The Escovedo Family is a Dynasty of Love & Artistry…
Native Californian Pete Escovedo discovered and cultivated a love and passion for music, which soon led him to embrace Latin Jazz and pass it on to his sons and daughters as his father did before him.
Pete’s daughter and Grammy nominee Sheila E. keeps the rhythm solid on drums, congas and vocals. Her impressive roster is a who’s who of the industry, performing with artists such as Ringo Starr, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, George Duke, Placido Domingo and countless others. As Musical Director for “Fiesta Latina: In Performance at The White House,” Sheila recently earned her first Emmy nomination.
First born son Juan Escovedo brings his flavor of R&B to the table. His dynamic performance captivates audiences, lending his talents to the congas, drums and vocals.
On bongos, drums and vocals is youngest son Peter Michael, an Emmy nominee for his work as Music Director and Producer for The Wayne Brady Show. Peter Michael was also the Musical Director for The Martin Short Show. His energy and stage presence always electrifies the crowds.
The E Family is a force to be reckoned with. A memorable performance with the late Tito Puente was beautifully featured in the “Latina Familia” project. In addition, The E Family can be seen in the Latin pop culture movie,“Chasing Papi” performing their original track “Escondia” with the title track “Favorite Fantasy” co-written by Sheila E. Collectively they are the latest evolution of one of the most amazing musical family dynasties that continues to deliver a colorful and powerful concoction of music to soothe the soul.
