Back by popular demand The leading tribute to the music of Santana – live:
On stage 8.30pm
Oye Santana are the leading tribute to the music of Carlos Santana featuring awesome guitar, passionate and exciting as Santana himself, and an infectious good-time feel – each track a fiesta, every performance a show. You’ll sing, smile and dance from the first chink of tambourine to the get-up-and-boogie finale.
"The first thing that really appealed to me about Carlos Santana was his tone," says Oye Santana’s founder, Milan Webb. "As soon as I heard Samba Pa Ti I knew one day I'd love to be able to play like that." It's a dream he cherished until the time was right to form a Santana tribute, with the right ethos and the right players to do justice to the sound, to the material and to all the Santana fans who feel the same way.
That’s exactly what Oye Santana is about – playing Santana’s hits (and there’s more than four decades of catalogue to draw on) exactly the way the audience knows and loves them. And every number in Oye Santana’s set is a gem in its own right. From early Santana there are favourites including Jingo, Evil Ways, Oye Como Va and Soul Sacrifice among others. Then there are the middle-era songs such as Carnaval, Let The Children Play, Dance Sister Dance and She’s Not There. And of course there are the modern-day hits – Smooth, Maria Maria, Corazon Espinado and Saideira among them – all combined in a two hour-plus performance driven by infectious rhythms and a feast of musical talent.
Come and see (and hear) it for yourself. They’ll have you singing along, smiling along and dancing along from the first chink of a tambourine to the explosive finale. You’re going to love Oye Santana
