Gringo Jingo is headed up by Steve Reed (Carlos) who has been playing “serious” lead guitar for 35 years. By “serious”, we mean he is fresh off the Vegas live music scene, playing regular gigs at casinos and showrooms in sin city. His resume includes a national tour with “Sir Rod,” a wildly popular Rod Stewart Tribute act. He’s opened for Molly Hatchet, Motorhead, and the Guess Who. Every band member has their own extensive resume including 2 professors of music at area colleges.
These seasoned musicians have the talent, chemistry, and presence to woo over audiences of nearly any demographic. The show comes with the serious instrumentation needed to reproduce the rich, velvety smooth sounds of Carlos Santana. Why Santana? His music appeals to a wide audience. Classics like “Black Magic Woman” and “Evil Ways” and contemporary hits like “Smooth” and “Maria Maria” draw a diverse crowd. People of all ages and backgrounds really get into Santana and Gringo Jingo performs his material with a party-like exuberance. No one will be sitting by the end of the set!
