Day 2 - Baja Blues Tour: Ensenada to El Rosario

Day 2 - Ensenada to El Rosario
Breakfast with the group at La Forchetta restaurant about 2 blocks from Hotel Bahia, Lots of questions and storytelling. After B-fast we all climbed into prospective autos off to La Bufadora (blowhole) in Punta Banda. The blowhole is the 2nd largest natural water spout. Then we continued the drive down Hwy 1 along the farming areas of veggies, flowers, and palm trees to the end of the days destination at Hotel Cactus in El Rosario. Click for more Photos.

Day 1 - The Start of the Baja Blues Tour

Day 1 - Baja Blues Tour: San Felipe to Ensenada.
We started all at the most northern Pemex in San Felipe at 7:30am heading to Ensenada with rain in the forecast. But we had a wonderful ride with a few clouds in the sky and the sun shining through our day of sightseeing in downtown Ensenada. Sixx and I shared The 3 Head Plaza, fish market, marina, Papa's & Beer, music water fountain, and the New Malecon with the group. We stayed at Bahia Hotel across from The 3 Head Plaza, it was a wonderful day. As we got ready to relax the rain came, then as we settled into our rooms the music started and then bad karaoke increased in volume, but I will tell you we made it through and did get sleep to be ready for the trek south to El Rosario. The First Baja Blues Against Hunger Jam is in Mulege, Feb. 17, 2018. Click to see more photos...

Stay Connected With Us!

We want you to stay connected with us.
We've found over the years that although Facebook is a "Social Network", it is very impersonal and superficial. Facebook is deliberately trying to show people the content that is most relevant to them, as opposed to surfacing all the content available. We want to communicate with the people we care about and care about us.

That being said... If you want to keep tabs on us or hear about where we are or what we are doing then we ASK YOU TO CONTACT US (sweetsixxduo@gmail.com) with your EMAIL ADDRESS. We will be communicating with our friends, family, and fans through email just like the good ol' days. That way we are speaking directly to you, and you can "reply" and speak directly with us.

Another Good Day!

Another good day today! We might have a dream come true, send us positive thoughts. The Phoenix Dance Conservatory got back to us and want to meet to discuss their working with us on our new opera. Nearly all year we have been working on writing a guitar dance opera. It is the story of a charmed guitar and the lives of the musicians the guitar encounters along the way from 1945 to present day.

SUNDAYS Everyday!

Sunday is the best day of the week. Rachel says every day is Sunday for us and she might be right, but I still like the real deal. Today we made it that much better by calling both our moms just to say "hi" and let them know we love and think of them. Oh yah, and I get to eat bacon guilt free. Today we are just going to play music all day. We are working on some new swing, jazz and jump blues tunes, that we're really diggin'. I'm even learning some new gypsy jazz, which I'm a big fan of. I figure if Django played it with only 2 fingers on his fretting hand, I should have no problem with all 5 fingers :-) In any case, make your Sunday great too. If you want to hear some great music Google Django Reinhardt, you might dig him too. Django and Ernest Ranglin are my two new favorite guitar players.
