PUERTO PEñASCO, Sonora — Bursts of green, red and purple color the dark night sky. Fireworks pop over the bobbing heads of almost 1,800 people gathered from Arizona and around the country. Tonight, there are no political arguments or culture wars. The crowd is united in their allegiance to the music of Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, a band that manufactures smiles as wide as the Mexican border.
Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers are once again the stars of Circus Mexicus, a biannual three-day extravaganza in Rocky Point that draws thousands of the planet’s most dedicated fans.
The fans, known as the Peace Core, are happy to leave their homes, spend their hard-earned money and brave the border during these tense times. Asked what such devotion might mean, Roger Clyne didn’t hesitate: “It means that love trumps fear.”
Meet the band with the devoted following in Sunday’s Arizona Daily Star.
