The fine newly repaired smooth roads will take you safely to Mexican blue bird skies and gin green seas, which frame the stage in San Felipe, Mexico. And we heartily welcome Chet Cannon & the Committee back to our friendly blues venue as returning musical artists Chet and the gang are real friends of our Baja Norte event ~ not only because of the wow energy during performance, but also because of the deep humanitarian spirit that is Chet & the Committee.

Audiences know Chet's good time blues and swing rockin' boogie and outrageous connections with the appreciative audiences, will be unforgettable.
More FYI: Chet Cannon is a self described terminal blues fan. Chet once attended 26 blues shows in 29 days and has been diggin' the blues since the 1970's. Young Chet developed his voice from a young age in church, and then singing along with Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley on the radio. Chet & the Committee's performances all around Southern California are the stuff of legend, and the band is a mainstay favorite in the San Diego area. Chet & the Committee have been nominated for prestigious blues awards and their latest blues record aptly is nicely titled, "I'll be down in San Felipe! ~ The Official Bootleg" was nominated for best blues album of 2010. Chet pours his heart and soul into every live show and audiences respond with over the top good vibe, cheers, and dancin' in the aisles, or in San Felipe's case, the warm sand.
The 5th Annual International Blues & Arts Fiesta is the coolest of the west coast blues scene menu. We want you in safe, affordable San Felipe for this party. Not only Chet & the Committee ~ we have a line up that is stellar. Jaw dropping talent! Mexican / American blues rock and roll, Afro-Cuban rhythm, melodic power fusion, and the best and brightest.... all converge at the base of saturated pastel mountains watching the shimmering Sea of Cortez. The San Felipe Lions Club produces this annual event which raises critical funding for local humanitarian work. Local recipients include schools, medical services, eye exam clinics, the new orphanages, and more. Funds go directly to those in need. The energy of the musicians, visual artists, audience, and all our supporters hits a critical mass that day and we celebrate the best in all of us. "Changing Lives Through Music and Art" is the mission of the event and it all happens at the 5th Annual International Blues & Arts Fiesta in San Felipe!
