San Francisco Fest in September 2016 was supposed to be like the old Day on the Green concerts they used to do in Oakland back when Bill Graham was alive. It was almost an all day affair, starting at three in the afternoon. Tower of Power opened, followed by the Doobie Brothers, then by Steve Miller, Santana next and finally Journey. I suppose I could use San Francisco Fest as my “S” but I’m going to stick to just Santana.
Carlos Santana’s wife is one of the drummers and she really got into it. There was an exhausting drum solo (looked exhausting for her anyway and actually I thought it went on just a little too long). I had a red guitar which kind of matches Carlos’.
I have a lot of extras to go with this show. There was a pamphlet that they gave out telling the times of the shows and a history of the Day on the Green Festivals
I even have a review from the paper the next day and some confetti that they shot out at the end of the show.
Here is Maria Maria:
There’s “S.” One week left to go! Thanks for coming along with me!
