Mohegan Sun Arena                         Uncasville, CT.  August 19, 2015

     Carlos Santana recently stopped by the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. to unleash his sultry Latin sound to a capacity crowd. When Mr. Santana and company took the stage, the crowd was up on their feet, dancing to the sounds of Soul Sacrifice, Saideira, Love Makes The World Go Round, Maria Maria and Europa.

 

     Mr. Santana handed the stage over to his son, Salvador Santana and Alex Nester to play a few songs off his new CD which was being released this week. A lot of fans thought this portion of the show took away from the vibe of the night for Santana. While Alex is a great singer and hit many high notes so effortlessly, I think she stole this portion of the show from Salvador.

 

     Santana took back the stage to finish off the night with classic hits such as Evil Ways, Smooth, Tequila, Black Magic Woman, and Oye como va. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed watching him conquer the guitar while the band added the Latin rhythm. He can blow away many guitarists half his age with the finger movements he did up and down the neck of the guitar.

 

     Overall, it was a fantastic show enjoyed by everyone in attendance.
