I'm 67 and a long time worshiper of Carlos Santana and had already faced that I would probably never hear them again in my lifetime. They were my baby's favorite band in her young days as well. To my surprise, we received tickets to go see a Santana tribute band in Biloxi, Ms. We didn't get our hopes up for them to be any great deal, as we have seen numerous tribute bands in the past with less than great outcomes. Well, let me tell you.... We were totally blown away by a performance from Jose Madrigal and his band. They walked around shaking hands in the crowd before the show which showed us a personal touch you don't often see. These guys and gal put on a show that far surpassed anything I have ever heard Carlos do!! They cranked it up to full speed and let it out in style!! They never missed a beat and all the band members were enjoying what they were doing so much, and it showed!! Everyone there have talents you will only believe once you have seen it!! It took us back in time, back to the days of Woodstock and beyond. It actually brought tears to our eyes more than once. Jose looks almost exactly like Carlos. It was wild, the trip they took us on last night. We have already been looking at their schedules to try and hook up for more. You will NOT be disappointed and that's a guarantee!!
