Live, latin-rock improvisational music experience
We recreate the Santana style with proper live latin-rock, creating a very improvisational music experience by making shows as authentic as possible. We use Santana-accurate instruments, amplifiers (top end, very rare PRS guitars and a legendary Mesa Boogie King Snake Santana amp – the same amp that Carlos uses on his gigs, we even have his signature on it 🙂 ) and sound effects. We perform live concert versions of the songs with a lot of extra improvisation, so the songs stay fresh and deliver surprises – giving a fantastic music experience to our listeners at every gig!
Very Santana recreate the guitar master and his band’s live experience, with all the authenticity and uniqueness that made Carlos Santana a living legend musician and composer.The band were all big Santana Fans but Rolly (guitarist) in particular has always had an ambition to perform a complete Santana show. His immense knowledge of Santana, coupled with the passion of a genuine fan meant this new band has a solid foundation from which they could develop.
