Ruckatan with Special Guests Raul Rekow and Fred Sanchez of El Chicano
Ruckatan Latin Tribe is composed of seven players who have all contributed to the local Latin Rock scene in the Bay Area and internationally with various Latin, Reggae and Rock acts. Ruckatan is a fusion of Latin and Reggae. Members hailing from three different continents infuse their culture and love of their roots into this new band called Ruckatan, which includes Carlos Elizalde on vocals and hand percussions, Jose Angel Amador on vocals and keys, Blaine Hoopes on keys and various woodwinds, Derek Rolando on congas & timbales, Brian Camara on drums & percussions, Ray Uribes on bass and Carlos Hernandez (Los) on guitar. The music is very dance oriented with many Latin Caribbean and World flavors.
Raul Rekow has played congas with Carlos Santana since 1976, participating in the groundbreaking melding of Latin, rock and funk styles that characterized the band's history, as well as to perform with Sapo, Dakila & Malo. For over thirty years Rekow has added his pulsating and colorful rhythms to the sounds that have captivated audiences on five continents http://www.lpmusic.com/artists/artist/RaulRekow/
Caravanserai- The Santana Tribute
Now in its sixteenth phenomenal year, Caravanserai has established itself as the most widely known Santana Tribute band in the country. This is the group the San Jose Metro declared “The Top Santana Tribute” and the San Francisco Examiner called “The Country’s Pre-eminent Santana Tribute Band”. 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 45-year history. The Caravanserai show explosively recreates the rhythms, drive and the atmosphere of sounds that have made Santana a mainstay in the history Rock Music for the past five decades!
Special Guest Raul Rekow
We are excited to announce that the incredible L.P. artist Raul Rekow will join Caravanserai and Ruckatan for the 2nd Gathering of the Tribes Concert. This is going to be an Epic night of live Latin Rock & World music!
Raul Rekow has played congas with Carlos Santana since 1976, participating in the groundbreaking melding of Latin, rock and funk styles that characterizes the band's history. For over thirty years Rekow has added his pulsating and colorful rhythms to the Santana sound that has captivated audiences on five continents.
Initially self-taught, Rekow learned about Cuban percussion from fellow Santana veterans Armando Peraza and Orestes Vilato. He passes on that knowledge at LP sponsored clinics along with fellow Santana musician and LP artist Karl Perazzo. The duo feeds off of each other's energy and talent, resulting in a kinetic performance whether live in a clinic or on their best-selling instructional video From Afro-Cuban to Rock. Their presentations have become immensely popular because of the combination of top-notch expertise and an easygoing sense of humor.
