The star-studded seaside ambience of Sea Soul Beach Club provided a perfect setting for an evening beach party, and January’s Blues on the Beach extravaganza was a huge success. Over seven hundred Huatulco visitors and residents reveled to the rhythms of some top blues artists on January 18, while they raised money for one of Huatulco’s most-needed nonprofits, Un Nuevo Amanacer (A New Dawn), which provides developmental care and support for disabled children..
For the second Blues on the Beach benefit, coming up on February 22, the performer lineup offers an equally exciting mix of international rhythm and blues and rock blues musicians that you won’t want to miss. From the USA, no one brings the jump-style, jazz saxophone to life quite like Sax Gordon. Tia Carroll engages her audience with a brassy, full-throated delivery that packs the dance floor. Mexico’s own Emiliano Juárez is among the finest blues guitarists in the country, and Quiqué Gómez brings us his show-stopping harmonica all the way from Spain.
Like all Blues on the Beach concerts, the proceeds from this festival all go directly to UNA. Tickets are 400 pesos each, and are available at Giordana’s Delizie Italiana (La Crucecita), Café Juanita (Chahue Marina), Viena Huatulco (Tangolunda), Aventura Mundo (Tangolunda), Xipol (La Crucecita), Resort Real Estate Services (Chahue), and at the door; reserved tables are available. The fun begins at about 8:00 PM and we are looking forward to seeing you there!
