Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon for one ticket to see Aja Vu, a Steely Dan cover band, and Caravanserai, a Santana cover band, at the Tower Theatre on April 9 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Choose between two options:
For $20, you get one ticket for a reserved seat in rows A–J (a $40 value).
For $15, you get one general-admission ticket (a $30 value).
The historic Tower Theatre hosts a night of classic covers of genre-spanning songs by Steely Dan and guitar-icon Carols Santana. Aja Vu, the Steely Dan tribute band, hails from the San Francisco Bay area and have shared the stage with The Doobie Brothers, The Ford Brothers, and Eddie Money, while honing their musical chops and faithful reproductions of jazz hands. The most sincere form of flattery continues with Caravanserai, professional Santana enthusiasts. The sonic impersonators wrangle the same instruments used by Santana, including Paul Reed Smith guitars, to echo Santana’s distinctive sound down to the flutter of the timbales and the grumble of Carlos’ belly after many meal-less hours on the road.
Opened in 1939, the Tower Theatre is a destination in and of itself, featuring neon-tube lighting, ultraviolet murals from Dutch-American artist Anthony Heinsbergen, ghostly hauntings from three former U.S. presidents, and a restored marquee.
Groupon customers can redeem their Groupons before the show or at the venue, but general-admission seats are first come, first served.
