Sara Gazarek was a delightful discovery! So glad I looked into her.
Crystal clear voice, interesting phrasing and an engaging stage presence. And backed by a terrific trio. I didn't expect such a full house for a name I'd never heard of but...continued

The Jazz Room at Yoshi's is a very elegant place and has a nice, cozy element to it.

Lynne is a great find among current pianists - her trio covered Blondie, Sting, the Beatles, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonius Monk with equal aplomb. She visited with the audience outside after her set and was gracious and signed all kinds of...continued

Been to the Oakland Yoshi's for dinner and a show so I have a lot to compare :)

The food is wonderful at both locals, but the elegance of the SF restaurant was AMAZING!! Felt like I was in a fancy restaurant. There was a great band playing...continued

Dionne Farris was a blast! Always loved the one hit but didn't really know much about her beyond that. A terrific show from a star with an incredible personality. I'll be watching for her return (and following her on social media).

I saw Jane Monheit years ago at Yoshi's Oakland and was underwhelmed. Glad I gave her another chance. She's definitely lightened up over the years and still has such a beautiful voice and wonderful phrasing. Her comment saying she's really a 9 yo...continued

If the show hadn't started so late, I'm sure I'd have given the event the 5 stars. I can't understand why venues book 8 and 10 shows if they can't turn the room around efficiently. Peabo was in fine voice and sang enough of the hits to keep...continued

Juice Newton...it only took me 30 years to check her out but she's still very much at the top of her form! What a voice! An acoustic trio is a real feat to pull off and she did it. Wonderful a capella songs thrown in too. Juice is a character for...continued

Linda looked wonderful and was in fine voice (despite claiming to have a cold) and I think this is the best venue for her out of the 5 in the city where I've seen her perform. She sang some of her hits, covers of others (Patsy Cline and Adele) and...continued

Probably one of the most disappointing performances I've seen. Rita Coolidge appeared to be battling something in her throat as well as in her ear (faulty earpiece?). Some numbers were wonderful, especially the BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE duet with...continued

The Roy Hargrove quintet were fantastic. What a wonderfully crafted set performed by 5 excellent musicians. Each member was allowed to shine; in particular, the magical drummer Quincy Phillips. This was a WOW experience for only $11!

Spencer Day knows how to put on a show! His silky smooth voice and clever phrasing coupled with inventive lyrics and music make him a treasure to be savored and shared.

We had a very nice evening at Yoshi's once again, this time with singer Angie Stone. She put on a very good show, she had a good band backing her including fabulous backup singers, the service was good and the crowd was into it. No complaints...continued

Did not know what to expect. Took public transportation which was easy. We got great 2nd row center table seats. Very nice club with a full bar and stage and the theater is inside. Acoustics were great. Paula Cole gave an intimate warm show and...continued
