! Their mission and goals remain the same this year: To provide a fundraising opportunity for local qualifying Children’s Charities in Baja California and expand the cultural activities of their area to help promote Northern Baja as a safe and fun place to visit. Their hope is to continue to bring North and South Rosarito closer together to share ideas and events so Rosarito becomes a stronger self-supporting municipality. The response to their first five festivals was absolutely tremendous and in turn, they have raised over $55,000 for local Children’s Charities. This is a weekend full of great music, gorgeous scenery, delicious food--all to support a great cause! It's undeniably one experience you won't want to miss!

and if you haven't had your chance to see this acclaimed saxophonist, now's the time! The amazing P-funk Parker has been at it with his legendary sound for time that dates back to the 1960's. That's when Maceo and his drummer brother Melvin climbed on board the James Brown funky soul funk train. It wasn't long before James coined the solo summoning signature, "Maceo, I want you to Blow!". To most musicologists it's the musically fertile group of men from this period of James Brown's band who are recognized as the early pioneers of the modern funk and hip-hop whose sounds we still jump to in the present day.
