Rockin Down the Hiway
The Ultimate Musical Road Trip &Doobie Bros Tribute
Americans LOVE the road. They love their cars, the highways, freeway, the back roads, dirt roads, side roads/ They love big rigs, pick up trucks, sports cars, SUV's, some even love hybrids and electric cars. Yes, Americans "get their motors runnin'" and "head out on the highway." Our love affair with cars, highways and road trips have been documented and recorded in hundreds of songs over the decades.
Rockin' Down The Hiway is a live, theme show designed to take audiences on a journey through the world of hot rods, cruising, road trips, highways, and to simply celebrate America's love affair with the "great open road."www.rockindownthehiway.com

(The Santana Tribute)
Conceived as a fantasy band by lead guitarist Leo Herrera and fueled into reality by the enthusiasm of friends and family members, Caravanserai is a project of love and devotion. Originally a replication of, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Santana's legendary early days, Caravanserai has grown to include material from all eras of Santana's 30+ year history. From the 1969 hit Evil Ways to monster hit Smooth which is on the world renowned and 9 time Grammy winning CD Supernatural, as well as hits from Santana's most recent CD release All That I Am. Caravanserai performs music to satisfy Santana fans young and old.
Painstaking care has been taken in the recreation of early and new 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 used, right down to the Paul Reed Smith guitars used by band leader Leo Herrera.
Caravanserai has also recently augmented their sound with the addition of a horn section --the Bay Area's Cali Horns. They can be seen at select performances throughout the year. Over the past years the Caravanserai experience has grown throughout the west coast, we have had the privilege of performing at many wonderful venues.www.santanatributeband.com
