Gutarist Michael Hernandez and Bassist/Lead Singer Steve Garland grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and came up in some of the same clubs Carlos Santana himself did. In the 70's when Santana burst on the Scene with a one of a kind sound. Micheal spend years perfecting the Santana guitar "tone" and the latin rock solos. Meantime Steve was busy mastering the Santana Bass parts and vocal styles. As they met, jammed and formed the nucleus of the band, they searched for others who were as talented as the different members of Santana itself. The result is the VIVA SANTANA show. You'll hear the killer sound and guitar solo...
