About the Band

This phenomenal 6 piece Latin rock explosion continues to amaze fans wherever they present their celebration of the music of the legendary Carlos Santana. Playing to full houses as diverse as the prestigious London Guitar Show Wembley to theatres and rock festivals in the UK, Europe and even Cuba where as soloist Marcos Rodriguez' performance was described as "a musical bridge between Cuba and Spain" "When they made Carlos Santana someone forgot to break the mould !" said one astonished fan, who himself was veteran of listening to 5 decades of that distinctive Santana guitar tone.

It's all there, from the powerful 4 piece rhythm section that brings the heartbeat of the band that is congas, timbales, drums and bass with a precise understanding of traditional and modern Latin rhythms , to the infectious Cuban piano and haunting Hammond organ wizardry of a truly gifted keyboard maestro. The famous soulful vocal melodies in the native languages of the Americas by the only UK Santana tribute band that boasts Latin members completes what was recently described by Classic Rock Magazine as "One Of The Top 5 Must See Tributes In The UK" Though the tag of Tribute band just doesn't do this group of talented musicians justice.

Guitarist Marcos was recently quoted as saying "Santana live is almost like a religious service. Carlos is the Pope and you can't always get to see him. So when I play I'm just a priest reciting the Gospel. But the message is the same! The audience response at our shows and their messages on our website proves it!! "

Carlos Santana changed the face of Rock Music forever when he stormed Woodstock in 1969 with his own special fusion of rock, Latin, jazz and the music of Africa. Now, at last, a chance to experience the raw emotion of a Santana concert. Created in the spring of the Millennium year by inspirational Spanish guitarist Marcos Rodriguez.

The VivaSantana family consists of talented, dedicated, professional musicians who fully immerse themselves to recreate the moods, sounds and atmosphere of Santana's music with passion, heart, soul and chilling accuracy.

The current line up of musicians have played and toured with such artists as Roger Daltery, Joan Armatrading, Matt Bianco, Jethro Tull, Bad Manners, Desmond Dekker, Yes, Robin Jones and many more.
