Continuing partying after the Mad Hatter Parade in the Empress Lounge. Doors open at 5:30 and music at 6:30pm with Andy Santana and the West Coast Playboys.
Veteran West Coast musician Andy Santana is a smooth, dynamic vocalist and harmonica player with a sophisticated urban style. With thirty-five years of professional experience, he is also an accomplished songwriter/guitarist with an unusual gift for lyrics and is proficient at creating powerful melodies.
Andy always surrounds himself with top West Coast musicians. The West Coast Playboys have been chosen as the house/backup band for many Blues legends. For 5 years running he was chosen as the host band for the Hollywood Hall of Fame Fest. There he backed legendary Chicago Blues musicians, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Rogers, Luther Tucker, Billy Boy Arnold, Freddie Robinson, Dave Myers, Cary Bell and west coast artists Rusty Zinn, William Clarke and King Ernest.
“Andy Santana plays the guitar exactly like I like. He has a clean precise tone that is very melodic. It is simple and to the point never losing sight of the melody just like his wonderful vocals.” – Anson Funderburgh.
“Andy Santana is a local legend in Northern California, having been soulfully singing, blowing harp, playing rocking blues guitar and leading first class blues combos for four decades. Now Andy is a Delta Groove artist and hopefully the world will know what a shining star we have in the NorCal region. Show us what you got dude!” – Mark Hummel
