Legendary percussionist and now memoirist, Pete Escovedo, will release his personal account of his life as a musician, artist, and patriarch of his musical family in his new memoir, My Life in the Key of E. This has been a dream of his that has taken 5 years to manifest, and one that he earnestly wants to share with all his fans, friends and family.

Hi Folks,

Sorry for not keeping in touch. By now you must have heard about the new E Spot in Studio City. It is run by my daughter, Sheila E.. A small but wonderful venue that is upstairs from Vittelo’s Resturant. It opened January 30th. Sheila played at the Grand Opening for 2 nights to sold out crowds.

I performed on Wednesday, February 4th, to kick off “Pete Escovedo Presents” every Wednesday night. You can go to Vittelo’s website to check out the latest schedule of bands that will be performing at the E Spot Lounge.

Please come and check it out. Great Food, Great Entertainment! 7 nights a week. Hope to see you there. Blessings,

Pete Escovedo
