Andy Santana & the West Coast Playboys
Watch Your Step!
Delta Groove Music
For his latest CD, Andy Santana has resurrected the infamous West Coast Playboys. Watch Your Step! features an army of talent including guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Kid Andersen, longtime musical companions Mighty Mike Schermer and June Core, as well as Bay Area blues stalwarts Rusty Zinn, Anthony Paule, Bob Welsh and others. Here Andy’s originals stand alongside some interesting covers that have the iconoclastic sensibilities of a true American original.
While listening to Watch Your Step! it is as if you are in a New Orleans dance hall that just happens to be on a beach in California. Sorry Santa Cruz, your secret is out of the bag.

Andy Santana was inducted in to the Sacramento Blues Hall of Fame on September 30, 2018 along with AJ Joyce, Jimmy Morello and RW Grigsby. There was also a special tribute to the late Frankie Lee.
