Pepsi Amphitheater has presented the nationally renowned Arizona talent Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers with special guest Cracker, and tequila tasting to raise the celebratory spirit on Sat., July 4, at 8pm.  Gates open and tequila tasting begins at 6:30pm.

Over the last 17 years, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, the Arizona-based quartet, has delivered vivid lyrics, addictive guitar riffs, and a full-bodied rhythm section on more than a dozen studio and live albums. The Independent marks the group’s newest release and seventh studio effort, which raises a metaphorical glass to the road less traveled and champions the courageous. The Spanish-infused rock album that produced top songs “Ain’t Got the Words For This” and “Right Where We Want ‘Em” debuted at #9 on Billboards Internet Album Sales chart and reached #4 on iTunes Rock chart.

Roger Clyne’s award-winning tequila, Mexican Moonshine, also will make an appearance among the varieties offered at the Tequila Tasting.  Mexican Moonshine Tequila has three varieties: Silver, Reposado and Añjeo and is distilled in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico, boasting many awards including San Francisco World Spirits Competition gold medal, Spirits of Mexico gold medals and Best of the Best award. The distillery uses a clean, sustainable and progressive process that removes impurities from the waste water. Tequila tasting is $20 for 10 half-ounce tastes.
