The information below is from a previous Fair.
Santanaways leader Benito Meschoulam is one of the best guitarists ever to pay tribute to Carlos Santana’s music today. His mannerisms, style, grace, guitar work and look-alike as a Carlos front man are second to none, bringing you as close as you will get to a real Carlos Santana performance.
Benito feels and plays from the beauty within and not from his head like a show-off technical thing that many do today. His timing and sense of rhythm is excellent. He is surrounded by the best musicians possible to bring Carlos’ music alive. You can see it in their faces when they perform their show.
Santanaways also has a Gregg Rollie doing vocals and keys just like the real Santana band does, Ray Nichols.. This is what it was like back in the ’70s when Carlos was doing some of his best work, especially Abraxas, which is one of the shows the band also does.
The one thing that our performance hears the most is, “Is that really Carlos?” Benito is Carlos on stage, to the note.
