila-soaked rock and roll from RCPM at 8 p.m.
On Sunday morning, June 13th, RCPM will host the fan-favorite Mañanathon at JJ’s Cantina with specials all day on Blood Mary’s and Mexican Moonshine. All band members, including opening acts, will make appearances and do autograph signings throughout the afternoon, rounding out what promises to be an exceptional, unforgettable weekend.
