About Sheila E:
Emmy & Grammy Nominee Sheila Escovedo picked up the drumsticks and
started making music at the precocious age of three, while watching
her legendary father, percussionist Pete Escovedo rehearse. Sheila
delivered her first solo performance to a live audience two years
later and has since established herself as one of the most talented
percussionist/drummers and performers in the world. Best known to
music fans as Sheila E., she became a top session and touring musician
before the age of 20, performing and/or recording with George Duke,
Herbie Hancock, Billy Cobham, Con Funk Shun and countless others.
Later with Marvin Gaye on his final world tour, Diana Ross, Lionel
Richie, Gloria Estefan, Babyface, Patti LaBelle, and Steve Nicks among
In the 1980’s, Sheila’s friend Prince helped to catapult her to her
own pop superstardom. Her obvious talent and hits like “The Glamorous
Life” and “A Love Bizarre,” plus her pivotal work on other
Prince-related projects contributed to her international stardom.
Particularly proud moments include her participation in the “We Are
The World” session, and a memorable performance on the Oscars with
virtuoso Placido Domingo. In recent years, she has served as musical
director for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce’ Knowles, and
A must see, rare show for Sheila E, Prince, Salsa & Percussion fans alike.
