Santana Tribute Band to Play at Westfield Memorial Library


On Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present a Santana tribute band called “Stone Flower.” The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

This tribute band was originally formed by four musicians who together had a love for the sounds and music of Carlos Santana and shared a vision to form a truly percussive, high energy tribute to the Hall of Fame Artist, Carlos Santana and the Santana Band.

Six musicians and their sound engineer will recreate the Santana sound, which includes everything from the Latin Rock/Blues to the high-energy Afro-Cuban collaborative rock sound that Santana is known for.
