Carlos Santana Marries Drummer Cindy Blackman in Hawaii

Guitar God and Rob Thomas collaborator Carlos Santana married girlfriend Cindy Blackman today in rain-soaked Maui, HI.  Blackman, an in-demand drummer best known for her work with Lenny Kravitz as well as jazz legends like Ron Carter, first said "I do" on stage during a Santana concert in Chicago last July.  The marriage is Blackman’s first and Santana’s second – his first ended in 2007.

The couple was married at the Ritz-Carlton Maui and despite the rainy weather, all reports indicate that it was a beautiful ceremony.

Santana pals Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter performed at the reception, so we are guessing that was pretty cool too.

Our best wishes to the happy couple!
