Ramona Bowl presents new Alessandro in Christmas Parade

Santana comes to the role of Alessandro with a performing background that is in many ways as multidimensional and contrasted as the tale of "Ramona." Having received a bachelor's degree from California State University Northridge in music industry studies with an emphasis in classical guitar, Santana was awarded "Most Outstanding Student" for his vocal work as a soloist with the university choir. After graduation, Santana embraced his love of music, with a charismatic stage presence and love of performing, his band Holy Grail was signed to Prosthetic Records. For close to two decades, his unmatched guitar skills, vocal ability and love of writing complex, anthemic lyrics helped propel Holy Grail to become one of the most popular heavy metal bands in Southern California, earning them such accolades as 2016 "Best Metal Act" in Los Angeles by the LA Weekly and nominated for the Metal Hammer Golden Gods' Best New Artist Award. Holy Grail's song "Fight to Kill" was featured in the video game Rock Band for XBox. Santana's reputation as a performer, writer and virtuoso eventually landed him as a permanent member of the band Huntress in addition to Holy Grail. -- Valley News
