Poncho Sanchez

If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez’s music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling.

EVENT DETAILS:

7pm meet in the bar area at Yoshi's San Francisco for a drink or bite to eat and meet others in the group to socialize.

7:30pm move to seats in performance venue - organizer to arrange seating for the group under "Live Jazz Meetup"

(Poncho Sanchez is an extremely popular entertainer, and Saturday night shows, at Yoshi's, sell-out fast.  Get your tickets early, so you don't miss out).

    I totally agree, Doug. It helps to have name recognition to attract crowds so then younger players get a chance to be heard.
    There's a Salsa festival in Havana next April, starting April 14th, I believe. That would be the ultimate trip for Afro-Cuban/Latin jazz.
    Thank you, Doug, for hosting. You did a great job getting everyone seated together...........and such great seats!

    These guys know how to put on a performance that gets the audience out of their seats and dancing. They thumped a variety of exciting beats that made it hard to sit still.
    Poncho is all about percussion, but the brass section was the strength of the show.

    A 9-piece high energy band, we got a 90-min. taste of Poncho Sanchez. Surprising mix of standard and Latin jazz, I wish they started with the last number. Doug did a good job hosting a large group.

      Hi Doug, Dave Lehr here. I signed up, and purchased ticket on wed. Was I needing to do anything else?

    • Doug

      Missed the Wednesday cutoff for confirmation, but adding one extra to the seating shouldn't be a problem.

    Best friend coming in from out-of-town last minute. Sorry! Next time.

  • Barbara & C.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll go ahead and buy the ticket.

    November 3, 2013

  • Barbara & C.

    I am unsure of what to do cuz when I go to buy a ticket they give me a seat number like GA13-1. Should I go ahead and buy a ticket with a specific number on it, if we are supposed to be in a group?

    November 2, 2013

    • Barbara P

      I got ticket like that but said general admission when printing it out

      November 2, 2013

    • Doug

      GA is a General Admission code; it has nothing to do with where you will actually sit in the General Admission area.

  • Barbara P

    Doug I purchased two tickets under my name Barbara Pratley. Do you need the name of my guest?

    1 · November 1, 2013

    • Doug

      That would be necessary, only if one of your tickets were in the guest's name.

      November 1, 2013

  • Liz Del S.

    Thanks again for your coordination, my friend Frances will be attending Poncho Sanchez with us.
