We want to congratulate Salvador Santana and his wife on the birth of their first child, Esteban Rio Santana (Steven River Santana) beautiful in any language. We understand this birth did not come easily and their were some complications along the way and hope the rest of the way is a much easier path to life.

This now can explain to the public your time away from the music scene and we look forward to you enjoying parenthood and experiencing being a father. We hope we will be seeing soon performing again with a new purpose and exuberance.

Congratulations!

Club Fox Sat Nov 3, Annual Caravanserai Show with guests Patron and Tony Lindsay

Caravanserai performing onstage

Now in its twenty first phenomenal year, Caravanserai is the most widely known and traveled Santana Tribute band in the land, and is now an established icon in the tribute world country-wide. This is the group the San Jose Metro declared "The Top Santana Tribute" and the San Francisco Examiner called "The Country's Pre-eminent Santana Tribute Band" and radio DJ Wayne Coy declared "The Greatest Santana Tribute in the World" on the air at KKIQ 101.7 in the Bay Area.

Tremendous respect for Santana and attention to the detail that has been taken in the recreation of early and new Santana music performed by this band of journeymen from the San Francisco Bay Area. All the instrumentation used by Santana over the years is there: guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, timbales, and congas. In some cases the exact kind of instruments are even used, right down to the Paul Reed Smith guitars used by band leader Leo Herrera.

Over the past 21 years, the Caravanserai experience has grown throughout the west coast and now throughout the entire country. Caravanserai has also had the privilege of performing at many wonderful venues.

Patron who will be on hand to open the show again for the second year due to popular demand have just come off a rousing performance at the Vallejo Waterfront Festival where they left the crowd wanting more and hoping the group will be back soon. Booking agent for the show Jeff Trager who experienced the Latin Rhythm group for the first time was thoroughly amazed and pleased with their command of Latin Rock songs and keeping the audience in their hand.

Club Fox Sat Dec 1 Latin Rock, inc Holiday Show
Featuring the debut of MOMOTOMBO SF with special guests L.A.Project

Momotombo SF band members

MOMOTOMBO SF is a 10 piece group of legendary Bay Area musicians brought together by former Malo members timbalero Leo Rosales and guitarist Gabriel Manzo. The band combines Latin rhythms, Afro Cuban beats, Jazz and Rock to create an exciting, powerful and authentic Latin Rock sound straight from the psychedelic days of Winterland and The Fillmore.

Comprised mainly of notable Malo and Santana alumni, MOMOTOMBO SF features selections from both iconic San Francisco native bands from which they came, with an emphasis on musicianship and improvisational creativity, and the intent to keep the Latin Rock legacy alive through sharing their music.

The group is named after the first song on the Warner Bros. "Malo Dos" album, "Momotombo," which is also the name of a volcano in Nicaragua. SF for San Francisco, of course, where the volcanic sound of Latin Rock erupted. MOMOTOMBO SF. Come experience their fire with LRI, December 1st at Club Fox!


L.A. Project Band album cover art

Led by the one and only, Delia Padilla, L.A. Project will come to rock the stage to keep the dance floor shaking. The group has been growing in popularity around the Bay Area due to their diverse eclectic set list and song styling making these songs their own. Be sure to catch them with LRI or at a show near you.

Zebop takes Fairfield by Storm

Zebop band members posing onstage

What an awesome show for Zebop and guests Los Cochinos. Zebop performing at the Fairfield Downtown Theatre for the second time and earning the headline position after their outstanding debut brought down the house. Don't take my word for it, please read the review from Tony Wade of Fairfield

"It's fitting that premier Santana tribute band Zebop!'s name, taken from the title of the pioneering San Francisco Latin rock band's 1981 album, includes an exclamation point. Their two-plus hours performance on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 at the Fairfield Downtown Theatre with openers Los Cochinos achieved the tricky balance of leaving an audience completely sated and yet clamoring for more at the same time.

Los Cochinos band performing on stage

Zebop! performed at the 2017 Latin Rock Night at the Downtown Theatre and opened for Sapo featuring Richard Bean, former Malo member who co-wrote the 1972 hit song "Suavecito." Now, Sapo was great that night, but, truth be told, Zebop! stole the show with their intense authentic performances of beloved Santana songs and hence their headlining spot this year.

The band includes incredibly talented musicians but none of it would work without the fretboard wizardry of lead guitarist Antonio Jose Marquez. His devotion to the music and artistry of Santana is inspiring. Zebop! captures all the majesty and power of the band that first captured the attention of the world at Woodstock and has recorded numerous albums with classic songs since then.

There were two really great parts about having Zebop! headline this year. First, obviously they played longer and instead of just doing the expected hits like "Evil Ways" "Oye Coma Va," "Smooth" and many more, they dipped deeper into the Santana catalog (actually more than the real Santana does live.) Thus lesser-known tunes like "Stormy" were presented next to classics like "Samba Pa Ti" and "Black Magic Woman" and more."
