Sheila E.

Saturday, July 2, 7:30 pm.

Grammy-nominated singer, drummer, and percussionist Sheila E first picked up the drumsticks and started making music at the age of three, taught by her legendary father, percussionist Pete Escovedo. As the goddaughter of Tito Puente, music was the heartbeat of her family, and despite Sheila’s impoverished childhood in Oakland, California, her family stayed strong, inspired by the music they played nightly in their living room. When she was five, Sheila delivered her first solo performance to a live audience. By 19, she had fallen in love with Carlos Santana. By 21, she met Prince at one of her concerts. After working with Prince during the recording of his 1984 album, Purple Rain—on which she recorded vocals for the song “Erotic City” (the B-side to the single “Let’s Go Crazy”)—she joined the former’s backing band as Prince’s drummer and eventual bandleader before leaving the group in 1989. Her solo career spawned such hits as “Hold Me,” “A Love Bizarre” and “The Glamorous Life.”
