Rock Legend Gregg Rolie To Undertake Summer Tour Dates

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Gregg Rolie, best known for his vocals and keyboard work with legendary music groups Santana and Journey, will be playing select dates with his band throughout the summer.

The Gregg Rolie Band will be performing electrifying versions of several Santana classics such as "Evil Ways", "Black Magic Woman" "Soul Sacrifice", "Jingo" and "No One To Depend On" as well as tracks from Rolie's previous effort 'Roots' and new songs. The Gregg Rolie Band consists of Adrian Areas (son of original Santana percussionist Jose Chepito Areas) on Timbales, drummer Ron Wikso (who was also in The Storm), Elliot "Toby" Borrero on congas, Kurt Griffey on guitars, internationally acclaimed bassist, Chapman Stick artist and Santana alumni Alphonso Johnson and former Jean Luc Ponty keyboardist Wally Minko.

Rolie was determined to resurrect the sound he helped shape and make famous as Santana's original lead singer and keyboard player, while at the same time bringing it forward to the 21st century. Speaking to Voices of Latin Rock recently, Rolie said, "“The band is great, because we all really enjoy each other and I think the sound reflects the fun we are having. "We subtitle the band; Gregg Rolie Band... 'Santana - the way you remember it."

Rolie is touring in support of his latest release, the critically acclaimed 'Rain Dance', which can be ordered through CDBaby at this location.
