There has been quite a buzz going around lately about the announcement of an upcoming event of grand proportion in Rocky Point. If this event happens, it will be a first for this area and can make a huge positive impact on our little resort town.
I have seen several articles, and social media is going crazy about the event as if it is already a sure thing. As much as I want to believe it, I would say that I am cautiously optimistic. It seems like a pretty big order in such a short time, but who knows?
Although there has been no “official” announcement of the artists who will perform, here is a list that has been going around:
SANTANA, STEVIE WONDER, BOB DYLAN, CROSBY, STILLS & NASH, VAN MORRISON, AEROSMITH, JAMES TAYLOR & CAROL KING, LIONEL RICHIE, THE BEACHBOYS, EARTH, WIND & FIRE, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS.
PROPOSED ADDITIONAL PERFORMING ARTISTS:
DON HENLEY, GLENN FREY, STEELY DAN, JOURNEY, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS, PAUL SHAFFER & CBS ORCH, MICHAEL MC DONALD, BLONDIE, STEVE MILLER BAND, BOZZ SCAGGS, JOE WALSH, PETER FRAMPTON, TONY BENNETT, DIONNE WARWICK, SERGIO MENDEZ, HERBIE HANCOCK, GEORGE BENSON, DAVID SANBORNE, BOB JAMES, SMOKEY ROBINSON, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, THE TEMPTATIONS, TOWER OF POWER, VINCE GILL, REBA MC ENTIRE, WILLIE NELSON, RANDY TRAVIS, LYLE LOVETT BILL COSBY, CHEECH & CHONG, JAY LENO, GEORGE LOPEZ, EDDIE MURPHY, DAN AYKROYD, BILLY CRYSTAL, BILL MURRAY, CHEVY CHASE, ROBIN WILLIAMS, ROSEANNE BARR, GALLAGHER, ELLEN DE GENERES.
Sounds pretty ambitious, doesn’t it? In any case, here is the headline from their press release. The link to the article can be found by Googling OCV Puerto Peñasco-Boomer Fest Days and their website is www.boomerfestdays.com. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and do everything that I can to help it to happen. Only time will tell.
“Boomer Fest Days Featuring 24 Music Headliners and Comedians from the 60s, 70s, and 80s will Bring Multimillion Dollar Infusion to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico” (Really, really hope so!)
