Fresno Heavy Weather Band

Heavy Weather with the music of Santana began performing back in 1985 in Fresno California. Led by guitarist Fernando Verdialez, who is a former member of Redbone, the Native American rock group. Fernando was always interested in the music of Santana and the Latin Rock scene back in the 70s, so he started his own group with Marcos Castillo (currently with Malo), and his brother, Alex Castillo on timbales. They are joined by Dave Wallace B3 Hammond Organ. The 4 members have been playing with the group from the start for over 30 years now. Other band members now include: Vini Martinez on vocals, Jonathan Huizar on drums, and James Gaskill on bass. If you want to hear early Santana, this is the group playing songs from Woodstock to Fillmore days in the raw form like the original Santana

Raul Rekow was the only person to play in Dakila, Malo, Sapo and then 37 years with Santana. All 4 groups were at the heart of Latin Rock coming out of the Mission back in the 60's and 70's where it all started and he left his mark firmly planted on all of these groups.
