Blues Defenders w/ special guest ANDY SANTANA
Santana's band has been chosen as the house band or session musicians for blues performances, including the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans with C.P. Love, and at the Bay Area Music Awards backing Bukka White, Joe Louis Walker, the Gospel Hummingbirds and Bonnie Raitt. For five years running they were chosen as the host band for the Hollywood Hall of Fame Festival, backing Willie Dixon, Jimmy Rogers, Luther Tucker, Billy Boy Arnold, Dave Myers, Carey Bell and William Clarke.

They were also featured artists at the Santa Cruz Blues Festival backing Earl King. As the host band at Moe's Alley they backed Lou Ann Barton, Jimmy Thackery, Coco Montoya, Tommy Castro, and Chris Cain. In addition, Santana's band backed Nappy Brown at the San Francisco Blues Festival. Santana has recorded and toured with Junior Watson and Angela Strehli.

Santana has also been employed as a record producer, and completed Jackie Payne's latest album for Delta Groove Productions.

Sonoma County's local band "The Blues Defenders" are dazzling crowds with their "gritty" roadhouse style of passionate West Coast Blues. Individually, they have played with some of the greats in blues music from Tower of Power, Doobie Brothers, Boz Skaggs, Cold Blood, Johnny Lee, and other legendary greats who shaped the world of blues music. The Blues Defenders can "hold their own" on any stage, and are the West Coast support band for the great Mississippi Blues-man "Johnny Rawls". Jeff Piche's gritty vocals and soulful harmonica front the funky bass sounds of Donny Mederos, Mighty Mike Rippee on drums, David Scott's smooth blues saxophone, and Matt Silva's wailing guitar keep the crowd on their feet all night long.
