This June 22nd the party starts with Poncho Sanchez at Saint Rocke at 142 Pacific Coast Hwy, Hermosa Beach 90254 California. This mix of latin jazz and afro-cuban sounds are going to turn on the dance floor to the beat of the best salsa music in the city.
For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straight ahead jazz, gritty soul music, and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. For this night, he invited the guitar player David Maldonado, so you can only expect surprises and good dancing moments.
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 have lasted and continue to pass on his creative sensibilities to this day. With all that effort in 1999 he becomes a Grammy winner for Best Latin Jazz Album.
The concert is on June 22nd in Saint Rocke at Pacific Coast HWY. 90254 Hermosa Beach CA 310-372-0035.
