Drummer Cindy Blackman Santana Announces Solo Jazz Tour Dates for 2024

Drummer Cindy Blackman Santana Announces Solo Jazz Tour Dates

NEW YORK, USA, February 27th, 2024 – After striking a rhythmic chord with ESPN’s new Monday Night Football anthem, Blackman Santana’s 2024 plans include a solo album and tours with the Cindy Blackman Santana Band and Santana.

World-renowned drummer and bandleader Cindy Blackman Santana will hit the road this year with her highly acclaimed and vibrant ensemble the Cindy Blackman Santana Band for multiple shows in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Portsmouth, NH, Baltimore, MD, and New York City. Audiences can expect an intimate and soulful musical journey as Cindy and her stellar band, including Aurélien Budynek (guitar), Felix Pastorius (bass), Emilio Modeste (saxophone), Zaccai Curtis (Piano), and JD Allen (saxophone, joining for select NYC shows), explore the depths of jazz, rock, and fusion alongside electrifying performances showcasing Blackman Santana’s signature drumming style.

The New York Sun praised last summer’s New York City shows at Birdland, stating, “It’s hard to imagine a situation where she is not in charge of everything. Like the great drummer-leaders of modern jazz, she determines more than the beat and the tempo.”

Blackman Santana says, “I’m thrilled to bring my band to the East Coast! We’re excited to connect with the audience and share the energy and passion we bring to the music.”

Blackman Santana struck a rhythmic chord last fall with the highly anticipated launch of ESPN’s new Monday Night Football anthem where she, alongside eight-time Grammy Award winner Chris Stapleton and multi-generational artist Snoop Dogg, reimagined the Phil Collins classic “In the Air Tonight.”

This year, Blackman Santana will navigate seamlessly between her own ensemble and the iconic Santana collective, which kicks off another set of dates in May as part of the more than ten-year residency An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live at House of Blues Las Vegas, a must-see live experience for fans of the award-winning artist, as well as on the Santana and Counting Crows Oneness Tour 2024 with dates across the U.S. this summer.

Next, Blackman Santana will head back into the studio for her upcoming solo album, a testament to her enduring musical legacy and unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of sound.
