Marvin Castillo

Name: Marvin Castillo

Location: San Diego, California

Santana Fan Since: I was in 7th grade in 1974. Santana’s Greatest Hits was my first record.

Why You Love Santana’s Music: It transcends all genres, ages, continents, etc. The vibe hits you right in the middle of your soul!


How Many Times You’ve Seen Carlos Live and Where/When:
I have seen him at least 10-12 times. They have all been in Chula Vista’s Amphitheater except for two times in San Diego’s Mission Bay Park.

Random Santana-related Fact: My son Brian, who is now 17 years old, attended the taping of the Supernatural DVD in LA County with his mother and he was lucky enough to get up on stage at a concert in Chula Vista and played the maracas with Carlos and Sonny Sandoval of POD. I am attaching a picture that his mom took that night. He was only 7 or 8 years old (I can’t remember if Carlos played down here in 2002 or 2003 on that tour).
