Santana Lead Vocalist Andy Vargas to Guest Star on Living With Fran, The WB's Hit Sit-Com Starring Fran Drescher, on Fri., Sept. 30, 9:30pm

Sep 30, 2005, 01:00 ET from Andy Vargas

    LOS ANGELES, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Andy Vargas, the dynamic lead singer
 for the Carlos Santana Band, is the featured guest star on the September 30
 episode of Living With Fran, the WB Network's hit situation comedy starring
 Fran Drescher.  The all-new episode airs at 9:30PM this Friday night, with a
 plotline revolving around Fran and her clan sneaking in to one of Vargas'
 concerts after being unable to score tickets.
     Vargas and Drescher first met backstage after Santana's June 15, 2005
 concert at NYC's Madison Square Garden.  They became fast friends, and the
 television star invited Andy to make a future appearance on her series.
 Vargas' TV debut adds to his spirit of celebration this week, with the
 September 30th air-date falling one day after his birthday -- and,
 coincidentally, exactly on Drescher's.
     Andy Vargas has been with the Carlos Santana Band since 1999.  He's
 currently on the road with Santana for the second leg of their 2005 "Embrace
 Your Light" Tour, featuring dates in the western and southwestern U.S. and
 cities in western Canada through mid-October.  On Santana's forthcoming album
 All That I Am, set for release November 1 on Arista Records, Andy's lead
 vocals shine on musical partnerships with Carlos Santana including the Latino
 doo-wop/funk/rock hybrid "Da Tu Amor," and the scorching, high-energy track
 "El Fuego."
     In addition to being part of Santana, Andy Vargas -- who began playing
 with his father Javier Vargas' mariachi band at age seven -- is a composer and
 solo artist, and is also collaborating with the stellar Maria Conchita Alonso
 on her upcoming album.  Like Santana's music, Vargas' work is multi-cultural
 and fused with elements of many different genres.  He will be performing
 several dates in the coming months at Los Angeles' famed Conga Room, where
 he'll be joined onstage by fellow Santana members Karl Perazzo and Raul Rekow.
