The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes the Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band for New Years Eve! Band members: Poncho Sanchez (Congas/Vocals), Joey De Leon (Timbales), Rene Camacho (Bass), Ron Blake (Trumpet), Robert Hardt (Alto and Tenor Saxophone), Francisco Torres (Trombone), Giancarlo Anderson (percussion) and Andy Langham (Piano). Doors open at 6:30PM and the music starts 8:45 PM & continues until 10:00 PM. For late show attendees, doors at 10:30 PM and music starts at 11PM.

Given all the ups and downs the music industry has experienced in the past three decades, it’s remarkable to find anyone who still retains a sense of allegiance or loyalty. Master Conguero, Band Leader and Latin Jazz Legend Poncho Sanchez is the exception. Thirty years ago, his close friend, multi-instrumentalist jazz icon Cal Tjader recommended he sign with Carl Jefferson’s Concord Records. Tjader told him that Jefferson was looking for new talent and he highly recommended Sanchez. Jefferson gave Poncho a one record deal with his Concord Picante imprint, and the rest is Latin Jazz history. Thirty-one years and 26 albums later, Sanchez, whose Live in Hollywood recording released in 2012 on Concord Picante, is still with the label.

Sanchez turned 61 last year and received A Lifetime Achievement Award from the Latin Recording Academy. Being able to make a living playing music is a dream come true. As a teen, Sanchez first learned to play guitar from “the guy across the street” because he couldn’t afford to buy an instrument and his friend would let him borrow his guitar. He then gravitated to percussion after his siblings introduced him to the music that was then called cha-cha music.

Whether it’s salsa, straight-ahead jazz, Latin jazz, or even elements of soul and blues, the mesmerizing array of sounds and colors from Poncho Sanchez's youth have telegraphed across the decades and continue to inform his creative sensibilities to this day.

"He interpreted blues standards, gut-bucket boogie, country blues, and his original blues compositions about love gained and lost through the complex narrative of his own wayward soul…The blues are a living, breathing, and feeling thing, and Hammond in his fiftieth year on the road is a legendary master at live performance." - Blues Revue
