SantanaWays performs the music of master Carlos Santana with heart and soul, the way it's meant to be.
I've been looking for a band that played Santana music for a while now and found Santanaways on Google. Saw they were playing locally at a bar called Tower 13 in Solana Beach. So I rolled on down not knowing what to expect and WOW!! I was blown away on how awesome they are. To hear the music just like Santana plays is amazing!! Benito on the guitar would have Carlos Santana clapping and watching with pride because he is the good. The rest of the band is awesome. Patricio on timbales can really play. I now follow them wherever they play and they will be playing for my 50th birthday party in 3 years!! So if your looking for some great Santana music, come and check them out. You won't be disappointed!!
I first saw SantanaWays at Mr. Peabody's in Encinitas last winter. More than a tribute band, SantanaWays has captured the essence of Santana. If you are a Santana fan you will know that Carlos rarely plays a song the same way twice. And not because he is bored playing Soul Sacrifice again and again, but because he still feels each song deeply and almost creates a new song each time depending on the inspiration. So it goes with SantanaWays. They can play Oye Como Va note for note so you will think you are listening to the album, but more often Benito will play what he feels, channeling Carlos. If you live in San Diego you are very lucky because most top notch bands of this type tour and you only get a chance to see them once a year. SantanaWays is based here and you can imagine yourself living in the Bay area in the 60s and hitching a ride to the Filmore to see your favorite local band. Don't miss them.
