Our 12th Annual An Evening for the Station benefit concert will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at 6:30pm.

Union Station Homeless Services and Master of Ceremonies Hector Elizondo invite you to join us for a wonderful evening of Latin Jazz. This year’s concert will feature Sheila E. and The E Family with Pete Escovedo, Juan Escovedo and Peter Michael Escovedo.

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 has performed and toured with such respected artists as Tito Puente, Mongo Santamaria, Bobby McFerrin, Cal Tjader, Woody Herman, Billy Cobham, Boz Scaggs, Anita Baker, Arturo Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, and Chick Corea to name a few. Today, Pete leads one of the country’s top orchestras, performing their own unique brand of Latin jazz.

Pete’s daughter and Grammy® nominee Sheila E.keeps the rhythm solid on drums, congas and vocals. She has performed with a who’s who of the music industry, 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 performances captivate audiences, lending his talents to the congas, drums and vocals. Juan has performed with a roster of noted artists including Patti Labelle, Jodi Watley, Lou Bega, MC Hammer, En Vogue, Herbie Hancock and many more.

On bongos, drums and vocals is youngest son Peter Michael Escovedo, an Emmy® nominee for his work as Music Director and Producer for The Wayne Brady Show. He has contributed his talents to Mariah Carey, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Nicks, and George Michael, but to name a few. His energy and stage presence always electrify the crowd!
