Santana at Choctaw Casino Resort
Kelly Dearmore Recommends
Regardless of whether you thought “Smooth,” the 1999 smash-hit Carlos Santana collaboration with Rob Thomas was a precious gem or cheesy chunk of fluff, the 69-year-old guitar legend has been a worthy, bridge-gapping icon for most of his life. Surging to prominence after his transcendent Woodstock performance in 1969, the San Francisco son has nurtured a fusion of Latin rock, blues and jazz that no one else can lay claim to. Catching the influential and trailblazing Santana in concert is certainly a smooth move.
