Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures, delivering with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar. For more than four decades—from Santana's earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco—Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.
Michael McDonald & Boz Scaggs – Michael McDonald: From '70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as "What A Fool Believes" and solo hits like "I Keep Forgettin'" through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time Grammy Award winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving. Boz Scaggs: Fans who have followed Scaggs' remarkable career dating back to the late Sixties with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980); and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs' characteristically deft touch as a singer.
ZZ Top & The Doobie Brothers: ZZ TOP a/k/a "That Little Ol' Band From Texas," lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and, in 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. ZZ TOP's music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American in derivation. The band's support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy. The Doobie Brothers: As durable as American steel, Northern California's four-time Grammy winning Doobie Brothers sound has become part of America's musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on "American Idol," and a fixture on radio formats from top 40 to classic rock. They continue to write and record new material, tour the world, boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, all while breaking new creative ground in the exploration of their musical connection with Nashville.
Steve Winwood: For more than four decades, Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock 'n' roll. Beloved for his eclectic style and superbly crafted songs, his band Traffic routinely defied convention to celebrate a host of perse sounds and influences. Landmark albums such as Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycorn Must Die confirmed their position as one of the most important British groups of the 1960's and 1970's. Later, his solo debut signaled a bold new artistic direction yielding popular hits like "Back In The High Life," "When You See A Chance," "Valerie," and "Higher Love."
Goo Goo Dolls: Featuring singer and guitarist John Rzeznik and bassist and singer Robby Takac — are on their third tour following the release of their 11th studio album, Boxes, lauded by the likes of People, Huffington Post, and Metro who call the album a "step forward in the band's extensive repertoire." Phillip Phillips: Since releasing his five-times- platinum debut single "Home" in spring 2012, Phillip Phillips has released two chart-topping albums and has taken his expansive brand of earthy guitar-fueled rock to stages across the globe.
In addition to its Summer Concert Series at its 4,000-seat amphitheater, Maryhill Winery also hosts free music on its vine-covered terrace every summer weekend beginning Memorial Day through September.
