Santana to Headline PRS Guitars Benefit Concert for The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center

Posted Aug 20, 2014

On the evening of Monday, October 13th, Paul Reed Smith Guitars will host the 15th Anniversary of the acclaimed One Night One Show One Cause Benefit Concert, presented by The Baltimore Sun Media Group for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. This year’s event will take place at the Modell Center for the Performing Arts at the Lyric Opera House in Downtown Baltimore, Maryland, and will feature an exclusive performance by SANTANA.

Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures. For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of Guitar Heaven (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. On December 8th, 2013 Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. He is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. Santana recently kicked off an 18 show US tour with Rod Stewart along with stand-alone dates for ‘The CorazónTour.’

The VIP Pre-party will include a Live Guitar auction, hosted by Jon Levinson of Alex Cooper Auctioneers and feature guitars autographed by such names as Carlos Santana and the Baltimore Ravens, catered small plates by The Classic Catering People and drinks featuring Casa Noble Tequila and American Harvest Organic Spirit.
