Locke adds, "We often discussed what band we could replicate in a similar fashion and when we befriended a young, female musician who just happened to sing and play keys (and be the daughter of Eagles member Joe Walsh), the Rumours concept was born. We parted ways with Lucy Walsh soon after, but with a stroke of good luck, her roommate Jesika Miller turned out to be a dead ringer for Stevie. We then continued our search for our McVies who we soon found in photographer/filmmaker Rebecca Fishman, and long time Ben Lee collaborator and former tour mate, Nic Johns."
Books, interviews, and endless live clips have been studied in our pursuit of sonic and visual accuracy. Everything down to accurate stage beverages are portrayed in the show which covers the band from '75 - '79.
The Rumours Tribute Show excels in the fact that the members are age appropriate and fully committed to the concept. ----------------------------------------------------------
Conceived as a fantasy band by lead guitarist Leo Herrera and fueled into reality by the enthusiasm of friends and family members, Caravanserai is a project of love and devotion. Originally a replication of, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Santana's legendary early days, Caravanserai has grown to include material from all eras of Santana's 30+ year history. From the 1969 hit Evil Ways to monster hit Smooth which is on the world renowned and 9 time Grammy winning CD Supernatural, as well as hits from Santana's most recent CD release All That I Am. Caravanserai performs music to satisfy Santana fans young and old.
Painstaking care has been taken in the recreation of early and new music performed by this band of journeymen from the San Francisco Bay Area. All the instrumentation used by Santana over the years is there: guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, timbales, and congas. In some cases the exact kind of instruments are used, right down to the Paul Reed Smith guitars used by band leader Leo Herrera.
