My second time seeing Sara at a Yoshi's and she was excellent both times. She's got a beautiful, clear voice and interprets music in interesting ways. Her band really supplies wonderful arrangements for tunes ranging from Duke Ellington to Ben...continued

Larry and Krew were fabulous! I've been a fan for over 40 years and he's only gotten better. Unfortunately, the table service at Yoshis is so terrible - typically a 45 minute wait to receive a beverage and that's AFTER being forced to wait outside...continued

Freddie Jackson was great. he's a lot of fun and quite a character. And of course he can 'sang'.

I'm still waiting for yoshis to get a makeover and I'm going to put it on here every time cuz hopefully they read this. their bathrooms especially...continued

Macy Gray was enjoyable. The show seemed really short though. It also started late which is not uncommon for Yoshis esp. if you go to the late show.

Yoshis still needs a makeover badly. The interior and esp. the bathrooms. Seriously ripped...continued

Pharaoh Sanders has been peculiar for a long time. Given the incoherent performance I saw by him 20 years ago my expectations were low. Something of a legend though and with some good recent reviews, it seemed a good excuse to finally make it to...continued

I liked it. They were entertaining and they sounded good. I really liked the bang bang song and the last song they did with no vocal beat. Too bad some jerk had his/her cell phone on. The lead blonde guy reminded me a bit of Mick Jagger with his...continued

Syleena Johnson was wonderful. Great voice, funny, nice dance moves and she interacted well with the audience.

We are still waiting for Yoshis to remodel (get a makeover). They need new chairs (some are ripped, old and uncomfortable), new clean...continued

I'd found AJ Croce's first cd at a record store ages ago and have enjoyed it but I'd not had the opportunity to see him live. Guy's an amazing musician! We sat right up front and got to watch him work his lightning hands on both piano and guitar,...continued

While I've had a few of Karrin's cds from way back, I wasn't prepared for how talented and fun she was. The Rodgers and Hammerstein focus from the latest album was right up my alley but the Jobim, blues and other bits were terrific too. And the...continued

It was a great way to spend Mother's Day. She is a performer that makes one feel like she is one's friend that has this amazing talent to sing and entertain. I had never been to Oakland Yoshi's and I found the venue very good for hearing singers...continued

Stanley Clark - I mean come on! He and his two young prodigies killed it once again. Always a stellar show.

Nice venue especially when not too crowded. Competent middle of the road playing with some good side guitar from Dark Star Orchestra members. Not bad for a Tuesday night.

Iron Butterfly still rocks it after all these years! The magic is still there . . . . Is service finally getting a little better at Yoshis after EVERYONE's complained for five years straight?

Yoshi's is always a great place to be and The YellowJackets brought out the best it offers. The band was tight, yet experimental, giving us fusion at its finest. So nice to have Oakland Local Will Kennedy from Skyline High hittin' the finest of...continued

Sushi was a bit overpriced for the quality (average), but the music venue itself, which is intimate & classy, makes it all worthwhile. I've always had an amazing time seeing a live show at Yoshi's. It is one the best places to see live music in...continued
