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

The night began great, we found street parking less than a block from the event. We walked up to the door and our name was on the will call list. They also had tickets to another event the end of the month @ House of Blues. Getting a drink was fast as they hardly had anyone buying drinks (one good thing of this being 18 over). The downstairs area to sit was all taken so we headed upstairs, we actually ended up being happier upstairs as we had great views and the bathrooms upstairs did not have long lines. The first to bands to perform were ok, but the last band was awesome, the singer knew how to get the crowd started. People were up and dancing, unfortunately the security that was working there was not trying to allow them to dance. Security was way to aggressive with some of the people dancing in the pit. When the show ended one short little guy socked one of the security guards in the nose with a bottle, at that point chaos erupted. A lot of the guys that had been kicked out must have been outside waiting for there friends and so they started throwing beer bottles @ the doors. Security was still trying to have people leave thru those doors, freaking IDIOTS, talk about throwing us into the lions den. These guys were pissed @ security not at other concert goers. Finally they let everyone leave thru a side door and I heard they had called the cops. Sucks that a good concert was ruined by overly aggressive security guards.
