6.1.18 Caravanserai w/ the Josh Gonzales Band


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.

Over the past years the Caravanserai experience has grown throughout the west coast, we have had the privilege of performing at many wonderful venues.

The Josh Gonzales Band

Lined with prairie grass and seemingly unending openness, the high plains of Wyoming would appear to be the least likely place for the emergence of dynamic reggae music. Instead, with the ascent of the Josh Gonzales Band – straight out of Wyoming’s state capitol, Cheyenne – they are simply evidence that the spirit and essence of reggae music can reach the soul of any community and any listener.
