The songs of Latin rock band Santana will fill Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe’s Vinyl this weekend.

Caravanserai, a tribute to Santana, plays the casino’s music venue Saturday night. The band plays hits from throughout Santana’s career.

“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,” according to the band’s online biography. “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-plus 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.”

Tickets to the show are $15 and include a drink.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe is located at 50 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
