Vitello's presents legendary Latin jazz percussionist Poncho Sanchez. Having released over 24 albums, Poncho Sanchez and his band bring a live show of pure energy to the stage. Sanchez's signature combination of salsa, straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz and soul is nothing less than dazzling. If music were about pictures, percussionist Sanchez's sounds would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. His latest album, with Terrence Blanchard on trumpet, is Chano Y Dizzy. Learn More

In conjunction with the Getty-initiated Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, The Grammy Museum, along with Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, is honored to present iconic, Grammy Award-winning rock group America. Currently celebrating their 40th anniversary together, America founders Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell have performed approximately 100 shows a year together since their formation in 1970. Sons of U.S. Air Force fathers, the band members met in England when they were students at London Central High School. Their debut album, released in 1971, quickly went Platinum. Five subsequent releases went either Gold or Platinum and their greatest hits compilation reached the four million sales mark. Hear the band, in MCASD’s beautiful Sherwood Auditorium, in discussion about their success as hit writers of enduring rock-folk-pop classics, their celebrated 40th Anniversary Tour and the release of Back Pages, their newest album, a collection of glimmering interpretations of timeless songs. After the interview, moderated by Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, America will take audience questions and will perform an acoustic set.
