Poncho Sanchez and His Latin Jazz Band

October 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Poncho Sanchez
The Barlow & West County World Jazz presents Poncho Sanchez & His Latin Jazz Band for an evening of Music, Food, Wine and Dancing Al Fresco!

About this Event

We are thrilled to bring Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band to West Sonoma County for the inaugural outdoor concert of our World Jazz Series. 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.

His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz – conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. You do not want to miss this exciting opportunity to create timeless memories outdoors in beautiful West Sonoma County!


The evening begins with an exquisite three-course Latin inspired meal created exclusively for this event by chef Carlos Rosas of barrio. Stepping above and beyond their gourmet-style street food you have all come to know and love, they will be providing the following three-course menu for our Premium guests. All other ticket holders can purchase food a la carte pre-show.

First Course: Ahi Tuna Tartare Tostadita with Chipotle Aioli and micro-cilantro
