The current collection of musicians has been carefully chosen to best express this wonderful music.
The main goal of Roshan & The Santana Tribute Band is to capture the spirit & fire of Santana more than copying his recordings.
This is in keeping with Santana's vision of the music being a living, evolving entity that needs room to breathe and grow.
When the band transmits the energy and beauty of the music out to the audience and the crowd reflects it back to the band - that is the ultimate - as band, audience, dancers, and music become one exhilarating experience of the moment.

ROSHAN's unique live sound can be strong, like a 5 piece band, or as delicate as a flute or acoustic piano. Performing alone or with sax and/or congas, it's a complete musical experience. Besides his many guitar styles, he also plays Guitar Synthesizer to sound like trumpet, sax, flute, vibes, a horn section, and more.
He has the sound of a full band, complete with drums, bass, guitar, horns, keyboards, and up to five voices at once. His music can be mellow-Light Jazz, Standards, and Hawaiian, or full on dance/party music - Classic Rock and R&B with a touch of Reggae thrown in. Of course he can mix &match to suit your taste.
