Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 26 for $20.

In the 1980s, Sheila E. lit up the Billboard charts with songs like “The Glamorous Life” and “A Love Bizarre.” She has remained a significant influence on the industry, collaborating with greats such as Ringo Starr, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Kanye West.

Born Sheila Escovedo, she first picked up the drumsticks and started making music at the age of 3 with help from 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, her family stayed strong, inspired by the music they played nightly in their living room.

When she was only 5, Sheila delivered her first solo performance to a live audience.

By her early 20s, she had already performed with George Duke, Lionel Richie, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock and Diana Ross. She met Prince at one of her concerts, and they would eventually join forces and collaborate for more than two decades, creating hits that catapulted Sheila E. to her own pop superstardom.

Don’t miss an opportunity to see this world-class performer when she takes the stage in the intimate Samala Showroom.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 18-or-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Chumash or online by clicking here.

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!
