Soul of Santana, the ultimate homage to guitar supremo Carlos Santana and his band, return to Broadstairs Pavilion on Friday, July 28.
Regarded as one of the UK’s best tribute acts, Soul of Santana are renowned for meticulously crafted instrumentals and tight arrangements. With an array of styles and a mixture of musical genres, they have perfected the legacy of Latin, rock and pop classics that made the band Santana a true icon of classic rock.
The show encompasses nearly five decades of legendary music and channels the spirit of Santana and his band at their very best. The set includes the exultant heights of famous hits as ‘Smooth’, ‘Evil Ways’, ‘She’s Not There’, and ‘Soul Sacrifice’, to the cathartic Salsa classics on the bestselling 1999 Supernatural and 2016 Santana IV albums.
From the outset, the musicians – who come from Ramsgate, Canterbury, New Romney, the Medway towns, and Whitstable – have striven to combine their deep personal love and reverence for the music of Santana with the excitement and spontaneity of live performance. They know that these are songs which simply cannot be conveyed effectively without passion and intensity.
It is now almost half a century since Santana first emerged onto the world stage. Over the intervening five decades the music has retained its place in the hearts and souls of millions of fans the world over.
It takes a very special tribute band to recreate the involvement and passion of the originals but Soul of Santana do just that – in style.
Authentic, credible and highly entertaining, Soul of Santana are looking forward to another night of brilliant music at the Pavilion which has seen some of their best gigs.
