We are Saints of havana


Saints of Havana is a powerhouse band based in Nashville, Tennessee who have been raising eyebrows and garnering thousands of fans as well as the respect and admiration of the Country Music Industry. Signed by George Strait’s Manager, Erv Woolsey in 2013, the Saints stand poised to take their sound to a worldwide audience.

Saints of Havana always emphasizes the quality of each song, focusing on memorable music and meaningful lyrics. To add to their already massive live performance appeal is the poignancy of the “Saints of Havana” story. Their history bonds together two brothers, Cuban immigrants, and an all-American, blonde-haired, blue-eyed front-man, destined to jointly epitomize the definition of “The American Dream”.

On stage and in recording studios all over Nashville, the Saints of Havana sound is reminiscent of the great 70's era bands. Singer, Aaron Shea, along with the talents of Rey and Cesar Montecristo, combine the hard-learned lessons of their often difficult childhoods and their experiences as self-made men. The result - an adrenaline-filled, beautiful and heartfelt message, delivered through music.

The Saints of Havana welcome all with smiling faces and a sincere demeanor. Stop by and say hello to this unforgettable Nashville band. They are sure to welcome you to become a part of their vision and ever-evolving human experience.
