A top tribute to Santana sound

Aaron Wise 1st Feb, 2017

AN INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed rock and Latin American tribute band are heading to Worcester to put on a fiesta-fuelled show.

Renowned as the world’s best Santana tribute, Oye Santana will perform at Huntingdon Hall this Saturday (February 4), where they will perform all your favourite hits, such as ‘Jin-Go-Lo-Ba’, ‘Samba Pa Ti’ and ‘Soul Sacrifice’.

The audience will also be able to get their feet tapping to Carlos Santana’s modern repertoire, including ‘Smooth’, ‘Corazón Espinado’ and ‘Maria Maria’.

The band is led by Milan ‘Carlos’ Webb, a virtuoso guitarist who not only sounds the part, but looks the part too.

But it’s not just about the guitar, as Hector Gomez and Auriol Kobani ensure the vocals are up to the mark, while Paul ‘Murph’ Murphy is a powerhouse behind the percussion rig.

Formed in San Francisco, California in 1966 by Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana, the band first came to widespread public attention when they performed Soul Sacrifice at Woodstock in 1969.

The band went on to win nine Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the latter all in 2000. Carlos also won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988.

Oye Santana promise a fiesta-tinged show that will have the audience enthralled from the first chink of a tambourine to the get-up-and-boogie finale.

The event starts at 8pm and costs £16 per person.
