Santana's eponymous 1969 debut album is the next selection for the Gusto Vinyl Happy Hour series at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, in the Sportsmen's Tavern.
Previous events in the Gusto Vinyl Happy Hour series were held before near capacity crowds. Those wishing to attend Sept. 10 are encouraged to arrive early, as entry is not guaranteed. There is no presale available.
Buffalo News Music Critic Jeff Miers and 97 Rock DJ Anita West co-host each event of the monthly series, held on select Mondays.
Each month, Miers and West select a classic album from one the great forms of American music, spin portions of it on vinyl live in the club and open the floor to questions.
The evening is capped by a live performance from a hand-picked selection of Buffalo's finest musicians, who perform their own interpretations of selections from that month's album.
On Sept. 10, a band consisting of George Puleo (guitar), Jeff Miers (guitar), GC Rnsm (percussion), Damone Jackson (drums), Paul Yates (bass) and Joe Rozler (keys) will perform "Santana" classics.
No advance purchase is available, but again, early arrival is encouraged. There is a $7 cover at the door.
