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
others.

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
Prince.

A must see, rare show for Sheila E, Prince, Salsa & Percussion fans alike.

No dress codeA strictly 18 and over event.About Marsha Ambrosius:
“What is there not to say about “The Songstress?” Talented
singer-songwriter, incredible live performer, revered platinum-selling
artist, Grammy® nominated and after over a decade in the music game,
Marsha Ambrosius is still here. Telling her story, captivating
audiences with a perfected freshness and proving that good music will
always prevail. Now two years after her solo debut Late Nights & Early
Mornings, Marsha Ambrosius is ready to take you on a journey once
again with her highly-anticipated sophomore album Friends & Lovers.Hailing from Liverpool, England, fans first got a taste of Marsha’s
talent as the singing half of the duo Floetry. Their 2000 debut
Floetic produced signature singles like “Say Yes” and “Getting Late”
as well as four Grammy nods. Following the 2005 release of their
second studio album, Flo’Ology, the ladies veered creatively and
personally. While the split was difficult, Marsha continued to build a
name for herself as a songwriter and producer, penning “Butterflies”
for the late Michael Jackson and other hits for artists such as Alicia
Keys, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx and Nas, and was honored by BMI as
their Songwriter of the Year.In 2009 Marsha signed to J Records and her solo debut Late Nights &
Early Mornings was released in 2011. The album debuted at #1 on the US
Billboard Hot R&B Charts and #2 on the US Billboard Hot 200 behind
Adele and ahead of Mumford & Sons; the first time in over 20 years
that British Acts had topped the US charts. The album also produced
hit singles “Hope She Cheats On You” and “Far Away” which landed
Marsha two more Grammy® nods for a total of six nominations. She also
won the Centric Award at the 2011 BET Awards, won Record of The Year
(Ashford & Simpson Songwriters Award) at the 2011 Soul Train Awards
for “Far Away,” and capped off 2011 with a performance at the White
House for The President and First Family at The National Christmas
Tree Lighting. Marsha was also nominated for Best Female R&B Artist at
the 2012 BET Awards.Dedicating most of her 2012 to making new magic in the studio, Marsha
kicked of 2013 with a string of critically acclaimed live shows and
released new single “Cold War,” produced by Diplo and Maxime Picard,
the first single from her new album Friends & Lovers. Marsha calls the
album an autobiography of her past relationships. “Friends & Lovers is
to be listened to responsibly,” Marsha jokingly says. “Because you
don’t know who will end up becoming a friend or will end up being a
lover. It might be the wrong one so that whole album explores the
decisions that were made in my life that made these songs possible.”Marsha Ambrosius on Youtube:
