|June 8 • Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute|
Crossfire Alan Iglesias has been playing guitar professionally since 1969 when he first started playing dances at his local VFW. After high school, Alan toured the New England area extensively with local blues-based rock bands, garnering a loyal regional following.
Feeling a strong affinity for Stevie’s music and stage show, he felt that endeavoring to reproduce a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert as close as he possibly could just seemed to be the right thing to do. His San Diego-based group Crossfire has been touring the nation since 2001 bringing Stevie’s live show to SRV fans everywhere.
He considers it a privilege to have the opportunity to play such soulful music in the style of someone who played so much from his heart, and would love to think that in some small way, he and the band are helping to keep the legacy of Stevie and his music alive.
|June 15 • Santana Tribute|
Caravanserai Now in it’s fifteenth phenomenal year, Caravanserai has established itself as the most widely known Santana Tribute band in the country. 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”.
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 45-year history. The Caravanserai show explosively recreates the rhythms, drive and the atmosphere of sounds that have made Santana a mainstay in the history Rock Music for the past five decades!
