Leon Patillo in Concert

June 14 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

For the first time, on June 14th, Leon Patillo – former lead vocalist for world renowned group Santana – is coming to the Music Factory!

Tickets are $30.00 in advance and $35.00 at the door. Seating is general admission and doors open at 6:30 PM. Concert begins at 7pm. Concessions will be available for sale during the concert. The Music Factory is located on the 2nd floor of a non-handicap accessible building and there are some stairs to climb.

Leon became a major trendsetting force in Contemporary Christian Music by bringing funk and soul that was part of his musical DNA. Blending his passions for Motown and Rock and Roll led to create his popular first Bay area band, Leon’s Creation.
Driven by Leon’s original songs, powerful vocals, horn and string arrangements, piano and organ skills, the group’s Sly & The Family Stone-influenced fusion, led to a deal with Atlantic Records and opening slots for major emerging bands like Rare Earth and War. He was later hired to do arrangements for artists like The Pointer Sisters, George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic, Leo Sayer and Martha and the Vandellas.

The success of Leon’s Creation caught the attention of Carlos Santana, who after a private meeting hearing him sing and play organ, hired him to be the next lead vocalist for his megahit group, Santana. This took the singer to a whole new level of success, performing with the legendary guitarist throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Japan in front of tens of thousands of fans.

He became known for his dance/funk approach to religious and worship music as well as performing extensive tours as a one-man band, putting together a dazzling computerized show. Leon also started his own show called Leon & Friends, a Top 10 talk show on TBN.

His concerts around the globe have always been filled with excitement, humor and inspirational teaching, with audiences crossing all age and ethnic groups to see him sing, dance and motivate.
