Oh What A Night - Sold Out - Puro Bandido 40th Anniversary

Puro Bandido Band

Opening the sold out show was the 4 piece group featuring Jenevieve Francisco with her singing partner, keyboard and drummer with the singing duo of Rose Marie nice and easy. The show was like an Ike & Tina version of Proud Mary - it started out nice and easy, then it ended rough because the Bandidos don't do anything nice and easy.

The 40 year Anniversary of Puro Bandido was a ball of fire started off by "Queen of The South" actor and MC, JT Campos. Bandido leaders Richard Segovia and Johnny Gunn rifled through classic border rock tunes the entire evening. Special guests for the night included rapper and fellow Texan, Ricky Versetti along with Eric McCann, who has worked with Cindy Blackman Santana, and Al DiMeiola.

Puro Bandido Band

This is a group that I first started working with as far back as 1983. One of the highlights of the show was a tribute to Eddie Money who both Richard and Johnny had spent time working with in the past. One alum from back in the day who came to celebrate and perform was drummer Angel Orosco. The party was on with a full house of Bandido friends and family as well as the hometown La Mission crowd. Stay tuned because Richard Segovia ain't done yet with recordings, touring and many other projects in the works.

Coming Home - Santana / WAR Breakout The Chase Center

Carlos Santana

They say you can't go home again, well don't tell Carlos Santana that. I recently saw his show at the Shoreline this past summer with Santana and the Doobie Brothers which turned out to be a great show.

When the show for Santana and WAR was first announced at The Chase Center, I bought tickets more to check out the venue since I had already seen both bands recently. But I was quite impressed, not with the venue, but the spirit of Santana.

Carlos Santana

The group was inspired playing in front of a true hometown crowd in San Francisco not far from where it all began back in the late 60's.

A couple of Highlights of the evening was bringing in brother Jorge Santana to pay tribute Malo with a rendition of "Suavecito" followed by "Crystal Blue Persuasion" with Carlos coming over to give his younger sibling a brotherly hug to the delight of the crowd.

Jorge Santana

They were then joined by a group effort from opening act WAR band members coming on stage to perform "Why Can't We Be Friends" taking over the stage and there was truly a brotherhood feel to the evening.
