Red Light Saints are Back from their Cuba Tour 2011 and it couldn’t have gone any better. It was incredible !!! We did everything we set out to do and all kinds of things we never expected. Our time in Cuba was filled with the most amazing experiences, crazy shows, good friends, non-stop hustling, powerful moments, great musicians, new fans, laughs, broken guitars….and Bucaneros!!!
