Robert Sarzo Celebrating the music of CARLOS SANTANA
A SALUTE TO SANTANA
CUBAN-born guitarist and composer, Robert Sarzo, is undoubtedly one of the busiest musicians in rock music today. Over the past year-and-a-half, Robert (aka “The VuDu Man,” as he is affectionately known to his fans), has been performing with Geoff Tate's version of Queensryche, to sold-out crowds across the USA, Canada and Brazil on the 25th Anniversary of Operation: Mindcrime tour, and during the summer of 2014. Robert released his long-awaited solo album, “After The Storm”. The album includes songs performed both in English and Spanish versions, and opens with an instrumental piece, “War Dance,” inspired by tribal rhythms, Afro Cuban. “After the Storm” spent several weeks in the number one position on Amazon's Latin Rock best sellers list.
Not one to remain idle for long, Robert has recruited a group of talented musicians to perform concerts saluting the illustrious career of Mexican-American guitarist, Carlos Santana beginning in the late-1960's, unprecedented fusion of rock, blues, and Latin-influenced melodies, set against a backdrop of Afro Cuban, conga and timbales rhythms, wove a unique musical tapestry that introduced the prevailing rock 'n' roll genre to the flavor of Spanish-style compositions, and inspired multitudes of Latino musicians to follow his pioneering example. Robert Sarzo was one of those aspiring young guitarists who drew inspiration from Santana's achievements. It seems only fitting, then, that after experiencing a highly successful career of his own, Robert Sarzo has chosen to Salute Santana, the man who helped set him upon his path as a musician decades ago, and to express his deep gratitude to Carlos Santana for being an inspiration not only to himself, but to so many Latino musicians who followed in the footsteps of this ground-breaking legend.

Robert Sarzo, he has worked with an array of notable and iconic people in the entertainment industry. As a bit of trivia, he was hired by Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, as the original replacement for Randy Rhoads. Robert never went on tour with Ozzy because Jet Records' Don Arden, also Sharon's father, had hired a different guitarist, Bernie Torme, without telling anyone.
Robert has worked with Interscope/Universal Record's Jimmy Iovine and legendary metal producers, Bob Ezrin and Mike Clink. He also worked with Robert Stigwood of "Saturday Night Fever" and Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts" fame on numerous soundtracks such as "Times Square", D.L. Byron the writer of Pat Benatar's hit "Shadows of the Night", Reggae artist Garland Jeffreys, and the late Sam Kinison on his "Leader of the Banned" album. Robert formed his band Hurricane in the early 80's and went on to have hits such as "Over the Edge" and their #1 hit "I'm Onto You."
In the early 1980s, Robert was introduced to bassist Tony Cavazo by Los Angeles heavy metal band Quiet Riot's lead vocalist Kevin DuBrow. Both Robert's brother Rudy and Cavazo's brother Carlos were in Quiet Riot at the time. He later joined with Cavazo, singer Kelly Hansen and drummer Jay Schellen to form the glam metal band Hurricane.
On January 25, 2013, it was announced that Sarzo had joined Geoff Tate's lineup after he was expelled from Queensrÿche. This band already included his brother Rudy. This is the first time the Sarzo brothers have played together in a national act.
