THE Smooth Latin rhythms of Viva Santana can he heard at the Hertford Corn Exchange tomorrow (Friday) night.
This phenomenal seven-piece Latin rock explosion continues to amaze fans wherever they present their celebration of the music of legendary guitarist Carlos Santana.
It’s all there, from the powerful four-piece rhythm section that brings the heartbeat of the band that is congas, timbales, drums and bass with a precise understanding of traditional and modern Latin rhythms, to the infectious Cuban piano and haunting Hammond organ wizardry of a truly gifted keyboard maestro.
The famous soulful vocal melodies in the native languages of the Americas by the only UK Santana tribute band that boasts Latin members completes what was recently described by Classic Rock Magazine as “one of the top five must see tributes in the UK”.
Though the tag of tribute band just doesn’t do this group of talented musicians justice.
The band they pay homage to, Santana, enjoyed a huge hit in the 70s with a cover of The Zombies single She’s Not There and later won a Record of the Year Grammy in 2000 for single Smooth, the track coming from Supernatural, which also won a best album Grammy.
Tickets for Viva Santana at the Fore Street venue cost from £12.50.
Doors open at 7.30pm.

* The Zombies, who originally released She’s Not There in the 60s, will play the Corn Exchange in Hertford themselves on May 18.
