Sheila E. was born into a family of great musicians including her percussionist father Pete Escovedo, uncle Coke Escovedo and godfather Tito Puente.  Exceptionally talented and well-loved, Sheila E. has remained relevant for more than five decades.  At age five, Sheila made her first public appearance and after a solo performance, realized she was going to be a percussionist.  The drummer, singer, songwriter, author, humanitarian, and musical icon still follows the beat of her own drum and continues to give her audiences extraordinary live performances.  Najee, a New England Conservatory of Music alumnus, has worked with some of music’s elite including Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock.  Najee’s eighteenth recording, Center of the Heart, showcases his technical agility, grace, passion and fearlessness on every track.  An astute soprano, tenor, and alto saxophonist and flautist, he has collaborated with some of the best in the business including Kenny Lattimore, pianist Greg Manning, saxophonist Darren Rahn, and keyboardist/producer Demonte Posey.  Four80East is a Toronto-based studio band that began as an outlet to play improvisational dance music.  In 2015, the group released their seventh studio album, Positraction, and solidified their self-proclaimed “trip-jazz” sound.  JJ Sansaverino has multiple Billboard-charting singles and three highly acclaimed CDs over the past twenty-five years.  The New York guitarist has played to millions while touring the world with his “Benson meets Santana” musical style.  The Berklee School of Music graduate and award winner brings his vibe of smooth jazz, r & b, and reggae to solo performances and to collaborations with artists including Maxi Priest, Gerald Albright, Sean Paul, Rick Braun and the Marley Family.
