Sunrise, Florida: our last day on the Santana tour… we have printed up special black crew t-shirts and swag (free t-shirts) all of Santana’s crew – as is customary… my crew is a little disappointed that they don’t receive any Santana swag in return, this being the FIRST time in over 5 years that the swagging wasn’t reciprocated… during our last set i am having problems with the monitors and i can’t tell wether i am simply going deaf from playing with Santana or wether there is a technical problem… but, we finish the show to a standing ovation… then the last sitting-in with Santana… we’ll miss those guys… the whole band are great musicians… from the great Chester on keyboards to Raul on congas, Karl on timbales, and of course Carlos, all of them very nice people… and we’ll miss all the people that dance at Carlos’ shows, but that’s why it will be fun to tour with LUNA NEGRA XL, the rhumba-phonic, flamenc-o-matic dance band, next year…
