Percussion Powerhouse Sheila E. to Bring the Beat to the Chumash Casino

World-class drummer, percussionist and singer Sheila E. will share the beat of her own drum in the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016. Tickets for the show are $25.

In the late ’70s while performing with her father, legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo, Sheila E. was introduced to Prince, who, throughout the next decade, helped Sheila light a fire that led to the launch of her solo career.

They worked together on the Purple Rain album and created “Let’s Go Crazy” and “Erotic City.”

By age 27, Sheila had produced her own solo album titled The Glamorous Life, sharing her unique musical style with the world.

She lit up the Billboard charts with more popular hits such as “The Glamorous Life” and “A Love Bizarre.”

Throughout her career Sheila has worked with some of the industry’s most influential artists, including Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie and Beyoncé.

She’s recorded seven solo albums, acted in several films and pursued several philanthropic projects. Her most recent projects include her first album in 13 years, Icon, and her autobiography, The Beat Of My Own Drum.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
