Poncho Sanchez and his band of stellar musicians heated up Yoshi's over the weekend with two nights of double-backed, salsa-shakedown, sold-out shows. Brimming with dynamic energy and complete with sax, trumpet, trombone, percussion, keys and drum-beats galore, the band swept Yoshi's into a colorful whirlwind of jazzy goodness before gently serenading the crowd back to the ground with ballads, brass, and beats.
