SUPERNATURAL is a Santana tribute band that has stood the test of time – a rare occurrence in today’s ever-changing musical landscape. Formed in 1999 after the release of its namesake Santana album, the group went from garage to bars to clubs to festivals within 2 years.

In spite of many hardships and personnel changes, founding member and drummer Steve “Ice Man” Eiseman has held the band together. After adding the amazing talent of vocalist/guitarist Todd Plant in 2000, then after settling on a stable lineup of percussionists Manny Betancourt and Robbie Baker, bassist John Shinn, and keyboardist Jim Persons, they brought in Chicago blues guitarist Dave Mueller to channel Carlos Santana’s blistering and soulful licks. To spice things up even more, Supernatural began offering an (optional) special guest female vocalist to sing backup, cover the Michelle Branch tunes, and add a sultry feminine presence to the show.

Supernatural has developed into the consummate family-friendly festival band (see “Gig List”). In addition, vocalist Todd Plant has performed or recorded with a plethora of classic rock legends including members of The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Chicago, Kansas, Marshall Tucker Band, Firefall, Blue Oyster Cult, as well as guitarist/vocalist Rick Derringer (Johnny & Edgar Winter, Ringo Starr), the late drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles (Jimi Hendrix, Santana) and celebrity/wrestler/actor//bassist Hulk Hogan!

The Supernatural experience offers great musicianship, authentic song re-creation and a high-energy performance that leaves the band members exhausted and its audiences thoroughly entertained!
