Formerly known as "Meeting of the Mindless," is now called

San Felipe Songwriters Festival

Our 1st annual San Felipe Songwriters Festival is co-hosted by Cesar Quirarte, El Dorado's event planner and manager of the Palapa Bar & Grill and the award winning Pavillion restaurant, at Las Caras de Mexico Golf Resort, located within La Ventana Del Mar on the beautiful Sea of Cortez, just 7 miles north of San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico.

We always try to party with a purpose so again this year we'll be raising money for San Felipe's outstanding animal rescue organization, VIVA. Your donations will help provide medicine, qualified veterinary exams and medical attention, spay and neutering, care and adoption for the many indigent animals of San Felipe. We appreciate your support.

Get up close and hang out with the artists

We'll be hanging out at La Palapa and Juanito's Cantina on El Dorado Beach, where you can meet the talented songwriters, listen up close and escape to a life inspired by the sea, good times and that laid-back-and-loving-life attitude that just never gets old. Enjoy authentic local Mexican cuisine and the Baja sun.


Tropical Rock (Or Trop Rock) is a genre of popular music that incorporates elements of rock and roll, country, caribbean, reggae or other musical genres to create a laid-back or escapist state of mind.

Trop Rock may create its tropical or “island vibe” either with tropical or island-like instrumentation and production, or with beach, tropical or “escapist” lyrical themes, or both.
