San Francisco’s Mission District, the rhythm of the street; the heartbeat of the city; the birthplace of the Grammy Award-winning band Santana—and so it is also with CARNAVAL! the premier Santana tribute band. Formerly known as Caravanserai, the band has chosen to carry on since the retirement of their lead guitarist. Now with two new members, they are rebranded as CARNAVAL! these veteran musicians have spent decades bringing you the legendary sounds of Santana. You’ll hear all the hits from those early years through the new favorites of today. All of it played with the same instrumentation, soul, and passion. CARNAVAL! faithfully recreates the drive and the sound that has made Santana’s music a mainstay in rock music history for the past five decades! ¡VIVE!
