Santana and Doobie Brothers To Play Bluesfest

by Paul Cashmere on September 29, 2016

in News

Santana and Doobie Brothers are the two latest acts to be added to Bluesfest.

In a statement, Bluesfest boss Peter Noble had this to say:

“Here it is, after our Soul/R&B announce last week featuring Mary J. Blige, Bluesfest announces two absolute legends this week, Santana & The Doobie Brothers. You can only wonder who will be announced next (week?).

When you hear the first note of Black Magic Woman by Santana – you KNOW who it is you are hearing and the same with dozens of other songs. His signature guitar sound is unlike any other, it simply is his and his alone. It’s the same with everything he creates. Santana is music royalty – one of the greats. A hero to Latin people worldwide, and everyone else who loves his music too. Santana last played Bluesfest in 2013, this performance now legendary. It is one of the GREAT shows, and one that is still talked about. We are beyond proud to present Santana at Bluesfest on Sunday April 16.

The Doobie Brothers blitzed when they last played Bluesfest. They are simply a brilliant live band. They perform hit after hit, leaving their fans both old and new in raptures.

This is the announcement, along with those which came before, which shows that Bluesfest is serious about 2017 being its best line up yet. And there is plenty more to come. It is not a year to hold back on buying tickets. We have gone all out to present our best festival yet…..come join us.”
