WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL BLUES & ARTS FIESTA – HISTORY
The San Felipe Lions Club is proud to host the annual Blues & Arts Fiesta, once again at the beautiful La Ventana del Mar Resort at El Dorado Ranch. As the premier fundraising event in Northern Baja, the Blues & Arts Fiesta proceeds directly supports a variety of local charities.
Concert attendees sit on a velvet-green lawn looking out over the legendary Sea of Cortez, while watching world-class musicians, visiting the booths of our esteemed artists, and while enjoying refreshments and great food. The little fishing village of San Felipe comes alive as the local community welcomes our visitors to share in the Friday and Saturday fiestas.
BLUES AND ARTS FIESTA
The mission of the Blues & Arts Fiesta is “Changing Lives Through Music and Art”. This event not only showcases musical talent and artists but is also a joyful celebration of the Lions Club mission.
Over 150 volunteers work hard all year for the sole purpose of helping those less fortunate in our community. Please enjoy the show because every one of us are here at Blues & Arts 2017 to support and encourage cooperation among citizens, by offering unconditional compassion for those less fortunate members of our community. If you see a child get glasses for the first time at a Lions Eye Clinic–you will see why this show is so important.
THE LINE UP
Jade Bennett is a singer-songwriter hailing from Southern California. Her voice is unmistakable and her story is amazing. She’s perfected the art of sounding like herself. No one sounds like Jade Bennett and Jade Bennett sounds like no one else. She has her own story to tell and her own brand of delivery that will absolutely give you the best chills you’ve ever felt. Drawing from personal demons and life-changing trials, her songs breathe new life into the music world in a dark, sultry, smoky soul infused kaleidoscope of aural genius.
An ’80’s move from Louisiana to Los Angeles saw Wright become a session man and “hired gun” touring guitarist. His reputation grew over the next decade doing albums and tours with Mick Fleetwood, Michael Jackson, the Gap Band, Berlin and Spencer Davis.
Wright’s incredibly precise, high energy live performances have brought many a crowd to its feet. Total audience satisfaction is guaranteed with Gregg Wright . . . “King of the Rockin’ Blues!”
The Backwater Blues Band is one of San Diego’s premier Blues Bands ~ performing a broad spectrum of authentic Rock & Blues, Soul Blues, Funk Blues, Originals, Classic Rock Blues, and R&B. As a foremost San Diego band, they have performed everywhere up and down the coast from Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach to world-class events, festivals and international Blues Cruises.
The band members have a long history of playing with some of San Diego’s best Blues Musicians…Johnny Vernazza, Robin Henkel, Charles Burton, Len Rainey and Michele Lundeen…just to mention a few. The band has been honored to support internationally renowned artists such as John Nemeth, “Mighty Mike” Schermer and the late Ike Turner.
With looks to kill and a voice to match Lacy Younger sings songs about life and life’s lessons. Still Wild, the singer, songwriter’s debut CD on Hyena/Big Deal Records was Lacy’s open rockin’ book on just that,..love and surviving the ride. The single, ‘Something You Do’ entered the charts at #52 with a bullet and hit the top 30, staying there for many weeks. Starting fresh in 2011, Lacy decided to collaborate with longtime friend/drummer Danny Campbell (renowned session player) and record an ‘old fashioned’ record.. (san overdubs and autotune). Completed in just a few days, their effort rendered a truly special CD. ‘LIVE, The Way You Like It’ is a great representation of what the artist delivers LIVE and it has been met with rave reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Born in San Diego, CA, she grew up with the sound of the surf and the Stones. “I was always a big Keith Richards/Stones fan, his songwriting and hooky riffs inspired me… loved the B side songs, loved The Faces..”..
We had the pleasure of having RockCats join us for Baja Green Festival last year in San Felipe. Arturo Esquivias Yee is the driving force of RockCat’s his tight style features an electrifying fusion of guitar-based rock, bossa nova, and blues music. Based in San Felipe, this group is a local favorite who perform an extensive repertoire of classic rock and smooth bossa nova songs, just perfect for both listening and dancing audio.
