A shared vision to create a truly authentic, high energy tribute to Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame artist, Carlos Santana, resulted in the formation of The StoneFlower Band in 2010. The name was adopted from a song on the Caravanserai Album, which represents a pivotal period in the evolution of the iconic Santana sound. The collaboration of these brilliantly paired musicians reproduces this sound with spot-on precision. StoneFlower’s seemingly effortless syncopation of percussion delivers a spellbinding resonance that gets the audience moving …in their seat or on their feet.
Over the years StoneFlower has enjoyed expanding their musical repertoire for their fans to include other great rock n’ roll bands such as: The Rolling Stones, The Doobie Brothers, David Bowie, Chicago, The Grateful Dead and more. Their uncompromising pursuit of perfection enables them to capture the signature sound of the original artists.
StoneFlower… a little Latin, a little Rock n’ Roll, a lotta good time.
