Blues 'n Belize: How It Got Started on Our Little Island

Blues 'n Belize: How It Got Started on Our Little Island

Cap’n Ron, owner of St. George’s Caye Resort, is a music lover and has hosted musicians for house concerts on a number of occasions at his home in Portland, Oregon.  Resort manager Barry is a huge fan of Blues music and spent part of his career (before moving to Belize to manage St. George’s!) working with Grammy-award-winning Blues pianist Pinetop Perkins.

Both Cap'n Ron and Barry felt our private island resort offered a unique and intimate atmosphere for live acoustic music, so after reaching out to some industry connections, we hosted our first Blues 'n Belize with Doug MacLeod and Phil Wiggins in November 2015.  (Read more about the inaugural event: Blues in Belize :: A Private Island Blues Experience)

“My heart was full the entire week, full with the wonderful music of Phil and Doug and their generous teacher spirit, full with the beauty of St. George's Caye, full with the welcoming spirit of the staff and guests, with the other-world beauty of the reef. I must add that my stomach was full with the delicious meals prepared by Ernesto. I believe that we all felt the magic at some point during that special week.”
– Marc P., guest at Blues ‘n Belize 2015

Cap’n Ron is excited to announce our next Blues 'n Belize with
five-time Blues Music Award nominee Fiona Boyes.

At Blues ‘n Belize you get a tropical vacation with superior amenities AND the incredible experience of private “house concerts” with world-class musicians.

Spend your days lounging around our island paradise, enjoying complimentary watersports like kayaking, standup paddle boards, sailing, and swimming. Get a massage in the island spa or join our guides for snorkeling and diving on the Belize Barrier Reef, only a few minutes away by boat. Or take guided tours to the mainland to zip-line, cave-tube, or explore Mayan ruins in the jungle.

No matter how you fill your days, you’ll spend your evenings with a small group of interesting people (new friends!) from around the world – enjoying a delicious dinner on the oceanfront dining porch, then listening to live Blues music with a Belikin beer in your hand (or a drink with an umbrella, if you prefer).

Doesn't get much better than that, does it?!

Beach BBQ

Beach BBQ

It has been our Saturday tradition for the last five years. A favorite of many guests. Actually it's our favorite too. There's just something cool about eating under the moon and starts while watching fire burn.

 

Beach BBQ

While our dinners are normally served over four courses in the dining room - Saturday nights break the mold. Late afternoon you'll notice the guys gathering chairs and placing them in a semi-circle on the

beach.

The grills come out form hiding. The fire wood is placed. And the magic begins.

You'll smell it before its ready. Like mom's home cooking you want just a taste - a peek - a pinch before its ready to be served. If you ask nicely, Ernesto may just give you one.

Beach BBQ is served buffet style. And there is plenty if you want seconds! Grab a plate and choose between the weeks local meat choices, fresh veggies, beans, fresh baked bread and more! Make sure to save room for dessert.

And one weekend a month - when the moon is full - it rises at just the perfect time. The sun has set, the fire is burning - and the beautiful full moon begins to rise. Making Beach BBQ even more awesome.

When booking your trip to St. George's Caye be sure to plan for a Saturday overnight and experience the magic of Beach BBQ. It's a fun and unique offering we all love and enjoy.

Blues in Belize :: A Private Island Blues Experience

Blues in Belize :: A Private Island Blues Experience

Imagine you and your friends sitting out by the beach fire. Guitars and harps in hand. The warm breeze is blowing to the rhythm of your beat. The stars have come out to watch and listen. The moon even rising to the occasion. You stop only momentarily to refuel with warm BBQ off the grill. And the jam continues until the last breath of fire. The next morning with the sunrise you'll tell stories of creative genius and drunken stupidity over coffee and fresh squeezed juice. You'll trade tales of heartbreak and inspired lyrics during breakfast. You'll bathe in the Caribbean Sea for even more inspired lyrics. Imagine no more…

Led by Doug MacLeod and Phil Wiggins - we would like to invite you to the first Blues in Belize Experience -hosted by St. George's Caye Resort. Five sun filled, soul filled, days of music, stories, lessons and lots of Blues love. This intimate gathering has only 30 available spots.
