Sheila E. – One Night Only!

Sheila E. – One Night Only!

The drummer/percussionist who needs no introduction, Emmy & Grammy Nominee Sheila E. 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 performers in the world; she became a top session and touring musician before the age of 20, performing and recording with George Duke, Herbie Hancock, Billy Cobham, Con Funk Shun and 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, Prince helped to catapult Sheila E. 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. Her producing and arranging talents have been showcased on the Latin Grammy Awards, Summer Olympics, WOW Awards, ALMA’s, and the Image Awards. Including becoming television’s first female musical director for Magic Johnson’s “The Magic Hour,” Sheila’s enthusiasm for “passing it on” to a new generation of players led her to design “ClassE” Custom Series for adults, and the “Sheila E.’s Player Series” for children both with TOCA distributed by Kaman Music.
