Friday, Sept. 17
Santana
Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana holds court at the Amway Center Friday as part of his “Blessings and Miracles” tour. And we could use a little of both these days. The Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-residing guitarist will lead his band — which includes his wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, on drums — through a set of hits and new material from the new Blessings and Miracles album.

Call us crazy, but we think he can probably manage. 8 p.m., Amway Center, 400 W. Church St., amwaycenter.com, $47-$326

Black Tusk

8 p.m., Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave., willspub.org, $13-$15.

CeCe Teneal
Bombastic local soul singer pays tribute to her roots with “Portrait of a Queen,” a night of musical homage to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. With several decades’ worth of anthems to choose from — “Respect,” “Natural Woman,” “Chain of Fools” and possibly hundreds more — Teneal should have no problem putting on an unforgettable evening. 7 p.m., Tuffy’s Music Box, 200 Myrtle Ave., Sanford, tuffyscider.com, $20.
