This phenomenal 6 to 10 piece latin rock explosion, now in its 18th year, continues to amaze fans wherever they present their celebration of the music of the legendary Carlos Santana. The aim of the band is to recreate the musicality and atmosphere of a live Santana performance and no other band comes closer to achieving this than VivaSantana. Playing to full houses as diverse as the prestigious London Guitar Show Wembley, to theatres and rock festivals in the UK, across Europe and even Cuba where, as a soloist, Marcos Rodriguez' performance was described as "a musical bridge between Cuba and Spain" It's all there, from the powerful 4 piece rhythm section that brings the heartbeat of the band that is congas, timbales, drums and bass, to the infectious Cuban piano and haunting Hammond organ wizardry of truly gifted keyboard maestros. The famous soulful vocal melodies in the native languages of the Americas complete what has been described by Classic Rock Magazine as "One Of The Top 5 Must See Tributes In The UK". VivaSantana are pleased to bring a preview of their 2018 tour show to Chickenshed and this special performance will include as many guests and past members of the band as can be accommodated. This promises to be a very lively night.
