They were the most incredible live "big band" I've ever seen. The show was great! Glad we got seated in the middle; I think we'd be deaf if we sat in the front!

Yoshi's is a wonderful place. Went to see the Claudia Quintet celebrating Kenneth Patchen's 100th birthday. Monday nights tend to be the more adventurous and experimental shows. Highly recommended.

First time at Yoshi's.....great venue, very helpful in terms of finding seats, etc., lots of variety on the menu, we had good seats because we ate earlier in the restaurant ( which was really good food, good service, etc.), but any seat would be...continued

I had never heard of Leni Stern before this offer. Decided to take a chance since the tickets were so inexpensive. She is an exceptional guitarist, and her backup band, three men from Mali and Nigeria playing various percussion, were a...continued

I liked it specially when Laurie sang "My Funny Valentine" and "Somewhere over the Rainbow". It was great to hear familiar tunes. They're both great musicians. It's clear they have a following although my hubby didn't enjoy it as much. For...continued

I took three 20 year old young men with me for exposure to music they might not usually hear. I am the mom of one of them and they enjoyed it as well. I love that Yoshi's is family friendly! so close to transportation, and reasonably priced. We...continued

It was a great show further enhanced by guests: a soprano & Clarice's Dad who played the guitar!

Leni Stern is a fantastic muscian but does she have to sing? Masters of African Percussion are just that - masters! Loved the music.

Ruben Studdard was great. I wish he had sung more of his original music but he did explain why he couldn't all in all it was a great show! Wasn't really happy with my calamari I ordered though very chewy.

Spirited set, played to an almost full house. Great energy and amazing percussion on the "talking drum."

The audience's love for Kenny Neal was half the fun, and he took advantage of it by roaming in the audience for one number, and doing a call and response (men and women) in another song, which was wonderful. He was also great on the Mississippi...continued

The Gospel Hummingbirds were AWESOME! I loved their music, their style, and they really got the audience involved. My only thing was that it would have been nice if they told us in advance that the show was only for one hour. (This also explains...continued

The quartet was fabulous! The ensemble was fantastic, these guys have been playing together for a while, or so it seemed. There were some original "riffs", mainly on the bass, playing in the upper part of the double bass. Mr. Parker is a true...continued

The tribute was very jazzy with a band playing much of Biggie's music. I wish they had played the lyrics over the band as well but it was still good. It could have been great though. My only disappointment here was that my jacket got stolen/taken...continued

Yoshi's is a great space to see live music. The acoustics were crystal clear and there is really not a bad seat in the house. It is fantastic to see the performers in such an intimate venue and I will definitely be going back. The performer we...continued
