Star musical acts from around the country came to the 142 Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley on December 17 for Narada Michael Walden’s annual Holiday Jam and once again, this intimate show proved priceless. Can you name another show in a small venue sold out to no more than a few hundred attendees with appearances by musical geniuses as big as Carlos Santana, Narada Michael Walden and Tommy Johnston? I didn’t think so. The band rocked on for nearly four hours as guest after guest took turns on the stage giving audience members a show that was sure to be remembered.

It was a concert like none other. Dozens of famous musicians and vocalists from all over the country made their way to Mill Valley for Narada Michael Walden’s annual Holiday Jam Benefit Concert. The list of special guests was seemingly endless with names like Tony Lindsay, Tommy Johnston, Lara Johnston, Tevin Campbell, Jeanie Tracy, Dale “Satchmo” Powers, and many more. The unannounced special guest that made the night even more unforgettable was Carlos Santana. Disappearing from his seat during intermission and not returning for the second act, his wife still enjoying the music, anticipation began to grow for the idea that Carlos may be preparing to take the stage himself. When he finally emerged, guitar in hand, the crowd rose, he took charge of the stage, and the band started rocking for a finally that will continue to ring within the hearts of all in attendance for years to come.
