A musician of many talents
Although Poncho Sanchez was born in Texas, he grew up in California. Throughout his youth, he was exposed to a wide variety of music, with Afro-Cuban, blues,and jazz particularly influential upon him. His first real foray into music was when he auditioned to play guitar for a band (The Halos) across the street as a kid. Although he didn’t cut it as a guitarist, he was chosen to join them as the lead singer. Not long after, in high school, he got his hands on a pair of conga drums and immediately fell in love with them: the rest is history. Fast forward through the years and he had become one of the most successful percussionists in the US (if not the world), alongside other fantastic conga drummers such as Pete Escovedo and Sheila E. Poncho Sanchez tours regularly, so be sure to check StubHub’s listings for a chance to get Poncho Sanchez tickets.
Grammy Award-winning music from a Conga drum master
With such a long-running career, it’s not surprising to learn that Poncho Sanchez has an extensive back catalogue of music. Over the years, he has put out more than thirty albums and over six compilation albums, as well as making a staggering 90+ appearances on other musicians’ albums. He has collaborated with some of the best in the business, too. For example, he and Terence Blanchard created the 2011 album "Chano y Dizzy!" together, and Tower of Power featured on his 2005 album "Do It!". One of Poncho Sanchez’s highlights, though, has to be the album "Latin Soul", which earned him a prestigious Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Performance in the year 2000—a feat that most musicians can only dream of. Although he's primarily known as a conga drummer, his list of credits includes singing, writing, producing and playing a myriad of other instruments—a testament to his musical prowess and something that makes each Poncho Sanchez tour such a great experience.
