Santana has maintained local involvement with various charities and causes during his Vegas run and continues that tradition by visiting Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas on Thursday January 6th. He will visit the facility with members of the Santana Band as well.

Once again the Legendary performer soulfully jammed through hit after hit tonight and continues to maintain his place as one of the great living guitar gods of all time.
