Santana has been a big supporter of the Las Vegas community and it has become his tradition before each of his House of Blues runs to visit charitable organizations that make our city thrive, or recognize local groups or schools that are doing great things for our community. The House of Blues headliner returns to shows at the House of Blues on September 16.
