The 2nd Annual Songwriters in Paradise (also known as SIP CABO) came to Cabo on October 3-6. Patrick Davis, the founder of SIP CABO explained, “Our 2nd Annual Songwriters in Paradise Cabo at The Bahia Hotel, SUR Beach House & Bar Esquina was an incredible success with 13 world class songwriters, 100’s of music fans & 4 nights of music at 3 incredible locations! Every one of us cannot wait to get back for SIP CABO in October of 2019!! The outpouring of support SIP CABO received from both the locals, the expats and the tourists was really extraordinary. The crowds this year were double what they were last year & I see no reason to think we will not have even larger crowds next year.” The event included nightly shows by big name songwriters and recording artists including Kristian Bush, Lauren Jenkins, Mark Bryan, Wyatt Durrette, Patrick Davis, Kylie Rae Harris, Tyler Reeve, Johnny Bulford, Channing Wilson, Django Walker, Heidi Raye, and Levi Lowry. “All the songwriters of SIP CABO love coming to Cabo…the restaurants are incredible, the beaches are pristine & the water is perfect…it truly is paradise.” Dates for 2019 will be announced in the coming weeks so stay tuned and get ready to book your trip early. Destino Los Cabos was a proud sponsor of SIP Cabo! @SongsInParadise
