Luis Santiago Memorial

Luis A. Santiago 1925-2014:
We regret to announce that one of Jazz Central Studios’s own has passed.
Luis Santiago (percussion) died January 18th at 5:17 pm. After a bad fall he took on Thanksgiving Day this year he remained hospitalized and immobile the last seven weeks of his life. He had just turned 88 years old. Luis is survived by seven children, 15 grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
When the space that we occupy at 407 Central Ave S.E. first came into Mac Santiago and Tanner Taylor’s radar back in July 2010, Luis took one look and without hesitation committed to fund one third of the rent. He was a regular participant driving the rhythm section in the original Monday Featured Artist/jam session, our longest running event. This memorial is a celebration of his life, there will be rhythm…and lots of it!
The family requests that in lieu of flowers that a donation be made to Jazz Central Studios where his true passion survives. They can be sent in his name to PO Box 17310 Minneapolis, MN 55417, JazzCentralStudios.org/donation, or hand delivered at the memorial.
