HOUSE OF BLUES Celebrates Anniversary with Dale Evers Statue Unveiling Today
House Of Blues Las Vegas General Manager Andrew Economon said, "House of Blues has been a wonderful home for music fans and performers ever since the first House Of Blues opened 20 years ago, and a major part of the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas for the past 13 years. Our Vegas House Of Blues in particular, has always been a favorite venue for locals and a big part of what we do here is about community and serving our community. That's something we look forward to doing for another 20 years."
For more than forty years and as many albums later, Carlos Santana has sold more than 90 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten Grammy Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999's Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Smooth"). In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose web page on their induction notes, "Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock's true virtuosos and guiding lights."
The students performing at the unveiling Ceremony are only a small group of the 200 students who were generously gifted guitars from the Hermes Music Foundation. The foundation has anonymously funded many projects that support health, education, and basic life necessities. In 2009, the Hermes Music Foundation was established to continue with their "Project of Love." They also proudly support many Huichol communities with programs to create sustainable jobs by promoting their wonderful, spiritual, and colorful Art.
