BLUES AGAINST HUNGER SOCIETY is an organization dedicated to feeding the hungry through the preservation and promotion of American music known as the blues. Our mission is to produce, help produce, and promote blues music food drive events.

BLUES AGAINST HUNGER SOCIETY began in San Felipe Baja, California on May 9, 2013, when two promoters decided to produce a food drive for the hungry families and elderly of their area. The event was such as success they decided to take it on the road.

BLUES AGAINST HUNGER SOCIETY produces two annual food drive tour designed to reach out to blues musicians, music lovers, and organizations to help feed the hungry within their own communities, the American BREWERS & BLUES and in Mexico BAJA BLUES TOUR.

The first tour was the summer of 2014 with performance food drives in a dozen cities from San Diego, California to Medford, Oregon and raised nearly 4000 lbs of food. In winter 2015, the next tour headed south of the border and covered another 7 cities from San Felipe in northern Baja to Cabo San Lucas in Baja Sur, Mexico. The tour raised another 2700 lbs of food for those Mexican communities. Both tours are currently active.


BLUES AGAINST HUNGER was founded by Sixx & Rachel Pack, both lifetime marketers and promoters from California. After years of promoting the two retired to Baja California Mexico in 2006, by 2008 they were back promoting again, only this time in Mexico. After another 7 years promoting local festivals, and after the great success of a blues food drive, they decided to take the event on the road and created BLUES AGAINST HUNGER.

For the next 7 years, they managed stage production, hosting and musical talent for the event, while the Lions Club managed sponsors, volunteers, ticketing, and concessions. The event is still going strong and has raised enough to build an orphanage and provide eye and medical care for those in need within San Felipe.
